Oversight, reporting is required for IT projects and acquisitions at UW

Hand holding magnifying glass reading important document

To ensure responsible stewardship of UW resources, and to meet Washington state requirements for all public institutions, every University IT project and acquisition—equipment, software, services, etc.—must comply with oversight and reporting requirements under an updated UW policy. The Information Technology, Telecommunications and Networking Projects and Acquisitions Policy (Administrative Policy Statement 2.3) was recently revised to clarify state and UW reporting requirements, reflect the role of University IT governance boards and describe exemptions. Level of risk, costs and impact to the UW help determine the level of oversight.
