IT Governance Committee

The IT Governance Committee was formed to review new software application requests in order to reduce the overall number of software packages that are outdated or redundant which are currently being supported by the ITS department. Reducing the overall number of software packages will reduce expenses, reduce risk, and improve overall service of the network. The Committee will:

  • Review all requests for new applications or software at the University, and make decisions about whether to approve the requests.
  • Oversee the review of all current university owned applications or software, with the charge to reduce the number from the current numbers of over 5,500 to a more manageable number.
  • Establish relative priorities for the timing of implementations of software purchases, version upgrades, and other projects.

Members Include:

  • Bhavani Koneru – Chief Technology Officer
  • Mike Grandy – Associate Vice President of Finance
  • Leonard Johnson – Associate Provost of Academic Operations
  • John Globoker – Director of Administration & Finance/CFO of Kendall College of Art & Design
  • Kristen Salomonson – Dean of Enrollment Services & Director of Admissions & Records
  • Jim Coo – IT Project Manager
