Technology Architecture Committee (TAC)
Comprised of technology leaders from across campus, the Technology Architecture Committee meets every two weeks to consider technology architectural standards and opportunities. The committee will apply an institutional perspective in governing application, data and technology architecture domains across the portfolio of major technology initiatives.
The committee consists of individuals who regularly commit a significant part of their professional time engaged in architecture activities along traditional lines of architecture: application, data, enterprise and technology architecture.
The TAC is led by the Chief Technology Officer and provides oversight and advice to institutional architecture strategy, execution, and alignment for IT operations and strategic plans.
The objectives of the TAC are to:
- Support the importance of institutional perspective intechnology decision-making
- Define technology architecture standards and best practices
- Define standard approaches for introducing new technology architecture initiatives
- Encourage alignment and adoption of standards and best practices
- Participate in project governance process as an advisory committee
- Support risk management objectives
The TAC provides recommendations on technology architecture opportunities, initiatives, and issues. These recommendations are in the form of a review and vote on proposed technology design changes. The votes are published on the ITS web site.
The TAC also considers strategic issues, technology explorationsand decisions escalated from the TOC, TIC, or IT teams and provides recommendations in the context of established enterprise technology standards.
As a team the members of the Technology Architecture Committee should demonstrate:
- Diversity of disciplinary backgrounds
- Varied perspectives
- Professional courtesy
- Willingness to engage and transform
