The ATPC was formed in May 2017, replacing the previous technology project prioritization system in which “division reps” serving on ITS’  Project Management Group maintained separate request lists for their respective areas. The ATPC now serves as the project governance body for all areas reporting to the Provost.

ATPC Charge:

The ATPC evaluates, prioritizes, and oversees technology project requests requiring ITS resources for areas reporting to the Provost. The ATPC may additionally evaluate division-internal technology projects expected to have impact across areas/departments. ATPC members are selected by leaders of areas reporting to the Provost, plus the Academic Technology Coordinating Committee and Research Advisory Council. Representatives coordinate project requests and supporting data for their assigned area(s), evaluate/approve/prioritize requests based on strategic priorities, ROI, compliance, and other requirements, and communicate to constituents regarding process and outcomes.
