4. ICT SSG Launched
The first meeting of the ICT Strategy Steering Group took place on
Tuesday, 6 September at the Saïd Business School. The minutes of the
first meeting are now available via
The meeting was opened by the Vice-Chancellor who stressed three
main points, summarised as follows:
- The University’s draft corporate plan included a firm
commitment to developing a coherent ICT strategy by April
- Secondly, there would never be sufficient resources to meet
all of the University’s aspirations. This underlined the importance
of using, to the best possible effect, resources provided for
support activities such as ICT.
- Finally, one of the University’s great strengths was its
federal structure and none of the thinking behind the establishment
of the ICT Strategy Steering Group challenged the federal nature of
the University. Indeed, conversely, there was scope for a more
coherent ICT strategy and set of policies to underpin the enhanced
fulfilment of individual aspirations.
The Vice-Chancellor concluded by encouraging everyone to commit
energy to ensuring that a visionary ICT strategy was developed, and
asked the Steering Group to rise to the challenge of drafting both
strategy and policy.
The ICT Strategy Group membership and terms of reference were
approved by Council on 12 September 2005.
