The Formal Record documents the ICT Strategy Programme which took place in the University of Oxford from 2005-2006. It gives full detail on how the strategic plan was formulated, including information on the rationale behind the programme, the formation of work tasks and the creation of the ICT Strategy Steering Group.
The ICT Strategy Programme was commissioned by Professor Paul Slack, former ICT Committee Chair, in summer 2004 and will deliver an ICT Strategic Plan for the University which is in accordance with its Corporate Plan.
The formal consultation period for the ICT Strategic Plan was launched in July 2006 and the final plan will be completed by December 2006. In early 2007 the plan will be considered by Council. Following this, the publication and implementation of the plan will commence.
The ICT Strategy Steering group has been the main focus for ICT Strategic Plan. The Formal Record details how the group was formed and how its members were drawn from all parts of the University and from people with many different and varying roles. Particular efforts were made to ensure that the University's academic community was well represented on the Steering Group.
