IT Coordination Board zV/HRZ

The IT Coordination Board is a working group that structurally mirrors the collaboration between zV and HRZ on the top management level. In addition to strategic topics, the requirements management is an important part of the working group’s tasks. It accompanies, directs and promotes the requirements from initial idea to project completion. The working group also deals with improving the IT services for the University Administration continuously and is the central point of contact for all IT matters concerning both the University Administration and the HRZ.

The IT Coordination Board promotes the IT advancement and digitalisation of administrative processes (IT governance) by regularly communicating, agreeing on and monitoring the progress and development of IT requirements and IT projects. It is an integral part of the requirements and project management of the University Administration and HRZ. Together the board decides on IT requirements that either the University Administration has pre-prioritised or that still need to be prioritised. It also decides in which order these IT requirements should be implemented.
