About Stanford's Technology Governance Framework

Stanford's enterprise technology governance framework involves four major components:

  1. Executive committees, which provide vision and set priorities
  2. Budget committees, which review and approve funding requests
  3. Technology governance councils, which provide executive strategic and budgetary oversight of Stanford’s enterprise technology systems and associated roadmaps
  4. Committees and advisory groups, which make project decisions, mitigate project risks, and approve enhancements

Together, these committees, councils, and groups work to ensure we deliver the best technology services and solutions to our Stanford community that enable excellence in our teaching, research, and healthcare mission.
