System IT Initiatives
Financial System Replacement
In 2016, a Finance Discovery Working Group was formed to work with a project team to initiate and develop the discovery process and provide member insight into the needs of a potential replacement financial system.
IT Governance Framework
In response to the Deloitte Audit and recommendations of the Chancellor of the Texas A&M System, a System-wide IT Governance and Collaboration Framework has been developed.
TAC 216 Companion Guide
Texas Administrative Code 216 requires institutions and agencies to manage information resources projects based on project management practices. It requires the definition of several minimum elements, including a single reference source for project management practices.
The A&M System has developed a TAC 216 Companion Guide to define a project, provide a method for classifying projects based on their complexity and risk, and outline minimum requirements for completing projects based on their classification level. The Companion Guide also outlines TAC 216 requirements for project governance, assessment and reporting.
Members are welcome to develop their own approach to compliance with TAC 216, or they are welcome to use the TAC 216 Companion Guide.
More information can be found on the TAC 216 Companion Guide page.
System IT Committees
Information Technology is an important resource of the A&M System. It is of the utmost importance that this resource is effectively utilized in the fulfilling of our mission. From time to time, committees are chartered to explore the need to elevate a technology to a system-wide initiative. Current A&M System IT Committees include:
As outlined in Texas Administrative Code 213, every member university must identify an Electronic and Information Resources Accessibility Coordinator (EIRAC). The EIRAC Committee is exploring the impact of TAC 206 and TAC 213 on accessibility for classroom technology and web site usability, and is developing a Center of Excellence to support EIRAC resources across the A&M System.
