As part of the budget planning process, we need to know the minimum annual IT costs that keep the University running. We need to look at key systems and determine the annual software, software maintenance, hardware and hardware maintenance costs and have these costs imbedded in the budget rather than looking at these costs on an annual basis. We would also like to find a way to do hardware evergreening.
This process does not include faculty or department-specific IT requirements.
For the virtual IT budget planning process, we have received IT budget and cost spreadsheets from the key institutional-wide service units.
