IT Office is accountable for creating value of IT investments and is responsible for reporting the value of the IT application portfolio. The University Management has given the IT Office a mandate to have the strategic responsibility for all the common IT at the university, applications and technology. Among other things the IT Office is supposed to contribute with information over the status of all IT systems, investment plans involving IT and the annual cost for IT in the university’s annual report. This information is also an important input to our corporate strategy for IT and to IT related decisions on maximizing value of investments.
