2009 Consolidation Plan

This information is from the 2009 OIT Consolidation. It is kept here for archival purposes.

The Office of Information Technology was established in summer 2009 by combining the former organizations Academic Affairs Computing Services, Administrative Computing Services (AdCom), Graduate Division Information Technology, Network and Academic Computing Services (NACS), and Office of Research Information Technology. We are now in the process of phased consolidation of the remaining IT groups in administrative units outside of OIT based on a plan approved by Provost Gottfredson.

The overall approach for moving forward with consolidation is explained in the Consolidation Overview. This is an important document that you will want to read prior to reading the other information on this page:

The high-level plan for consolidation of remaining administrative IT units is explained in the Consolidation Plan. Please note that discussions with units are continuing and some details and dates may change as we move forward with implementation:

The target dates for each remaining phase of consolidation, as well as the list of units slated for each phase, are summarized here:

Background Information

During late summer and early fall of 2009, OIT met with representatives of the leadership in UCI administrative units with IT staff. Each unit was also asked to complete a Departmental IT Questionnaire to summarize their IT situation and provide feedback about the consolidation:

The feedback received through these meetings and the questionnaire responses is summarized in these documents:

Additional information about the rationale for consolidation, and the beginnings of a vision for where we want UCI IT to end up, were shared in the following two OIT newsletter articles:
