There are no fixed terms.  The memberships will be reviewed annually by the Co-Chairmen.

Meetings

The Administrative Technology Subcommittee will meet at least quarterly. Any of the members may call a special meeting at any time. Scheduling the time, date and place of the Subcommittee meetings shall be the responsibility of the Co-Chairmen of the Subcommittee. The Co-Chairmen shall also be responsible for the minutes of the meetings. Meeting minutes will be maintained in the Office of the Chief Information Officer.

Charge

The purpose of the Administrative Technology Subcommittee is to coordinate information technology activities among the schools and administrative technology to:

  • Share technology, applications, tools and techniques,
  • Promote common approaches and
  • Prioritize needs to improve efficiency and reduce costs to UTHealth as appropriate.

To accomplish this task it is expected that members will:

  • Have the authority to represent the interests of their constituency with consideration for UTHealth as a whole.
  • Share information with the subcommittee on current and future capabilities and needs for administrative technology as defined above.
  • Seek commonality where possible to promote resource sharing.
  • Anticipate future needs to allow time for collaboration.
  • Accept that some administrative technology can best serve the needs of UTHealth by being centralized while other administrative technology can best serve the needs of UTHealth by being decentralized.
  • Share deliberations of the subcommittee with their constituency.

The subcommittee will not focus on departmental concerns or day-to-day operations.  The subcommittee is not a project steering team.

The subcommittee will help define the strategic direction of administrative technology across all areas of UTHealth.  In doing so, it must:

  • identify and evaluate opportunities for the application of technology to administrative functions of the university,
  • recommend priorities based on the requirements and resources of the UTHealth and
  • recommend the allocation of resources in accordance with UTHealth priorities.

The subcommittee may also review and adopt policies for the application of administrative information technology on an institution-wide basis.
