Charge 

The IT Transition Committee will develop and implement a roadmap to transition HR Information Management to central Information Technology Services. 

  • Advisory committee will provide campus perspective through input and feedback to technical committee
  • Technical committee will plan and implement the transition
  • Technical committee deliverables include researching and developing a transition process; delivering recommendations; implementing and evaluating approved plans; and providing monthly updates to Talent@Iowa Governance Council

Targeted task force recommendations 

  • Create an HR IT governance committee: Emphasize joint planning, prioritization, and coordination of HR IT with other campus IT functions. Support collaboration between IT service providers, primary and secondary customers, and constituents. Establish open and transparent methods for evaluating and addressing business needs. (Note: HR IT Governance Committee will implement additional task force recommendations once established, including optimizing current and future systems and increasing resources for HR IT.) 
  • Centralize IT teams and processes: Transition HR IT teams to central IT organizations, relying on functional HR workgroups and proposed governance committee to identify priorities and oversee systems. Leverage central IT expertise in data management, systems architecture, integrations, security, and other areas. 
  • Implement a state-of-the-art talent management system: Plan, budget, and acquire tools that address emerging talent-management strategies, starting with talent acquisition. Address the full suite of talent-management needs for varied constituencies in a time frame that respects those needs. (Note: This recommendation is shared with the Talent Acquisition Committee.)
