The Information Technology Governance Committee (ITGC) oversees the governance of IT at UQ by ensuring that IT objectives align with UQ’s strategic direction.

The committee supports the Strategic Information Technology Council by reviewing IT projects and initiatives to make sure they are risk-assessed and delivering benefits while meeting the needs of UQ stakeholders.

The committee meets every six weeks.

Objectives
