IT Services & Strategic Sourcing provides expertise in enterprise architecture for the UW, as well as tools and infrastructure to support disaster response and critical business continuity for both UW-IT and the University.

  • Enterprise Architecture: Helps ensure that business and technology strategies and projects are in alignment with each other and UW-wide strategic directions by providing specific structure, principles and processes.
  • Program Management Office: Oversees UW-IT’s project portfolio to ensure that the overall collection of projects is aligned with the University’s mission and strategic goals, and provides project management for high-priority projects.
  • Technology Business Continuity: Helps assure that the UW can respond to outages and disasters, and recover critical business systems and capabilities after such events; oversees UW-IT planning for emergency preparedness and disaster response.
