Project Governance

Issues of governance of the BTO projects are distinct from the administrative reporting structure for the BTO as an office. ​ ​

Through the administrative reporting structure, the BTO will advise/decide on which projects should be supported and their relative priority.​

The BTO will have authority over and responsibility for the array of institutional projects that the Provost and Executive Committee determine are within the purview of the BTO. ​

Each project will have its own governance structure with a VC/VP level Project Sponsor responsible for the scope and goals of the individual project. The Project Sponsor will work directly with the Project Manager to ensure the quality and delivery of the project.​

Given the complex, interactive nature of BTO projects, decisions regarding budget changes and conflicts between projects are the responsibility of the BTO.​ ​

The goal is to ensure that BTO projects are user focused, owned by the functional business units, and integrated into the institution strategic goals. This is best practice for successful transformational projects.​
