IT Governance Council

This Council is currently led by a representative of the Office of Academic Affairs as appointed by the Provost and Chief Financial Officer (CFO), supported by the Chief Information Officer (CIO), and is comprised of representatives from all facets of the University.  The demands upon our enterprise technologies continue to escalate, and will continue to do so at an even faster rate in the future. We expect the IT Governance Council to evaluate and prioritize the demands upon enterprise technologies, oversee data access, evaluate and monitor progress on Enterprise IT activities, and ensure that enterprise IT activities are aligned with the objectives of LSU’s Strategic Plan. 

agenda & Meeting minutes


Developed jointly by Rick Koubeck, Executive Vice President and Provost and Dan Layzell, Executive Vice President and CFO in July 2017, the IT Governance Council provides oversight for IT activities on campus to ensure they are aligned with objectives stated in our Strategic Plan. The group uses data-supported measurements — such as strategic fit, return on value (ROV), total cost of ownership (TCO) and strategic directions — in prioritizing and finding resources for the many conflicting requests for IT services. As such, members of the group make recommendations for decisions based on overall University needs.
