Within DIT, Campus Development is a sub-committee of the Senior Leadership Team (SLT) with responsibility for ensuring that the full benefits of relocation to the Grangegorman campus are optimised for all staff & students, and to plan for, and maintain, the DIT infrastructure to meet the educational needs and standards of the Institute in line with the approved Strategic Plan and approved School/Functional area plans.
Under the direction of its Chair, Mr. Paul Flynn, Director of Campus Services & Relocation, Campus Development approves an annual programme of work for ICT Services to undertake in support of the Institute’s mission. This work programme can require significant capital funding in addition to recurrent pay and non-pay budgets to deliver its objectives.
Campus Development meets on a monthly basis to review progress towards the achievement of agreed objectives, and to give formal assurance to SLT regarding the efficient and effective use of resources in supporting the development and operation of the campus, and that value for money is being achieved.
The Office of the CIO provides assistance in the management and delivery of ICT projects, by delivering standardised procedures and templates, guidance on project management, and provides regular updates to Campus Development of the status of the ICT work programme.
Campus Development has agreed a process for the approval of ICT projects, and has set out the responsibilities and accountabilities of those individuals charged with delivery of approved projects. This is available in the approved charter below.
