A three-year Campus Information Technology Plan (CITP), which was released by a campus-wide IT committee charged by the President, is expected to generate cost savings of $5 million in the 2011 fiscal year, and recurring cost savings of at least $10 million by the end of the 2012 fiscal year. The plan also includes approaches to increase this savings to a recurring $15 million per year into the future. The comprehensive plan will involve all areas on the West Lafayette campus. The plan includes three main components:
* A new governance model for information technology on the West Lafayette campus.
* Approaches to generate $15 million annually in reduced costs or added revenue.
* Strategies to make IT responsive to the needs of all areas of the University.
The plan is the first campus-wide review of information technology since 2001 when the Office of the Vice President for Information Technology was formed. The review was part of the Sustaining New Synergies initiative.
