OIT performs three major functions and they are:
Refers to the implementation of operational parameters for working units and individuals’ use of IT systems, architecture, and networks. What this means is that OIT enacts the rules about how the University’s information technology can be used and what it can/should be used for. This is part of the conventional IT security as well as the data assurance for which the OIT is also responsible.
Refers to the hardware components, the network, the circuitry, and all other equipment necessary to make an IT system function according to the established needs and system “size” of the University.
Is perhaps the most visible task performed by the OIT, and therefore what it is most commonly associated with within many of its “constituents’” minds. Functionality refers to creating and maintaining operational applications; developing, securing, and storing electronic data that belongs to the University; and assisting in the use of software and data management to all functional areas of the UL.
