The University has adopted a Strategic Information Technology (IT) and Asset Management Governance Framework to support the delivery of the strategic objectives of the NeW Directions Strategic Plan 2013 - 2015. The framework is administered by the Resources Division Governance Office.

The framework is led by two governing committees: the Strategic IT Governance Committee (SITC); and the Strategic Asset Management Committee (SAMC). Each Committee has advisory groups whose chairs are responsible for advising the Vice-Chancellor and the University Executive on IT and Asset Management strategy and its execution.
