Planning and Budgeting

ITS leads budget development and management for all technology investments through an annual process. The division takes direct responsibility for developing and managing operational budgets. Stakeholders are engaged in formulating annual capital requests supporting strategic initiatives.

The division is committed to maintaining a balance between the demands of the operational environment while outlining a reasonable path forward for investment in new directions. This balance is a key component of the ITS mission and a driving factor in the ITS approach to strategic planning and budgeting.

Efforts to transform the budget process beyond the legacy year-to-year focus to a longer-term perspective are underway. Recently implemented tools for service management are delivering insights on performance and resource requirements, allowing greater visibility on resource commitments, options and priorities.
