Information Technology Scoping Team

In summer 2006, Chancellor Oblinger endorsed the recommendation that NC State create the position of Chief Information Officer (CIO). This individual will lead a unified information technology operation. The Chancellor charged Provost Nielsen and Vice Chancellor Leffler to coordinate a process to define the CIO role and responsibilities and to implement a national search for the CIO. The process includes (1) a scoping team that will outline the position's roles and responsibilities, (2) a national search culminating in hiring a CIO to begin on January 1, 2008, and (3) a one-year plan for the CIO to develop the specifics of the CIO function and to achieve full implementation by January 1, 2009.

The IT Scoping Team (ITST) will develop the broad outline for the new position. The ITST will review the range of current IT functions and organizations at NC State, review IT organizations at peer universities, and, based on that information and their personal experience and expertise, recommend principles to be used in the organization and management of NC State's IT enterprise.

The ITST will be chaired by Greg Jackson, Vice President and CIO at the University of Chicago. Other members are Jack McCredie, CIO Emeritus, UC-Berkeley (vice chair), Zachary D. Adams, undergraduate student (Senior); Kristin A. Antelman, Associate Director for the Digital Library; Samuel F. Averitt, Vice Provost for Information Technology; Dr. John M Blondin, Professor, Physics; Keith Boswell, Director of Technology, College of Engineering; Barbara L. Carroll, Associate Vice Chancellor for Human Resources; Dr. Kenneth Esbenshade, Associate Dean & Director of Academic Programs, CALS; Steve W. Keto, Associate Vice Chancellor for Resource Management & Information Systems; Dr. Tom K. Miller III, Vice Provost for Distance Education & Learning Technology (DELTA); and Robyn Render, Vice President for Information Resources and CIO, UNC System.

If you have comments or suggestions for the ITST, please contact consultants Greg Jackson and Jack McCredie at gregjack@listhost.uchicago.edu. Additional information will be posted here as the Information Technology Scoping Team moves through its work.
