Defining Integrated IT Governance

...the set of responsibilities and practices exercised by senior management of the enterprise designed to establish and communicate strategic direction, ensure realization of goals and objectives, mitigate risk, and verify that assigned resources are used in an effective and efficient manner.
--- IT Governance Institute (ITGI), 2003

ITGI is a research think tank that exists to be the leading reference on IT-enabled business systems governance for the global business community. ITGI publishes and maintains COBIT (Control Objectives for Information and related Technology). Versions 1, 2, and 3 of COBIT were published in 1996, 1998, and 2000 respectively.

Information and Technology Management

USDA already is required to approve any IT acquisition over $25K. Acquisition Approval Process
Is it…

Planning

Acquisition Request

Part of an approved investment? In line with USDA architecture?

Approved Acquisition Request

Detailed investment information allows us to answer these questions.

Procurement & Implementation

Information and Technology Management

IGP simply frontloads the information collection

Planning

Acquisition Approval Process
Is it…

Acquisition Request

Part of an approved investment? In line with USDA architecture?

Approved Acquisition Request

If we collect the information when we know it, the whole process will be easier, more efficient.
8

Procurement & Implementation

Information and Technology Management

When do we know the information?

Planning
Strategic approach Business case

Acquisition
Contract type Specific product & version Vendor

Implementation
Cost variance Schedule variance

Alternatives analysis Expected benefits Project schedule Acquisition plan Project costs

Estimated cost to complete

On well-planned projects, these get increasingly detailed and accurate as the project progresses.

These need to be specific by the time of the AAR

These monitor the implementation of each specific acquisition (contract) as well as the overall project.

Providing the IGP information is easy
Yes, there are 155 potential categories per system But we expect that the average system will only have 12 – 15 applicable categories Simply complete the applicable systems tab with the few applicable categories

Information and Technology Management

To Accomplish This, the IGP Team Will: 1. Use portfolio analysis (at both agency and USDA levels) to identify new IT investment opportunities) 2. Evaluate new IT requirements in light of
• USDA’s current infrastructure and target architecture—including standards for technology, privacy, security, etc.

•

What each agency’s mission requires.

3. Provide agency Heads, CIOs and CFOs with line of sight on IT investments from planning, through acquisition and implementation, and to ROI.

4. Make consistent use of IT rules, plans, standards, etc., easier
