About IT Services:  IT Services Portfolio Governance

IT Portfolio Governance, provides facilitation and support to management decision-makers to ensure that the right projects are undertaken at the right time with the right resources in place and thereby maximising the successful delivery of an achievable IT Services Portfolio Plan. This is determined by managing the key functions of:

  • management control, 
  • value (benefits) management, 
  • financial and risk management,
  • stakeholder engagement
  • organisational governance, and
  • resource management. 

IT Portfolio Governance gathers information and reports on these key functions to support timely decision making, thereby ensuring optimal use of resources to deliver outputs that provide value to UC.

In addition, IT Services Portfolio Governance assists decision makers in prioritising initiatives and projects in alignment with IT Services and UC objectives to ensure that resources, particularly constrained resources, are assigned appropriately to support the successful delivery of the Portfolio Plan.
