At the Fall 2010 meeting of the CIO Council, several standing subcommittees were identified to advise the Vice Chancellor/CIO within the University System of Georgia. The full CIO Council membership approved the establishment of the standing subcommittees. All committees shall be reviewed annually for relevance of their charge and either perpetuated, amended, or terminated as needed. Chairs shall be selected annually, and Chairs will draft committee goals for the year, and report at quarterly CIO Council meetings on efforts and accomplishments. The Chairs will meet with the CIO Council Chair and the Vice Chancellor/CIO annually as they establish committee goals and as they close out the year so that respective committees remain aligned and productive.
In the event that a standing committee is not an ideal governance group for a specific need, any CIO Council member or the Vice Chancellor may present a request with written charge, composition, and term for a strategic committee to the Executive Committee. If approved, the Chair will send out request for members to the CIO Council if desired, or notify members of the committee composition. Otherwise, the request will be forwarded to an existing committee for consideration/response, and brought back to the next Executive meeting. Strategic committees shall be reviewed annually as described above.
