I.T. STEERING COMMITTEE UPDATE
The IT Steering Committee has been established as a committee of the BE Board with the stated aim “to ensure that all further work to develop and maintain the current IT systems, and consideration of any short-, medium- and long-term IT strategy, is carried out in an efficient and cost-effective manner in alignment with the strategic objectives of BE and to support the delivery of sport.”
Following approval by the BE Board of the recommendations from Phase 2 of the IT Programme Strategy Review, the Committee is overseeing management’s implementation of a strategy to replace the IT system piece-by-piece with accredited third-party suppliers, with an interim project manager now in place. The Committee will continue to identify critical issues with the current system, setting priorities and monitoring timeframes for completion of work and, where necessary, contingency plans. The Committee meets regularly to receive reports from the IT User Group and BE’s IT team on issues identified by end-users.
