********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group discussion list can be found at http://www.educause.edu/discuss.
We are going through wholesale change here at Piedmont Technical. Aside from the numerous improvements within ITS services and support, there has been several governance committees that we have put in place. One that is being discussed is a Reporting Oversight Committee, its purpose unknown at this time. We have a centralized reporting model, with very limited report creation outside of ITS. IT probably doesn’t matter, however we use Argos as our primary reporting platform.
I am wondering how many of you use a committee for reporting oversight and how many of you treat reporting as a service and have it fall under a broader oversight committee, such as an IT advisory or operations committee? One of the things we find ourselves up against is that the same people are always on these committees, and committees grow in number and we continue to consume people’s time in meetings and with tasks assigned to them. Considering this, I want to make sure that we add value rather than oversight for oversights sake.
Again, I would like to hear from everyone, whether they have a reporting oversight committee specifically or if they don’t. If you could let me know the size of your faculty and staff population it would be greatly appreciated.
I am sorry to be asking so many question over the past couple of months, however as we move forward transforming this institution, I do value your opinions and advice.

"It is not the critic who counts; the credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena. Who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short time and time again; and who, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly. His place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt
