The IT Governance process starts with an idea which you may need to refine through proposing or joining an existing working group. Once the idea is refined through this collaboration, it is put into a proposal:
- Working groups and Standing Committees review and refine the proposal (this is an iterative process).
- The IT Executive approves the process (if required).
- The proposal answers 3 questions: are you procuring services from a vendor, are you hiring, and do you require funding. Based on these answers, various activities take place to ensure security, privacy, funds, etc.
- The project starts (see the Next steps after approval wiki) and its project leads report its status regularly until the project is complete.
