Background and scope
The e-administration model governs how the University administers its digitalised operational support. The model is tailored to the University’s structures and rules of procedure, but originally stems from the previously implemented administrative model that was adopted in 2009.
The adjustments were implemented based on the survey that was conducted in autumn 2014 as part of the task “survey and analysis of IT systems administration at the University Administration”.
More information about the conclusions of the survey and the revised model can be found in “Report survey of administration of IT systems at UFV”.
The driving forces behind organising administration according to this joint model are that:
- IT services operate in a manner that benefits the University’s activities
- IT services and other elements of the University collaborate towards a common goal
- priorities are made from a holistic perspective
- the goals are realistic in regards to finances and resources
- the work is structured and orderly
The e-administration model has the prefix e- to denote that it refers to digitised operational support. It relates to the e-delegation’s definition of e-administration in that it deals with operational development facilitated by information and communication technology.
This first implementation includes the elements of the University that budget-wise are part of the University Administration.
The model only encompasses administration in the form of continuous basic maintenance and further development of existent IT support. All major projects involving development of the University’s core activities are funded and managed outside this model.
