In 2010 we reported the results of our audit of Athabasca University’s information technology governance, strategic planning and project management systems that support business and technology objectives. We recommended that the university:
- improve governance of information technology
- improve IT portfolio and project management processes
- formalize IT project performance monitoring and reporting
- resolve inefficiencies in financial, human resources and payroll systems
Our follow-up audit confirmed the university implemented these four recommendations.
The university has effective IT governance policies, processes, standards and project management systems. Management is able to demonstrate that it is implementing its IT strategic plans cost effectively, and that they are achieving expected results and benefits.
