Enterprise Support Organizational Design and Funding

Ohio State will need an institution-wide governance process and management team to support and enhance Workday and other Enterprise Project initiatives. The future enterprise support team will be accountable to the Enterprise Project Executive Sponsors and managed within the Office of the Chief Information Officer.

September 2019 Updates

The Enterprise Project leadership team focused on three key areas during Summer 2019. Below are updates for each of the priority areas:

  • Governance - A governance strategy for the future enterprise support team has been drafted and is in review with the Executive Sponsors. The proposed governance structure will include a small decision-making body comprised of business owners across the university and Wexner Medical Center. Next steps include determining governance group members, defining governance processes and commencing the governance processes.
  • Cost of Ownership - A cost analysis of current enterprise systems is being finalized, and next steps include finalizing future cost estimates after determining the size of the future enterprise support team.
  • Organizational Design - An organizational structure for the future enterprise support team has been drafted and is in review with the Executive Sponsors. Once approved, the structure will be communicated to the Enterprise Project governance groups, project team, and staff who currently support Ohio State’s PeopleSoft systems. Additional organizational transition information will be shared on this webpage.
