The Georgia Tech data governance structure will assign and monitor accountabilities for Organizational Data to ensure proper use and handling. These accountabilities will be assigned to roles and committees listed in the Data Governance and Management Policy.
The Data Governance Committee is responsible for recommending policy, approving procedures, and providing guidance, direction, and support for data governance, management, security, and compliance efforts. This committee creates and maintains the governance structure and supports the defined roles, committees, and committee membership within the structure.
The Data Management Committee may be formed at a future date, either as a standing committee or one that is formed for targeted efforts. This committee will serve as a collective consciousness and intelligence for Organizational Data that span across Georgia Tech’s Data Domains. This committee will discover, research, and propose solutions for Institute-wide opportunities and issues related to Organizational Data.
The Data Domain and Technology Sub-Committees serve as a collective consciousness and intelligence for Organizational Data, business processes, service delivery, and Information System use within a Data Domain. These committees are responsible for decision making concerning substantive changes to Organizational Data and Information Systems within the Data Domain.
Georgia Tech’s technology governance structure works in close partnership with the data governance structure, providing a balanced focus between technology and data. Key stakeholders (e.g., CIO, CISO, Data Governance Officer) will have standing memberships across both structures to ensure consistent opportunities for collaboration.
