ITS Organisational Details

ITS delivers technology that underpins the University's 2020 strategic plan and digital strategy. We work in a matrix structure consisting of:

  • three value streams with end-to-end accountability for technology (Learning, Teaching and Research, Student Lifecycle, University Operations).
  • three groups that provide expertise and guidance on ICT strategy, security, operations and governance.

Leading the ITS team is RMIT’s Chief Information Officer (CIO), Paul Oppenheimer.

Working with the University:

Our Business Technology Partners (BTPs) and Senior Portfolio Managers (SPMs) are an important contact point for business stakeholders. BTPs provide an interface between ITS and the university portfolios and help steer the strategic planning and execution of initiatives for delivery. SPMs lead the delivery of an investment portfolio of projects, ensuring project delivery is optimised, well governed and contributing to the overall success of the portfolio. See the streams below for BTP and SPM details and contacts.
