Upcoming organizational changes (HR & Finance technical teams)

July 25, 2019

John recently shared additional updates with ITS staff regarding the Enterprise Applications organizational message published in June. In addition to changes already discussed, the following changes will take place in early September.

  • The technical teams supporting Human Resources (HRISS and HR Systems) will be combined and report to Ron Lipkins. Ron will become a dual report to HR and IT.
    Read the HR announcement.
  • The technical teams supporting Finance (FSS and Finance Systems) will be combined and report to Steve Gaudreau. Steve will becomere a dual report to Finance and IT.
    Read the Finance announcement.
  • As discussed in June, a new team called Application Platforms is also being formed, led by Darrell Cook. In this expanded role, Darrell’s team will focus on integration, architecture, and standards relevant to all application teams across our enterprise applications.
I believe most of you will see the direct connection of these changes to our IT strategic anchors. This change represents a significant opportunity to even more tightly align with the teams we support every day as well as make substantive progress on the standards and shared practices that are critical to our long term service quality goals.
Thank you to all who aided in this design and are embracing the opportunities presented by these changes.
