The IAM Program is split into three individual governing committees: the IAM Executive Committee, Lifecycle Advisory Group, and Technical Oversight Committee. The following is a description of the responsibilities and objectives for each group:
IAM Executive Committee
The primary objective for the IAM Program Executive Committee is to provide consistent, timely and meaningful oversight for the Identity and Access Management Program. The IAM Program Executive Committee will identify and champion business process improvement, provide program oversight, and guide the strategy for the implementation and roll out. The Committee will meet on a monthly basis.
IAM Identity Lifecycle Committee
The mission of the IAM Identity Lifecycle Committee is to work towards improving the end-user experience at Harvard. This will be accomplished by bringing the collective and varied expertise of a representative set of campus business process owners to bear on topics related to the management of identity related processes and services.
The primary objective of the group is to contribute meaningful recommendations on process improvement and service offerings, and to serve as a catalyst for projects across the University that will improve on-boarding and the lifecycle of user experience through better systems, processes, education and raising awareness of process and policy.
The group will advise the product and practice management team of the Identity and Access Management Program, including endorsing recommendations to the IAM Executive Committee. The Committee will meet on a monthly basis.
IAM Technical Oversight Committee
The primary objective for the IAM Technical Oversight Committee is to provide consistent, timely and meaningful review of proposals of architecture and standards for the Identity and Access Management Program. The IAM Technical Oversight Committee will identify the need for technical solutions, architecture, and standards. When those have been developed, provide feedback as well as recommendation for adoption to the IAM Executive Committee. The Committee will meet on a monthly basis.
