I.T. STEERING COMMITTEE UPDATE (6 APRIL 2021)
Following the recommendation of Phase 1 of the IT Programme Strategy Review, the IT Steering Committee has been established as a committee of the BE Board with the stated aim “to ensure that all further work to develop and maintain the current IT systems, and consideration of any short-, medium- and long-term IT strategy, is carried out in an efficient and cost-effective manner in alignment with the strategic objectives of BE and to support the delivery of sport.”
The Committee is the body responsible for, among other things, overseeing progress to address the Critical issues and the other recommendations from Phase 1; change management; implementation of the IT roadmap once this is developed by the Task Force; and the relationship with Eventing Scores including transfer of waitlist and balloting functions.
The Committee is meeting every two weeks for the foreseeable future, with a primary focus on identifying critical issues, setting priorities and monitoring timeframes for completion of work and, where necessary, contingency plans in preparation for the start of the season. The Committee is also focused on ensuring that members are updated on changes in BE’s IT system, including information on the set-up of new events and programmes and any issues arising in their implementation.
