Taking care of the University’s core business software applications are is one of the key ITS responsibilities. In addition to providing system administration and development support, ITS ensures the security, maintenance and proper storage of all the data generated with these various systems.
ITS Infrastructure Cost Allocations
Starting in FY23, all university units and departments will receive an annual IT services cost allocation based on a percentage of their annual budget. This infrastructure cost allocation will support wired and wireless network, Internet, telephones, Microsoft O365 Productivity Suite, and ERP systems. This single charge replaces the former NBI (Network Base Infrastructure), Microsoft Campus Agreement, and ERP Cost Allocation charges.
Each year the UofL budget office will calculate the required amount of the allocation. The allocation may increase a small percentage each year depending on an analysis of the university’s cost for services, maintenance, equipment replacement, and upgrades.
University units and departments will implement their infrastructure cost allocation as part of the budget development process. Questions about this cost allocation should be directed to your unit business manager or the Lead Fiscal Officer (LFO) for your VP or Dean.
