The University of Colorado Boulder has established IT governance and advisory structures that guide the technology and data assets of the campus. The VC for IT and CIO fosters consistent engagement and dialogue between key stakeholders across campus–faculty, students and staff as well as executive leadership. The OIT Cabinet interacts with existing campus-wide governance and advisory committees comprising the academic and research interests of the campus to develop strategic IT direction and prioritized projects within the OIT project portfolio.

In addition to existing campuswide governance committees, specific IT governance groups include:
