5.1 Implementation Measures and Responsibilities

Implementing this strategy calls for a whole range of measures. The initial measures required for each of the strategic goals are outlined in an Appendix to this document. These show which specific steps are to be initiated in order to achieve the goals. The organizational unit that holds chief responsibility for implementing the individual measures is specified.

The Executive Board determines the organization to be put in charge of coordinating the implementation of the institutional ICT Strategy and of promoting innovative infrastructure projects. The IT Committee and the Advisory Board of ETH World are to be merged to form a new ICT Committee, and this committee will supervise the implementing organization.

5.2 Finance

Costs will be incurred through the implementation of the strategy. These can only be assessed reliably in the detailed implementation planning. A number of measures will lead to savings in the medium or long term, however. These are expected to relate to organizational issues, in particular, and must be taken into consideration in the detailed planning. This planning must also make allowance for the fact that the cost savings will not always be made at those points at which the implementation costs are incurred.

A separate financial plan is to be drawn up for the implementation work. The funding will be taken from the budget of the organization responsible for implementing the strategy or from the budgets of the units concerned, and must thus be included in these respective budgets. Not only the project costs must be taken into consideration but also the operating costs.
