Prioritisation Within IT Budget

Implement a decision-making process to prioritise the allocation of IT resources for operations, projects and maintenance to maximise IT’s contribution to optimising the return on the enterprise’s portfolio of IT-enabled investment programmes and other IT services and assets.

Value Drivers

  • Priorities that reflect IT goals and requirements of the business and are transparent to all stakeholders
  • Focused use of resources
  • Appropriate decision making, balancing cost, continuous improvement, quality and readiness for the future
  Risk Drivers
  • Inefficient resource management
  • Inability to optimise goals and objectives
  • Confusion, demotivation and loss of agility due to unclear priorities
  • IT budget not in line with the IT strategy and investment decisions

Hide Control Practices  help

  1. Create a process and establish a decision-making body for the prioritisation of IT initiatives and related resources within the high-level budget envelopes for IT-enabled investment programmes, IT services and IT assets as established by the strategic and tactical plans and maintained by portfolio decisions.
  2. Create and use procedures to rank all IT initiatives within portfolios based on the business cases and strategic and tactical plans, and establish procedures to determine budget allocations and cut-off based on the envelopes received. Establish the procedure to communicate budget decisions and review them with the detailed IT budget holders.
  3. Identify, communicate and resolve significant impacts of budget decisions on business cases, portfolios and strategy plans, e.g., when budgets are not aligned with strategic objectives or when budget allocations significantly impact the business case objectives.
  4. Obtain ratification from the executive committee for the overall IT budget changes that negatively impact the entity’s strategic or tactical plans and suggested actions to resolve these impacts.
