Executive Sponsor The website executive sponsor authorizes the creation and continued existence
of a website. Sponsors are generally faculty or staff responsible for running departments,
staff offices, and/or projects.
For hosted websites service the executive sponsor would be the department chair. From
staff offices the senior office administrator would be the executive sponsor. For specific
programs and projects the principle investigator would be the executive sponsor.
Executive sponsors will be contacted as often as yearly to confirm that the website
continues to be officially authorized.
Service Level Agreement (SLA) The SLA services as an agreement that documents the level of service to be provided by ITS
as well as documenting the intention of the sponsor to provide adequate resources to ensure
that the service is adequately supported.
