Purpose [top]

To provide for an order of succession for the Vice President for Technology & Communication, and other T&C leadership positions, in his absence.

Background [top]

Many T&C business processes require the approval or other input of the Vice President for Technology & Communication (VP T&C). In the absence of the VP T&C, this Business Practice describes the order of succession for the VP T&C. Additionally, business continuity requires that a clear leader be designated for each T&C group in the absence of their normal leadership.

VP T&C Order of Succession

When the VP T&C anticipates being sick, vacationing or otherwise incapacitated or unavailable for the performance of his or her duties, the VP T&C shall designate another member of the T&C Leadership as the administrator-in-charge. The VP T&C shall transmit a designation message to the division leadership and the president’s office via e-mail.

When the VP T&C is temporarily incapacitated or otherwise unavailable for the performance of his or her duties due to unforeseen circumstances, the duties of administrator-in-charge shall devolve upon the members of T&C Leadership in the following order:

  1. Director of Application Services
  2. Director of Communication & Marketing
  3. Director of IT Strategy
  4. Director of Academic Technology
  5. Manager of Infrastructure Services.
  6. Manager of User Services

The administrator-in-charge will transmit an assumption-of-duties message to the division leadership and the president’s office via e-mail.

The designated administrator-in-charge will perform the management functions of the VP T&C until the VP T&C returns to duty.

T&C Leadership Order of Succession

Each T&C manager who anticipates an absence from work longer than three working days must designate a member of their group to act as interim coordinator of that group. The manager shall transmit a designation message to the division leadership via e-mail. This team member shall perform any organizational functions required by T&C Business Practices and coordinate the day-to-day operations of that manager’s group.
