About the IT Partnership Team

What is it?

A team of experienced IT resources, with one assigned to each School, who can serve as a point of contact to help to improve planning, guide clients to sustainable solutions, and provide a centralized point for communication between IT and each School.

The purpose of the IT Partnership Team is to move conversations with Schools from the basic task level up to the strategic level, and increase the engagement, oversight, and responsibility for making the best decisions for the School and for BCIT. Discussing current events, fixes, and challenges as a team with an eye toward continuous improvement should allow IT Services to improve and standardize solutions for all of BCIT while identifying key areas for improvement.

  • Reporting abnormal break/fix in academic spaces
  • Reporting patterns of failures
  • Escalating your ticket
  • Planning something new or different
