Appendix 1: ITS Analysis of Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats


NOTE: The Strategic Plan below is from 2013 and is only available here for reference. In the coming months, ITS will be working on a new strategic plan defining a vision for information technology services at the University of Idaho.

ITS conducted a thorough SWOT analysis, based on feedback from customers, employees and partners, in order to determine the strategic initiatives in this plan. The SWOT analysis was done individually by each of the units in ITS. Each unit felt that it had its own strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats but the following list, while occasionally contradictory with individual unit lists, represents a general consensus.
