ZIMT Board of Advisors


The ZIMT Board of Advisors has been commissioned by the Senate (see section 3 of the Charter) and provides critical, crucial and constructive advice to ZIMT. It therefore in not a decision-making body, but rather makes consensual recommendations not only to ZIMT, but on budget matters also to ZHP and, if required even to the University Board.

In its capacity as (CIO) Board, one of the main tasks of the ZIMT Board of Advisors is to (continue to) develop a road map for the medium and long term planning for ZIMT for the next 5 years. In the course of this, the Board of Advisors provides support with the strategic planning and prepares the resolutions of the decision-making committees, but also helps to synchronize the planning with the university's decisions and goals.

A further task of the Board of Advisors is to analyze the draft budget and to provide intensive advice on the plausibility of the budget - with regard to the road map and in reference to the total resources available to the university.

In cooperation with ZIMT's management, the Board of Advisors works defines and sets out ZIMT's range of services. Such considerations are always connected with an analysis of the resources and their control by ZIMT's management.

A key function of the Board of Advisors is to communicate developments both from the University to ZIMT and vice versa - in the interest of a transparent communication.
