SAC operates as a working group that provides technical expertise to inform the development and growth of system-wide information technology infrastructure. The system-wide IT infrastructure consists of those elements of technology that are made available centrally and implemented locally including:
hardware / software systems
best practices / standards
Broad objectives for the systemwide IT infrastructure are to:
facilitate equitable student access to the community college system,
enhance collaboration systemwide and with other segments of the California education system, and
provide centrally available services in a cost-effective manner with a focus on interoperability and enterprise architecture.
SAC is a sub-committee of the Telecommunications and Technology Advisory Committee (TTAC) that works in close coordination with TTAC to develop strategic plans, policies, implementation strategies, practices, and standards regarding the system-wide implementation of IT infrastructure. The SAC (through TTAC) may also provide recommendations to the California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office (CCCCO) upon request.
