Systemwide Architecture Committee (SAC)

Purpose 

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

  • services

  • best practices / standards

  • data governance

  • accessibility

  • information security

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. 

Authority 

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.
