ctcLink Project Governance

Moving ctcLink Forward

In February 2017, the Washington Association for Community and Technical Colleges Technology Committee (WACTC-Tech) began the process of reorganizing ctcLink project governance and oversight. 

The new structure was implemented in late April 2018 as WACTC-Tech handed off its previous role to the ctcLink Executive Leadership Team (cELC). WACTC-Tech worked with SBCTC and ctcLink project leadership to get the new governance groups up and running.

Governance Framework

Three ctcLink Governance Committees — ctcLink Executive Leadership Committee (cELC),  ctcLink Project Steering Committee, ctcLink Project Working Group — work together to guide and manage the ctcLink project, uphold the project's guiding principles and provide a consistent mechanism for policy decision-making with binding authority of all college presidents.

The governing body will provide project guidance through all phases of the ctcLink Project, including scope definition, review of high-impact global (system-wide) enhancement requests, and approval of risk mitigation strategies related to staying on schedule, in scope and within the project budget.

ctcLink Project Charter

The ctcLink Project Charter was revised October 2018 and outlines the project objectives, benefits, guiding principles and overall scope of the project. It also reflects the updated project methodology, approach, governance model, schedule, budget and staffing plan, as part of the re-planning and project restart efforts that began in late 2017 under the guidance of a new project director.

This Charter details the revised governance and decision-making structure and formally empowers the ctcLink Project Director to restart/continue the project. It gives the Project Director full authority to execute the project activities and oversee all aspects of the project including budget, staffing, schedule and deliverables, as well as managing the project to scope.
