The CSUSM ATI team adopted the CSU approved framework to assess Information and Communication Technology (ICT) acquisitions. The intent of this impact assessment framework is to promote a consistent approach to assessing high, medium or low impact on ICT products/services for an individual user or the campus population to perform their tasks. This framework will also determine if an Equally Effective Alternate Access Plan (EEAAP) is needed to supplement the ICT acquisition.
The ATI Impact Assessment involves a 3-step approach:
Complete the ITR form which will prompt you for a variety of information that will help IITS gauge the Impact and Probability sections below.
Several factors contribute to assessing the impact of ICT products or service(s) acquisitions. Each of these factors are outlined below; along with sample questions for gauging the relevance of those factors.
First, determine a Risk Level (high/medium/low) for each of the Impact and Probability factors.
Next, assign an overall Risk Level (high/medium/low) that incorporates both Impact and Probability levels. The Overall Risk Assessment chart below illustrates the following points:
First, complete the questions provided below:
Next, determine your campus Capacity Level by assessing the sufficiency of available resources. Select a Capacity Level that most closely corresponds to the answers to the questions above. A description of the 3 possible Capacity Levels is provided in the table below.
|High||Institution has sufficient resources (knowledge, tools, and funds) to address all issues|
|Medium||Institution has sufficient resources (knowledge, tools, and funds) to address some of the issues|
|Low||Institution has sufficient resources (knowledge, tools, and funds) to address few (or none) of the issues|
If the Capacity Level is determined to be a High or Medium level, then an Equally Effective Alternate Access Plan (EEAAP) shall be required before Purchasing approves the ICT acquisition.
If a product is verified as low impact by the ATI team, it will be excluded from further ATI review.
