The PTIC IT Development Fund

The Penn Technology Investment Committee (PTIC) has created a fund to encourage thoughtful experimentation with emerging technologies which have the possibility of contributing to the overall benefit of the university. The fund is designed to help launch new common good services (those that would benefit many or all schools and centers), particularly if the solution could save money, promote standards and interoperability across units or improve regulatory and policy compliance, without placing a burden on the initiating school or center.

PTIC Development fund proposals are first presented to Common Solutions Group for sponsorship, then to IT Roundtable for two-thirds majority vote approval. Final approval resides with the Office of the CIO.

Information about the proposal process and templates to be used for drafting the proposals may be found on PennBox.
