SSA Governance

The Self-service Analytics Program is a collaborative effort. Program management will be a shared responsibility across multiple organizations—governance groups, business areas and the SSA program team, which will be comprised of faculty and staff from IT, as well as other UCSF departments.

This SSA governance diagram illustrates how the different groups work together in support of the Program.
