In order to ensure the smooth and reliable operation of the University network, NYU has delegated to Information Technology (NYU IT) the responsibility to manage and provision certain network resources for the University. These resources are collectively referred to as Network Infrastructure Resources. The list of these resources is detailed under "Specifications," below.
NYU IT may delegate responsibility for management of these resources as necessary.
NYU IT and any organizations that have such delegated responsibility will be obliged to meet, and be able to demonstrate compliance with, a set of technological and procedural measures to be maintained by NYU IT.
This policy defines the set of Network Infrastructure Resources that are provisioned to NYU as an organization and must be managed accordingly. It also describes scenarios in which an entity within the University may be delegated some responsibility for management of a subset of those resources and the associated obligations.
This policy applies to anyone who has direct or delegated responsibility for the management of Network Infrastructure Resources and any directly related systems, processes, or services.
Network Infrastructure Resources include, but are not limited to:
A school or department that wishes to have responsibility for managing any Network Infrastructure Resources must submit a request to the Office of the Vice President, Information Technology and Chief Information Officer for review. Requests must include a high-level business requirement for locally run network electronics or servers providing specialized network services, and must include a technical analysis demonstrating a gap in NYU IT's existing service which makes it impossible for NYU IT to meet the business requirement.
Delegations will be reviewed periodically to ensure they continue to meet the requirements set forth in this policy. Failure to meet these requirements may result in revocation of delegated privileges.
