  • 6. HEFCE Review of JISC
    JISC’s Centrality
    ‘There is a common view that [JISC] has played a pivotal role in the UK as an enabler of innovation and early and widespread adoption of ICT. Its shared services ... have become indispensible to the HE and FE sectors. It has done outstanding work to create and collect electronic content and resources, and in negotiating collective procurement on behalf of the sectors. There is no comparable body within the UK, and internationally its reputation is outstanding as a strategic leader and partner’ (Review Report, #3).

    JISC should be funded through a combination of grants and subscriptions/user charges
    It should become a separate legal entity and the implications of this for the constituent parts of JISC should be reviewed
    Governance arrangements should be clarified, to ensure clear overall strategic control
    The internal structure should be clarified and simplified
    There should be an overall funding strategy for ICT in the HE and FE sectors
