Institutional structure The

 

.  Introduction:1

     The institutional structure is an important part of the provision of any private or public service, and to maintain and develop its work accurately in a continuous way.

     The institutional structure of Saudi Arabia and its government departments in general and King Faisal University in particular has been taken care of. Based on the directions of the Deanship of Information Technology at King Faisal University for the management, maintenance, contracting and follow-up of the projects emanating from it according to approved international methodologies and ensuring its success, the Office of Institutional Structure was established in the Deanship of Information Technology at King Faisal University.

     This document aims to identify the institutional and methodological evidence used by the university as well as the definition of the institutional structure office and to clarify the procedures used in the management of the institutional structure of the university.


:  The Definition of institutional evidence:2

     According to the e-government program, the institutional structure can be defined in a simplified manner as follows :

  The institutional structure is the practices and controls that apply the vision and strategy of the government by making the necessary changes to align the business objectives and actions of the entity with the information technology (applications, data, and technology infrastructure) used to achieve this vision.   

     Within the framework of cooperation with the e-transactions program, "Yesr", King Faisal University has implemented the transformation plan to document the institutional structure of business, applications, data and technology as a first step in the continuous development and updating of the institutional evidence of the university. 

 King Faisal University aims to achieve a high level of maturity in all aspects of the institutional structure.

A special office for the institutional structure, whose functions are to be defined later, was established.


Methodology of institutional structure at the university:3

     As part of the development of its technological and technical staff, King Faisal University through training or polarization has developed the capabilities of the Institutional Evidence Team on a global methodology in the development of institutional structure.

     In this context, King Faisal University trained the team on the TOGAF methodology of the institutional structure. The team also reviewed the NORRA (National Overall Reference Architecture) methodology. The NORA methodology was adopted as the framework of the institutional structure at King Faisal University.

   : The electronic trading program is facilitated by NORA as follows

     The development of YESOR is part of the program's efforts in line with the objectives of Vision 2030 for the government sector. The methodology works to assist government agencies in developing the institutional structure in a convenient manner and in stages and steps to ensure good governance in implementation and compatibility with the governmental work.

The aim is to adopt the National Institutional Structure (NORA) methodology.

        . Determining the scope and requirements of the institutional structure in government agencies *

        . Helping government agencies to implement the institutional structure smoothly and efficiently*

         Ensure the efficiency and quality of the institutional structure and its outputs in the government body through consistent processes and recommendations.

         To align the direction and objectives of the institutional structure of the government with the national institutional structure and national operational plans to support the government's approach towards digital transformation more comprehensively.

          - Facilitate the use of the institutional structure and enhance awareness and capacity building in government agencies.

: The NORRA methodology is characterized by the following methodologies

        - It was built as a guide to building and developing the institutional structure to suit the needs and aspirations of government agencies.

- All phases of the institutional structure lifecycle were described in detail with examples and illustrative examples of outputs at all stages to help government agencies for better understanding..

A balanced approach to building an institutional structure that focuses on both actions and building the required outputs.

Flexible and customizable to suit different requirements and needs of government agencies
