IT Services is comprised of 12 teams responsible for various parts of the services provision and facilities which IT Services supports for the benefit of all University staff and students.
These teams and their areas of responsibility are:
Staff provide a departmental administration function, departmental health and safety policy oversight, budget monitoring and control, ITS input to University publications, ITS publications, the ITS Newsletter etc.
The Research Support Service assists academic departments with IT interventions to assist in all areas of research. Assistance, advice and guidance can be given to academics who are submitting research grant bids and need to develop an IT plan for a project, and increasingly also need to complete the technical appendices of application forms. In addition to ensuring that the fine print is complied with we can ensure the best use of IT systems is considered before the project starts. Once a research project is given the green light we can co-ordinate any major infrastructure and system developments that may need to be made in the University to accommodate the needs of the project. We can also assist in scoping and managing any software development that may be necessary thus ensuring good development practice and ensuring compliance with funder requirements. Once the project is under way support can be offered on some of the more specialist systems that researchers need. The ITS Research Support Service builds on the helpdesk service we offer for all routine queries to handle the more bespoke requirements of research. We work closely with our colleagues in HPC Wales to deliver access to high performance computing systems as well as maintain some smaller systems within BANGOR for ad-hoc experimentation. Open Access Data and Open Access Publishing initiatives are currently causing much activity across the HE sector. The ITS Research Support Service works closely with other departments to ensure the University will be able to meet open access requirements and hence continue to successfully win research grant awards.
