How To Allocate And Charge Back Your Business Tech Expenses Without Screwing Up

The Right And Wrong Ways To Assign MOOSE Tech Costs To The Business

July 14, 2015


Why Read This Report

Reasonable and responsible spending on enterprise technology increasingly requires rational cost allocation schemes, and the shift toward the business technology (BT) agenda for winning, serving, and retaining customers accentuates this need. Allocation of new project costs is relatively straightforward, but allocation and potential chargeback of tech MOOSE (or non-project spending) are more challenging for CIOs. Get cost allocation right, and you can provide business leaders with insight into the tech spending that runs their business activities and the ability to influence its magnitude and direction at low cost. Get it wrong, and you face unending disputes about the fairness of allocations, devious moves to try to reduce chargebacks, and skyrocketing costs of measuring business usage of tech resources. This report will help you get it right.
