Registered as a society in the year 2006 and the transformation from an institute to being established as a university in the year 2014, the International Institute of Information Technology (IIIT), Bhubaneswar owes its origins to the Government of Odisha, as a result of the persistent efforts of the government to create a world-class institute in the state. There is a huge misconception that IIIT comes under the Government’s PPP promotion but that is not true and is fully owned by the Government of Odisha and is controlled by the Information Technology department. This institute receives its funds for infrastructure development from the government but it has to earn its revenue expenditure by itself. This is the type of system followed by all the state government-owned IIITs in Bangalore, Delhi, and Hyderabad. Due to the IIIT Bhubaneswar Act, the institute is able to enjoy financial, academic, and administrative powers.

The Governance structure in the Institute is modeled following the IITs. The Chancellor of the Institute is also the Governor of the state. Odisha Legislative Assembly, Government of Odisha, Leaders from the IT industry and Eminent educationists are all members of the Board of Governors. Currently, the Chief Secretary of the Government of Odisha is the Chairman of the Institute. The Director works in the capacity of Executive Head of the Institute. The Registrar, the Deans, the Controller of Examinations, and the Comptroller of Finance all assist the Director in the everyday management of the university.
