This work deals with IT governance integration in an information system (IS), since it's one of the main worries to maintain alignment between information technologies and business strategy. It uses COBIT as IT Governance framework saw its generic, and flexible appearance to produce a measurable picture of the current state of IS, through structured IT control activities. It appealed to Loose Inter-organizational Workflow, which refers to occasional cooperation, to resolve coordination problems between heterogeneous IS components. it proposes, afterwards, an organizational model, a collaboration diagram and a generic architecture for the solution. It gives finally an overview of our implementation limited for the moment to a mediator finding COBIT partners to IS Governance requests.
