IT Prioritization - Think Spring!
Considering a change for Spring 2015 that includes technology? To ensure that IT resources are aligned with campus goals and delivered in an efficient and effective manner, certain projects are subject to the IT Prioritizations process.
Does my project require the ITP process?
To be considered an IT project, requests must meet one or more of the following criteria:
- Work requiring more than 24 hours (3 days of IT time)
- Cost greater than $5,000
- An existing project cost adjustment greater than 25 percent
- Work/impact broader than one campus department or equivalent unit
- Requires coordination across IT
- Involves standing up a new technology or expanding functionality of an existing solution
Routine upgrades to systems/software/technology are considered standard operating procedure and do not need to be submitted as an IT project.
By when do I need to submit my project request for Spring 2015?
Project Proposals for Spring 2015 are due to Mark Woolley (firstname.lastname@example.org) at the Project Management Center of Excellence (PMCOE) by September 11, 2014. The IT Administrative, Educational Technology, and Infrastructure advising committees will review submitted requests and make recommendations to the Executive Committee in October and early November. The Executive Committee will announce its decisions on November 17, 2014.
How do I get started?
Contact your department’s IT Support Liaison as early as possible to discuss the project, if you have not already done so. Your liaison is your partner for all IT-related changes, regardless of cost or size.
