IT Project Request
All IT project requests must be submitted by way of the IT Project Request Form
Project request intake, processing and approval
- IT project manager will research all project requests received via the IT Project Request Form
- Researched information is sent back to the requester for approval
- As researched approvals are received, the IT project manager will meet with the Director of Information Technology to determine the feasibility of each project request
- The IT project manager will write an executive summary for each project based on the research and feasibility information
- All requests are sent to the Director of Information Technology (D-IT) and the Chief Information Officer (CIO). They will use a rubric to assess these project requests. The 10 project requests that score the highest will be brought to the IT Strategic Planning Committee (ITSP) for consideration.
Project selection and prioritization
- The ITSP will meet to review project requests selected by the CIO and D-IT. They may also choose to include approved project requests that were not part of the CIO/D-IT’s initial list.
- The ITSP will select the top 5 projects using a scoring rubric and prioritize them each year by the 1st Monday of April. This will then allow time to request funding for the next fiscal year.
- The top 3 requests with the highest ranking scores will become projects managed by the IT project manager.
- Project requests ranked 4 and 5 will be placed on a contingency list. Their completion will depend on the availability of time and resources. Those projects not selected during the request cycle may be submitted again the following year.
