Project Management

One of the outcomes of the external review of Information Technology Services (ITS) in the late fall of 2008 was the recommendation to improve the process by which IT projects are proposed, prioritized, approved, undertaken and managed. This section of the ITS website outlines the process that is now in place and serves as a reference for our clients on how to get a project proposal in the queue and ultimately approved for implementation.

There is also information on the Administrative Computing Advisory Group and a listing of the projects that have been completed, are currently in progress, and/or are in the "proposed stage".

For the purpose of our work, a project is defined as an activity with well-defined parameters, time-frames and objectives that are outside the scope of "everyday activity". Typically a "project" takes longer than three weeks to complete.

I welcome your comments and suggestions about this process and anything in this section of the ITS website.
