IT Project Request

The project request form is used to initiate the planning process for campus IT projects. 

Requests are routed for approval by either the submitting Department Director or the Division VP. Once approved, the Project Intake Request Team coordinates with the requester about next steps.

What requests should be submitted through the IT Project Request form?

Use this form to request initiation of both Projects and Operational Tasks, as described below. If your request does not meet the criteria listed below, use the IT General Help Request form
