Does your office require the assistance of OIT in implementing new software or hardware? When you have a change you want to make for your office that involves information technology in some way, you can get the Office of Information Technology (OIT) involved to make it happen. OIT tracks projects using a tool called TeamDynamix.
Requesting a Project
Prior to requesting OIT’s assistance with a project, consider factors such as:
- What are the costs involved, and where will the budget come from?
- Is staffing available within your department to implement and provide ongoing maintenance for the new solution?
- What existing systems would be involved (such as Banner)?
- What other offices would need to be involved, besides yours and OIT?
- What are the benefits of the new solution?
- Do you have AVP/Dean level of support for taking on this project?
- What is your time frame?
- All projects have risks--what risks are you aware of for your project?
After the project is entered into TeamDynamix, a score is generated, based on the project risks, PSU/OIT goal alignment, and other criteria such as security, compliance, revenue/enrollment benefits, etc. Note that this score is not the ONLY factor determining project approval and prioritization.
OIT will use this score to compare and contrast different project requests, helping us to become more consistent and fair with project approval and scheduling. You will be contacted with an approval/disapproval status, and if approved, time frame information.
