The annual IT planning process has begun and the Enterprise Systems Planning Group (ESPG) is now calling for IT project proposals. This planning process helps ensure that we effectively maintain our current academic and administrative information technology systems and, at the same time, plan for any needed enhancements to these systems. We are initiating the planning cycle for FY15 and are requesting that any proposals for new projects be submitted by Monday, February 3, 2014.
During this annual planning process, we look forward to working with you to identify areas where technology can enable efficiencies and improve service at Princeton. In this way, we can better manage OIT resources across all projects.
Princeton’s new financial systems (PRIME) are scheduled to go live July 1, 2014. We anticipate that there will be significant work during the initial shake-out period. When proposing new initiatives for this timeframe, I encourage you to consult with OIT or Finance and Treasury about the potential demands that might be placed on your staff related to the implementation of PRIME and its related systems.
All proposals are submitted through Princeton’s Interdepartmental Project Portfolio (IPP) SharePoint site. This site includes a form for submitting your proposal online and a portal to enable you to track the progress of your proposals through the planning process. Here you will also find helpful links to a Quick Reference Card and information about the University’s IT Governance and annual IT planning process.
To access the online proposal form, go to www.princeton.edu/ipp and click the “Begin work on a new proposal” link.
Department Managers and Office Heads have received an e-mail from Jay Dominick, Vice President for Information Technology and Chief Information Officer, about the current IT planning process.
