Request for IT project proposals for 2012-13

The annual IT planning process for fiscal years 2012 and 2013 has begun and the Enterprise Systems Planning Group (ESPG) is now calling for IT project proposals. This year, in addition to requesting proposals for enhancing central academic and administrative systems, OIT is asking departments to submit proposals for any projects that will require OIT resources, including departmental applications and websites. In this way, OIT resources can be better managed across all projects, regardless of their size.

Proposals should be submitted by Monday, February 7, 2010 using the new Interdepartmental Project Portfolio (IPP) SharePoint site. The IPP site provides a proposal form for creating and submitting your proposals online and a dashboard for tracking the progress of your proposals through the IPP 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 and click the “Begin work on a new proposal” link.

Department Managers and Office Heads have received e-mail from Betty Leydon about the current IT planning process.

Now in its tenth year, the ESPG assists in setting University-wide priorities for upgrading and enhancing our IT systems, and ensures current systems are effectively maintained and necessary system enhancements are completed.

If you have questions about the annual IT planning process or need help preparing a project proposal, please contact Barrie Sutton at or Nancy Costa at
