Request for IT project proposals for 2014-15

The annual IT planning process for fiscal years 2014 and 2015 has begun and the Enterprise Systems Planning Group (ESPG) is now calling for IT project proposals.  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 4, 2013 using the 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 on using the IPP 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 an e-mail from Jay Dominick, Vice President for Information Technology and Chief Information Officer, about the current IT planning process.

The general schedule for the IT planning process runs from January to April.  Proposals are drafted by departments and OIT then collaborates with those departments to complete the more technical sections of the proposals.  The slate of projects is reviewed by the Project Managers Team (PMT) in March, endorsed by the Enterprise Systems Planning Group (ESPG) in April, and submitted to the Provost for final approval.

If you have questions about the annual IT planning process or need help preparing a project proposal, please contact Cathy Galloway at or Janet Pumo at
