IM&T Project Request Process
The FY17 IM&T project request process is now open. The project request process exists to help the University plan and prioritize major Information Management and Technology initiatives. Projects will be evaluated and accepted based on their alignment with the University's nine core plans. This process will run in parallel with the Facilities capital request process for FY17. You do not need to submit your project through both of these requests process. Please use this IM&T project process if your need is related to software purchase, development, or implementation. Please contact either Bret Naber or Kirk Leichliter for guidance on which request process to use. It is important that all project requests be submitted whether you have internal funding, potential donor funding, grant funding or are requesting central UNC funding, in order to evaluate projects as part of the overall planning process for the University. Additionally, this year we are asking that you include any future year projects that you may be considering.
The submission process will also be used to solicit Academic Software requests. Academic Software requests are funded through centralized funding to support instruction within labs and classrooms.
All Technology Project and Academic Software requests should be submitted by November 1, 2015. All requests will be assigned to a research project manager who will work with the requestor to confirm the project scope and prepare an estimate. Requests will also be reviewed to determine ongoing operational impact to the University. Project requests will then be prioritized, with final approval and funding articulated in the FY17 budget process next spring.
Please do not submit new project request for projects you have submitted in previous years. A research project manager will contact individuals who submited projects in previous years to determine if the project request shoudl be carried forward in the FY17 process.
A technology project is not a bug or issue, a request for a new keyboard or other equipment, or a request for technical assistance on our existing applications. These are maintenance requests and should always be requested through our Technical Support Center.
