IT Project Management Office: When to request a project

Is it time to make a project request?

If any of these questions are confusing, you can always start the project request process by reaching out to the project team at

Questions to ask before making a formal project request:

Should I submit a ticket instead of making a request?

Is an existing technology system, service, or application broken or not working properly? If the answer is yes, you may want to start by submitting a ticket to the Help Desk. Typically, if an existing service isn't working properly, it won't require a project request.

Is there an existing form for my request?

Most technology services and requests already have forms within the Service Portal. Review this page that serves as a directory of existing request forms.

Is it a smaller request that probably doesn't meet the requirements of a full project request?

Smaller service requests often don't require a full project request. Do you need an enhancement to an existing service, system, or application? Is this a common request that you have made before? Are you pretty confident the request requires less than 50 hours of dedicated work? If yes to any of these, please submit a service request to specific group within Information Services.

Not sure what to do?
