Application Team Project Requests

Project Life Cycle:

  • All new request will be reviewed and assessed for general size, feasibility, and priority, but will remain in a Requested status until ITS and departmental resources are available to work on it. A project request may be withdrawn or converted to a service request if the project is not feasible or if it is determined to be small in scope.

  • Once ITS and departmental resources are available, the request becomes an Active Project with a status of Analysis. During this phase, any specific details (aka business requirements) are gathered. A project timeline and project plan may be devised, depending on the type of project and what research and testing is required.

  • When appropriate, a project plan is reviewed by ITS and the requestor. Once approved, by the project team the project status will be changed to In Process (aka Execution). The assigned IT staff will work with the requestor to complete the project in accordance with any project plan.

  • The final project phase is User Testing. In general projects are move to the User Testing phase once primary development is completed and the project is waiting final user acceptance testing before being moved to production. Note some large project may require an iterative project plan with multiple phases of development and user acceptance testing.
