Getting Started

A project request  may be submitted by any member of the Sierra College community in conjunction with a sponsoring project manager and support from the area VP or Director.

Step 1: Once the Project Request is submitted it will be reviewed by ITS. The project requestor may be asked to provide additional details. Once the project details are determined a copy of the project request will be routed through Adobe Sign for signature approval.

Step 2: The Project Request should be discussed and forwarded to the requestor’s functional area Manager -> Director-> VP to carry forward to their technical review Committee as necessary (i.e. the Student-Instruction Steering Committee, Ed Tech, HR Technology, or Administrative and Operations Council). 

Step 3: Once the Committee approves the Project Request Form it must be reviewed and approved by the functional area VP (or designee). This is the person that champions the effort and considered the Project Sponsor!.

Step 4: Once the VP/Director Designee has approved the Project Request Form it is submitted to ITS and then reviewed/approved by the CTO. The CTO may solicit recommendations and guidance from the ITS Technical Architecture Committee (TAC).

Step 5: Once approved, the signature page is attached to the project request in the Solution Center for review and prioritization by Team Leads.
