Project Request

Juniata College utilizes an IT Project Request Form to collect information about the scope and impact of a proposed technology initiative. (Click on the button below to download the request form.) The following information serves as a guideline for requesting IT projects:

  • General IT project requests are accepted and reviewed by a Technology Governance Committee twice a year: October and March.
  • It is highly recommended that you schedule time with a member of the CTS team in the development of your IT project request. To request assistance, please submit a work order.
  • IT project requests must be submitted using this form, and must be approved and submitted by the primary requestor's respective Vice President. If applicable, the respective VP must also identify the source(s) of funds and/or any additional staffing required to successfully implement and maintain the proposed project.
  • If you think your request would require less than 2 hours of IT staff time and doesn't cost any money, it is recommended that you submit a work order. Projects of this size and scope do not require the submission of an IT Project Request Form.
  • Completed IT Project Request Forms should be electronically submitted to ITGovernance@juniata.edu by the respective VP.

When reviewing and evaluating projects, the Technology Governance Committee (and if needed, SLT) will consider multiple factors. The availability of resources and the operational capacity of the functional area(s) to implement and maintain the proposed solution will also be considered.

Other factors considered include but are not limited to the following:

  • Impact on Elements of the Strategic Plan
  • Impact on Strategic Plans at the Department & Divisional Level
  • Projected Financial Benefits and/or Operational Efficiency Gains
  • Timeline for Implementation
  • Breadth and Depth of Projected Impact
  • Overall Value to the College
  • Consequences of Not Doing the Project
