Process To Submit Projects to OTS

Have an IT project that you need help with? The Project Management Office (PMO) is here to help! To get started, a request must be entered into the PMO workspace within Footprints. For details regarding how to enter a request please click here.
Next, starting in mid-October 2020, someone from the PMO will reach out to the individual departments/divisions to discuss the priority of all project request(s) that have been submitted. Please remember only project requests submitted via the PMO workspace within Footprints will be considered for the next upcoming rotation. If you have already submitted a request in the past for a project that was not selected for the current rotation (Rotation 2, 2020), you will be contacted to determine if the project is still relevant and if you would like it to be considered for the upcoming rotation.
After all projects have been prioritized based on the department’s needs, they will be submitted to our Stakeholders Committee for rating, using a weighted method based on defined criteria. An average weighted score, per project, will be automatically calculated based on all ratings that were given. A completed and finalized Weighted Scoring Sheet will be presented to the Provost and CIO for project selection.
The next round of projects will begin January 4, 2021 and end May 31, 2021. If you have a project you would like to be considered for the next upcoming rotation (Rotation 1, 2021), please be sure to enter all requests to the PMO Workspace within Footprints by Friday, October 9, 2020. For additional information regarding the PMO and how we may be of assistance, please visit our web page.
