What is a Project?

A project is a temporary, planned undertaking with a definitive beginning and end that follows guidelines and creates a unique product, service or result based upon specific, agreed-upon outcomes.

At Fayetteville State University, projects include but are not limited to:

    Software Installation
    Classroom Technology
    Network installation/configuration
    Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software implementations

Projects go through a review process governed by Information Technology Services (ITS). The process involves an assessment of the feasibility, risk and complexity of the requested project. Requests are then categorized to ensure that complex, enterprise-level IT projects are planned, organized, documented, managed and completed in a timely manner while providing superior service to the university. 

ITS prioritizes projects each quarter based on the following schedule:
