Project Proposal Submission and Prioritization

The Project Prioritization Process

Twice a year, the ITS Project Office issues a call for project proposals to the campus. All proposals submitted go through the ITS project prioritization process, which is the framework we use to select the projects that best support Humboldt's Strategic Plan and current priorities, and provide the greatest value to the campus.

Proposals are scored by the Project Prioritization Steering Committee using a scoring rubric designed specifically for this purpose. Based on those results and the availability of ITS staff resources, we prepare a proposed project schedule for the committee to include with their recommendations to the President’s Administrative Team.  Bear in mind that a high-scoring project may not be able to start immediately if funds or resources are not immediately available; conversely, a lower-scoring project may be able to start immediately because the necessary funds and/or resources are available.

The President's Administrative Team makes the final decision as to which projects will move forward, which need further work, and which will not be acted on at this time.

Submitting an ITS Project Proposal

To submit a new project proposal, you need to complete a Project Request Form. If you need assistance with the detailed form, please email the project office at for assistance.  

If your project includes implementing software that you intend to purchase, please refer to the Information Technology Acquisition Review (ITAR) page.
