Requesting IT Projects

For unbudgeted IT projects or other spending, we are aligning with the annual budget planning process that takes place from September through January for each fiscal year.  Use the four steps below as a guideline for requesting unbudgeted funds for IT purchases or resources:

  1. Fill out a project request form with some basic information about your request.
  2. IT will contact you and co-develop a short two page business case for your request.
  3. The IT Steering Committee will review your request and others, and rank them by a number of criteria including support of Bentley's strategic goals and other benefits to the university.
  4. The Cabinet will review the prioritized list and approve funding for scheduled projects for the next fiscal year.

The flow diagram below provides some more detail on the process.
