Technology Projects

A technology project is defined as an activity undertaken to acquire, develop, enhance, or repair functional capabilities or services using IT components (software, hardware, or both) requiring a significant level of effort to meet objectives. A significant level of effort is defined as encompassing more than 40 hours of labor or cost more than $5,000 to complete.

ETS manages two types of technology projects:

  • Infrastructure Projects supports foundational elements of technology infrastructure necessary for operating essential services such as those provided by the network (local area networks, wireless networks), administrative systems (Banner), communication systems (email, telephone), etc.

  • User Requested Projects requested by functional or academic departments and may involve specialized applications / hardware to support academic and administrative functions

Once your project has been submitted it will be evaluated upon the following criteria: Technology Project Approval (download), and then assigned to the appropriate ETS team

If you want to submit a request but are unsure if your request will be categorized as a project:

  • Refer to the table ETS Support for Non-Project Requests which explains the different types of requests for technology assistance serviced by ETS, or

  • Submit your request to ETS at: ITProject@fhda.edu, for evaluation and submission to the proper ETS team for processing.

Prioritization Process

The needs for infrastructure development together with requests for new projects exceed the available resources. To manage resources efficiently and to ensure that important projects are accomplished, Educational Technology Services (ETS) manages a prioritization process to solicit guidance from the colleges and establish project priorities for user requested projects. This Website provides the information necessary to implement this prioritization process.

Requestors should communicate their needs for IT projects (including those identified in grant proposals) as soon as possible to ensure that their projects are considered in the prioritization process in a timely fashion.
