IT Projects


The IT Services Project Office defines, implements, and delivers information technology services and solutions in support of Humboldt State University's goals and priorities. We apply proven project management principles and a common methodology across all activities to deliver projects on time and on budget.

IT projects are defined as tasks expected to take more than 20 person-hours and require two or more people to complete. Each project is reviewed by the Project Prioritization Steering Committee and assigned a slot in the ITS project schedule. As part of the office's ongoing efforts towards increased transparency, IT Services enables the HSU community to check the status of both proposed and scheduled projects at any time over a secure web connection.

While the Project Office does not purchase software on your behalf, we have prepared a set of guidelines to help you navigate the HSU software selection and acquisition process.

Additional Information

Learn more about how IT Services uses project management best practices to deliver customer satisfaction.

Tasks estimated to need fewer than 20 person-hours to complete are not categorized as projects; these are assigned directly to an ITS staff member for completion. You’ll be notified of this and the name and contact information for the assigned ITS staffer.

The ITS Project Office presents a Campus Model Superstar award to staff members who have gone the extra mile in their contribution to campus IT projects! Meet some of our past winners.

Accessing This Service

Here's how the project process gets started:

There's more information on the IT project request process on our Project Methodology page.

Using This Service

Once your task is designated a project and the project request form completed, the form is forwarded to the Project Prioritization Steering Committee for further review.

The committee scores the project according to a set of universally-applied criteria to determine its overall value to the University. This score, along with funding and resource availability, is used to schedule the project. The prioritized schedule is then evaluated by the Vice Presidents and adjusted as necessary. You'll then be notified of your project’s slot in the schedule and the name and contact information for your ITS lead.

To view the status of your and other ITS projects, check out the proposed projects and scheduled projects lists.
