ITS Project Management at NAU
The Information Technology Services (ITS) Project and Portfolio Management Office (PMO) was developed to improve NAU’s ability to deliver technology solutions within budget and on schedule, supporting the mission of the university.
ITS submits projects to the Strategic Project Review and Resource Committee for review and approval. ITS employees who need to submit a project to the committee can use the Project Request form.
Strategic Project Review and Resource Committee
The Strategic Project Review and Resource Committee (SPRRC) is made up of representatives from each major unit on campus and they review all new project requests. The process and committee seek to bring visibility to new project requests both within each unit and across campus. By reviewing all requests for work and prioritizing them against approved metrics, all units can better plan resources and workload. Information about SPRRC is currently added to the ITS site while a new SPRRC site is built.
Projects are reviewed and approved on a quarterly cycle. Requests for each quarter must be submitted to the committee to be reviewed a month before quarter end. Project submissions are then reviewed by SPRRC and given a priority. Work is assigned based on priority and resource availability.
