Project Prioritization Guidelines

  • Process overview:
    • The Project Prioritization Working Group has representatives from the SIS Implementation Team, Academic and Administrative Offices.  The purpose of the group is to review, consolidate and then prioritize projects.
    • The top tier projects are further categorized in terms of “scope” and complexity/difficulty.”  The technical staff, with input from the project requestors, is responsible for this process.
    • The representatives again review the prioritized list.
    • The prioritized list is sent to the Enterprise Executive Committee (EEC) for approval.  The EEC may add/delete/change projects and/or reorder priorities.
    • The EEC and the Implementation Teams review the status of the top tier projects monthly and reprioritize as needed.
    • The EEC has the authority to add, delete, or change project priorities at any time.
  • Guidelines for prioritizing projects: 
    • Is the project aligned with the University’s mission, vision, and strategic directions?
    • Does the project make existing processes or procedures more efficient?
      (There should be identifiable cost savings in dollars and/or human effort.)
    • Does the project make existing processes or procedures more effective?
      (Better results are achieved by the improved process or procedure.)
    • Does the project improve/enhance or protect the University's mission, vision, or strategic directions?
    • Is the project needed to avoid or protect the University from a potentially serious financial or legal situation?
  • Guidelines for determining resources, scope, and complexity/difficulty of projects:
    • Scope
      • Large - Projects that take several months to complete.
      • Medium - Projects that take several weeks to complete.
      • Small - Projects that take several days to complete.
      • Minimal - Projects that take several hours to complete. When an individual believes that an existing program or procedure requires a minimal modification, s/he should contact a senior programmer/analyst. The analyst can quickly determine if a modification can be made immediately. If the request is more involved, the individual will be asked to send a request to a member of the Project Prioritization Working Group.
    • Complexity/difficulty
      • Exceedingly complex to develop and/or maintain - Not usually recommended.
      • Moderate complexity - complicating aspects of the project often surface during the detailed analysis and development phases of these projects.
      • Low complexity - rarely are complicating factors discovered in the development of these projects.
    • Resources
      • Financial
      • Human
      • Infrastructure (Existing hardware, software, or other resources)
  • Membership: Academic Department Program Assistant Representative, Admissions, Advancement, Advising, Budget Office, Financial Aid, Graduate Studies, Human Resources, Provost Office, Registrar, Shared Financials, Student Affairs, Student Financials
