Phase II Network Wiring Projects

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

In March 2001 a call went out to all departments asking them to identify critical network wiring needs. The forty-one projects totaling $3,540,000 that were submitted for consideration for Phase II Network Wiring Project funding represent a broader spectrum of campus; more control points were involved and more consideration of design was required. Most of the preliminary effort for this phase was to listen to our customer’s needs and develop a process for prioritizing the projects.

Once we had prioritized lists from each control point, we merged the prioritized lists into a single list and indicated which projects would be funded based on the funds that we had available at the time. This list was proposed and agreed to in our IT project proposal submitted to the ITPG in December 2001. The ITPG ranked this proposal highly, and the ITB later ranked the proposal highly in March 2002. We announced that the projects under scenario I were “funded” and then we began consultation to determine if there were any projects that had strict deadline requirements. We met with Communications Services staff to coordinate with any construction projects that may impact the projects. The twenty-two unfunded projects were slated to be rolled into the Phase III process.

Following is a summary of the milestones for each Phase II project, by department or building.
