Overview

Technology Services employs a comprehensive, standardized process for all changes that impact the production environment. This protocol ensures that changes are thoroughly reviewed prior to implementation, and that they are made efficiently and with a minimal amount of disruption to operations:

Initiation Phase

A Change Request is required to initiate the change management process. Detailed information about the nature, scope and requirements are provided in the Change Request.

Planning Phase

The change request is assessed to determine its priority, the required Level of Effort (LOE) and develop a change plan and backout plan. Stakeholders review the request to determine approval status.

Implementation Phase

Implementer(s) will execute and test the change in a sandbox environment prior to implementation in the production environment.

Completion

Stakeholders are notified of completion and the request is closed.
