Information Management Requirements Submissions Process Graphic

What is a “requirement?”

A requirement is a functional or technical description of a need that a solution is to be designed to meet.

What is a “submission?”

A submission is any idea that fosters a change (addition, modification, or removal) to a capability, policy/process, or system. It is not a “trouble ticket” that identifies that a current function is not working properly. For additional guidance or questions, contact us

How is the submission processed?

The status of the submission will be communicated throughout the process. A tracking number and a point of contact will be provided and used to communicate the status of the submission throughout the process. Requests are screened for duplication and existing functionality, evaluated by management and either approved for implementation or returned to the end user with an explanation as to why the particular submission was or was not adopted.
