Assigning IT Resources to IT Projects
PurposeThe purpose of this policy is to clarify the assigning of IT resources to IT projects.
The policy of the Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO) is that all IT projects that require IT resources should be managed and assigned within TeamDynamix (TDX), as this is the application where official IT work is recorded. If IT resources need to be assigned work within other project management applications, permission must be given by the employee's supervisor.
The OCIO recognizes that other IT project management tools are available at UTRGV; however, in order to manage IT resources, it is imperative that they are managed within only one system. Managing IT resources within one system provides visibility to the IT workload to help ensure that resource work is distributed more evenly, leading to IT projects being completed on time.
