Policy Statement: 

All ITC/Applications and Data Services (ITC/ADS) systems development, enhancement and maintenance work is initiated by formal Work Requests submitted by users (this may also be in the form of an e-mail). No work can begin until the Work Request form has been completed and approved by appropriate user management, unless the request is a true emergency. All work request forms must be submitted to ITC/ADS.

Work request forms may be prepared by ITC/ADS, but the user remains responsible for ensuring the problem is accurately described. Requests must include a definition of problems to be overcome and objectives to be achieved. Desired results must be described as specifically and concisely as possible.
