Technology Projects

Gallaudet Technology Services (GTS) is committed to keeping the campus community up to date on the status of ongoing technology projects. Here you can review the status of active or proposed projects. GTS collaborates with clients in academic, operations, and administration units across the campus to determine the scope and budgets of projects, define resources and schedules, and manage the delivery of work and products. New projects must be submitted using the Technology Project Request Form and are subject to review and approval. Please allow 6 to 8 weeks of lead time for the review process.

GTS uses the design, build, and run model for each project:

Three progressively smaller interconnected blue arrows. Top and largest one says Design, Mid arrow says Build, smallest and last arrow says Run.
  • Design: project assessment, scope and resource definition, and project planning
  • Build: implementation, documentation, operationalization, and delivery of product
  • Run: ongoing maintenance, upgrades, support, and training

FAQ:

    GTS is responsible for day-to-day operations (data/network security, helpdesk/technology service and training/learning service). Project requests are to help GTS identify, determine feasibility (based on resource availability), prioritize, and balance scheduling of tasks for GTS staff and the Gallaudet community (university and Clerc Center).

    For GTS, a project is any technology task that is expected to take 30 or more hours of GTS staff (two or more people) to complete.

    A task is a simple job that doesn't require more than one person and has no effect on any other tasks in process. A project usually requires more GTS resources (several people and more hours of activities such as: teamwork, development, testing, implementation and maintenance).
