Requests for Change

The Office of Technology Services responds to Requests for Change submitted by the CHS faculty, staff, and/or students as quickly as possible.  However, consideration will be given to business needs of the College of Health Sciences and the availability of OTS staff and resources.  Time frames cannot usually be guaranteed for Requests for Change.

In most cases, Incidents will be given priority over Requests for Change.

End-User Support and Equipment Reservations

End-User support will be subject to the same response time guidelines as Requests for Change.  Equipment reservations, when made with proper notice, will be scheduled with delivery of services at the time and date requested.
