To prescribe the procedure for acquiring cable/wiring installation.
Communications cabling or wiring for any reason or purpose, must be approved and coordinated by the Telecommunications section of ITSS. This is necessary to assure standardization, compliance with building and safety codes and economy of campus wiring of every kind.
3.1 Budget Unit submits a request for cabling to ITSS through the appropriate Customer or Telephone Services Representative (CSR/TSR). Telecommunications schedules a meeting with the requesting department to refine the requirements. Depending on the complexity of the request, Telecommunications will request a cost proposal from the Service Provider.
3.2 The CSR/TSR will meet with the requesting department to discuss options, review the cost proposal and finalize the request.
3.3 Once the department approves funding for the cabling request, requestor will issue a Departmental Request (DR) or Inter Departmental Request (IDR) or Telephone Work Order dependent upon the requirements of the Service Provider.
3.4 The servicing agency will notify the requesting department of the date the work is scheduled to be performed. Once completed, ITSS’s Telecommunications Coordinator, an authorized agent of the requesting department, and a representative of the servicing agency will conduct a walk through of the cabled area. If the work meets the standards set forth by ITSS, the work will be accepted and authorization for payment will be made.
3.5 Purchasing/Business Services Division issues the necessary purchase documents in accordance with the approved approach as directed, if outside contract or contractor is involved.
