ECUP Project Request


What is a project?

A project is a temporary, planned undertaking with a definitive beginning and end that follows guidelines and creates a unique product, service or result based upon specific, agreed-upon outcomes.

At ECU Physicians projects include, but are not limited to:

  • Software development
  • Application modifications
  • Server implementation
  • Network installation/configurations
  • Web development
  • Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software implementation

Projects go through a review process governed by ECU Physicians Project Office. The process involves an assessment of the feasibility, risk and complexity of the requested project. Requests are then categorized to ensure that complex, enterprise-level projects are planned, organized, documented, managed and completed in a timely manner while providing superior service to the university.
