TeamDynamix: ITS Self-Service Portal - Approving a New Project Request - Data Stewards

This article has not been updated recently and may contain dated material.

All LSU A&M faculty and staff can request a new project using LSU’s software New Project Request process. This process will require the requestor to only complete one web-based form available from the ITS Customer Self-Service Portal that will cover the information needed for Data Steward, Security and IT review and approvals. The customer will be aided by an ITS PMO Account Representative throughout the request process.

To Review and Approve the data elements requested on a New Project request:

1. When a New Project request requiring Data Steward Approval is created, the appropriate Data Steward will receive an e-mail notification.
