The IT Help Desk will evaluate every request that is initiated.

The priority is assigned to a request depending upon:

  • Critical business systems
  • The Impact on the University: size, scope and complexity of the Incident
  • The Urgency to the University: time within which resolution is required

A lower priority will be assigned if a workaround exists.
