This non-binding form is used to describe the general scope of work and to request an estimate for improvements to existing telecommunications facilities or to request services. Examples of such projects include departmental renovations, large scale moves, and non-standard service requests.

This form, along with the other project information, will be used to determine the project's telecommunications budget, its size, and scope. Be sure to include all unique aspects that will add to the project's cost. Failure to do so may result in understating the amount of funds needed to complete the project. Before any action will be taken, a signed copy of the form must be submitted to NI&S Customer Service at 1770 Forecast Drive, (0506) or faxed to 231-4800.

Your project may impact other campus departments such as Physical Plant, Capital Design and Construction, and Environmental Health and Safety Services. Please contact these departments individually to make them aware of your plans and to coordinate any activities between departments.
