• ITS Grant Writing Impacting Technology

    • Are you writing a grant and need to know the technology requirements?
    • Do you need to create a new lab?
    • Are you hiring a new staff member or creating new office space?
    • Wanting a new service application to be developed?


    Almost everything we do today requires planning technology of some kind. If you are planning for future technology directions within your department or campus by writing grants for additional funding which may include technology products, please include the ITS Management Team, Facilities Management, and the Contracts and Grants office in your early planning. We can provide consultation and guidance for those early decisions which will enhance the procurement, installation and support of those technologies down the road.

    Much work has been done to ensure a safe, supportable and reliable computing environment at CCAC. The Information Technology Services Department provides expertise in the following areas:

    • Pre-planning Steps & Equipment Standards
    • Contact the ITS Field Operations Directors, who can best assist you in your planning process. We will work to collaborate and discuss any technology requirements in your grant before you submit proposals, purchase equipment, or make plans for renovations.
    • We will assist in the review of hardware and software standards and help you understand how ITS can get connected with technology. The ITS Department has set the standards most of the common technology purchases. These guidelines were created to ensure compliance with College policy guidelines.
    • We will also assist in the planning for telephones, hardware and software, data and phone wiring, wireless access, and classroom technology. We will help to provide direction on who is responsible for procurement and maintenance of the equipment.
    • We will discuss future technology trends to ensure the technology is sustainable for the life of the grant. Make sure you've built in enough time for planning, installation, and testing of technology implementations.

    Application Development and Procurement

    Contemplating buying applications that are to be used across the network and that would reside on a server? We have application developers and integrators on staff that can help you review these applications. The Manager of Systems Analysis and ERP (Datatel) Support and staff will help you:

    • Evaluate and analyze
    • Develop applications
    • Customize and integrate off the shelf products

    Network Services

    Projects such as the following necessitate assistance and support from the various ITS team members. Contact ITS Field Operations Directors to coordinate the appropriate team to help analyze the technology needs. We are willing to conduct an analysis and assist in budget building for these kinds of projects:

    • Use of an application that must reside on a server to be accessed within or external to the College network.
    • Use of video or audio on demand clips for teaching and training.
    • Use of internet based communication tools such as desktop conferencing and webinars
    • Conferencing for live teaching technologies such as "Interwise"
