Standard work requests
VITA has established standard solutions for its most requested services. Select Standard Work Requests on the left side of this webpage to view these services. Time to production is significantly reduced if customer environments fit the conditions detailed on each service webpage. Each of these services has its own MS Word form detailing specifications, options, and implementation initiation sign-off. Find them in the Form Library.
To order a service listed as a Standard Work Request, follow the instructions for Standard Work Requests in the How Do I webpage > Use this Catalog.
The service catalog team is announcing the availability of new functions for requesting and reviewing work requests for VITA services. Agency IT Resource personnel (AITRs) may access an online Work Request Management (WRM) database. These AITRs may also authorize their agency's staff to submit work requests via the VITA Service Catalog website. AITRs may then review, edit and submit these requests to VITA.
AITRs may request online access
AITRs may contact the service catalog project manager to initiate their access to WRM, and authorize access for some or all agency staff to the service catalog submission function. CAMs will be asked to approve requests. Target response is within two business days.
