Awaiting Needs Gathering: first step of a project, our AV Staff meet with Project Requester and stakeholders to document needs and expectations for the project, preferred timelines, etc.

Design Phase: AV Staff take the needs documentation and crafts a design for the AV project.

Awaiting Design Approval: the design is sent to the Project Requester for review and approval, revisions and final approval will happen in this stage.

Awaiting Purchase Approval
: upon design approval, our AV Staff will put together a purchase proposal and present it to the Project Requester for approval.

Awaiting Purchased Hardware
: once approved the purchase order will be placed and the wait for the hardware delivery begins. As of AY22-23, the time frame for this stage has been significantly impacted by supply chain problems and can be 6-18 months.
