Services Catalog

The OIT Services Catalog is a list of the services that we provide to customers. The Service Catalog provides information about delivery expectations along with other pertinent information. It is an important tool to ensure accuracy and consistency of communications. Each catalog entry includes:

  • A description of the service
  • Service hours
  • Customer procedures on how to access the service
  • Delivery expectations
  • Links to additional information

The Service Catalog is updated on a quarterly basis. Please keep the following in mind:

  1. These services are subject to adjustment due to fluctuations in resources including funding and staff.
  2. Please plan accordingly based on the time frames provided for each service.
