Start Your Project

Have an idea for an IT project?

Step 1: In order to get started, you need to fill out an IT Intake Request Form

Step 2: Your IT Intake Request Form will be evaluated by the CMS Intake Review Team (CIRT)

Step 3: You'll be contacted and advised about your next steps

After completing the intake process, you will work with your project team to complete key artifacts and to prepare for and schedule gate reviews. The figure below outlines the intake process.

Illustration of a stacked chevrons flow chart. It all starts with a new idea. The first stacked chevron from the top is for step 1. In step 1, the business owner submits the IT intake request form. The second chevron stacked from the top is for step 2. In step 2, the CMS intake review team (CIRT) evaluates the IT intake request form, and specifies next steps. The third stacked chevron from the top is for step 3. In step 3, a CIRT member contacts the business owner, and advises on next steps. The last stacked chevron represents the continuation of the XLC lifecycle.
