ACTION REQUIRED

To help minimise the impact to staff when changes are made, we are starting to engage with colleagues across the University to ensure Schools and Departments have as much notice as possible. Therefore, any business-critical activities that the project will need to consider before commencing work should be raised with Project Managers, John Gilding  or  Anthony Tunley.

On the day of the changeover there will be a period of downtime as we transfer to the new hardware. Disruption may range from 10 minutes to 4 hours depending on the complexity of the IT hardware in the location.

We are recommending colleagues work remotely or from an alternate location on campus on the day of the changeover to minimise the impact they experience.

A reminder notice will be sent a week before the scheduled work date.
