On the IDR, the following information must be included:

    4.  University account(s) to be charged (for installation and recurring monthly costs).

Upon receipt of the IDR, the Telecommunications Department will assign a Telecommunications Service Request (TSR) number to the request. A memorandum will be sent to verify receipt of the IR and provide the TSR number.

Standard time intervals for accomplishing TSRs are identified in Policy F053, Requests for Service/Equipment.

INSTALLERS CANNOT MAKE CHANGES TO THE TSR WITHOUT THE SPECIFIC APPROVAL OF THE ASSOCIATE VICE PRESIDENT OF TELECOMMUNICATIONS AND COMPUTER OPERATIONS OR HIS/HER DESIGNEE.
