What if an agency/state entity does not have enough funding to perform the analysis and/or preparation of Project Approval Lifecycle Stage/Gate deliverables?

Some Agencies/state entities may need funding for resources (temporary staffing or contract services) to conduct the analysis and/or preparation of Project Approval Lifecycle Stage/Gate deliverables (e.g., requirements elicitation, alternatives analysis, solicitation development, etc.). Agencies/state entities may request a budget augmentation to support such activities. An approved Stage 1 Business Analysis must be submitted in a timely manner to the Department of Technology and approved before the Agency/state entity submits a related Budget Change Proposal to the Department of Finance.
