2. Determine if the change request should be made from a functional and technical perspective.
3. Details pertinent for inclusion in the project Modification Tracker log. This is used to monitor the state of all pending modifications from creation to functional/technical documentation through build and test.
B. Modification Request & Design Form - Once the originator completes Section One of this form, the originator with the Project Manager submits the document to the Modification Governance Committee for review and a decision to move forward with the change or with a suggested alternative.

E. Modification Request & Design Form - Once the change is approved the originator works with the assigned technical resource to complete the Sections Three: Design Specification and Four: Technical Impact Analysis of this form. Development can proceed when once these sections have been completed.
F. For changes to CMS baseline, once the change is approved, the originator and the technical resource need to complete a COMR Impact Analysis form. This form is required by CSU CMS regardless of the size and scope of the change, and determines if a COMR Exception request is required. These two COMR forms, including the COMR Migration Request form and the CSU CMS approval requirements are described in the next section.
