  6. 6. Electrification/Cabling (Option F) <ul><li>For instances where an electrical/data cabling upgrade or reconfiguration is needed, the integration team will determine the requirements in order to support the new Reso A hardware and the Reso A PMO/BTM will review. </li></ul><ul><li>Minor Electrical/Data cabling is only eligible in support of NEW Reso A hardware. As a guideline, costs for cabling should not exceed 50% of the allocation total. </li></ul><ul><li>The Reso A PMO will arrange for a cabling survey and provide the school with a project change request (PCR) for the cabling scope and cost (to be funded by the Reso A allocation). The principal may approve or decline this request at this point. </li></ul><ul><li>The Reso A team will initiate, monitor and close out the additional cabling project to ensure it happens in coordination with the HW purchasing efforts for a timely project completion. </li></ul><ul><li>Extensive cabling is considered a construction project rather then a technology project. Schools in this scenario will be transferred to the SCA for management. </li></ul>
