  2. along with the request the organization should provide a detailed description of the project priorities
  3. to allow time for adequate preparation for any project there should be a lead time of at least six (6) months
  4. the officers of SAGE Alberta will review the information provided to determine the feasibility of the project and, if deemed feasible, will pass the request on to the Building Committee for the final approval and implementation
  5. once the project is approved the requesting organization will be asked to provide the name of a local contact person who will be in charge of overseeing the project and have decision making authority
  6. the SAGE Building Coordinator will work with the contact person
