Clinic Moves

      Clinics moving to new locations or relocating

      required. This is to ensure that DIT has time to
      contact with the phone company for circuit
      connections & disconnections. It also allows
      them to block off time to be available to assist
      local IT staff if necessary.
      Please provide at least 30 days notice for clinic
