System Design Document

The system design document (SDD) is the documentation used by CITS to maintain, upgrade and if necessary, restore the system. The documentation needs to be up-to-date to reflect the latest changes to the system.

The SDD is a mandatory pre-requisite for the following scenarios:

  • New systems.
  • Upgrade an existing system.

The latest version of the system design documentation template is available for download here.

To submit an SDD please send an email to

Once submitted, the SDD will be reviewed by CITS and the business owner notified of the review status.
