When requesting a SharePoint site collection you have the option to choose one of two pre-built templates (Project or Team) applied to your site or you may choose to have blank site collection if more advanced customization is required.
Select a Project Site if a pre-built customizable template is required for managing projects such as creating tasks, assigning users, deadlines, etc.
Select a Team Site if a pre-built customizable template is required for creating, organizing, and sharing information.
Select a Blank Site if no pre-built template is required and you will receive a blank site to customize.
There is no cost for this service as it is provided by CCS.
