Am I blessed or is this a common occurrence?

Company secops teams been screaming for a change to decommission Centos 5 machines for 6-8 months. I'd gladly make the change but as a mere ops team member I need engineering to create a production ticket to work on. Not happened despite asking for it once a week since June. Due to deadline being this Friday I created a ticket last Thursday but has taken a week for engineering to respond to say it's okay to proceed. Pretty much a days effort stretched out to be 5-6 weeks worth of working on personal stuff.

Only downside is the weekly meeting where I have to point out that I've still haven't received answers to the questions asked 3 months ago.

Laughable, but after 6 months, it's now been decided a project manager is required when the issue could be resolved in 2-3 days if someone just made a decision.
