If you are planning to purchase software it must be approved through OIT and General Counsel prior to making the purchase?

In order to initiate the approval process, please contact Tom Nevala at 1-8112. With his assistance, and, if necessary, you will be asked to outline your needs and assess the university’s security risk if the software is not currently in use on campus. As this must be done in advance, please plan for a few extra weeks to complete the process.

In many cases the university may already support a similar product and an additional site license will be purchased (saving your budget money). Complete Process. Read More
