How to Request New Software

Step 1 Step 2 Step 3


Obtain Approval for Your Software

If you wish to request software which is not included in our list of supported software, you must obtain approval for your request from your department head or budget manager. Ask for your department's POETS code, and obtain the signature of your department head or budget manager and have this information prepared before you attempt to submit the New Software Request Form (see below).

Submit a Request for New Software

We maintain relationships with vendors which may allow us to secure your desired application at a reduced cost.  In addition, if we receive many requests for specific titles, we may decide to pursue a volume license agreement for that particular application.

Please submit your request with ITS. We will review your request and contact you to let you know if it has been approved.
