Software not officially supported by ITS can be obtained through individual department funds for office or student lab usage. Software that is used for an individual computer or classroom use must be purchased by that department.
Software requests should be forwarded to the Dean by the chair of the department, or to the budget manager of a non-academic department. Pass along any quotes you have obtained and include a memo entitled “Software Request” which states the following:
- Number of software copies needed
- Where the software will be installed (include specific office locations and labs)
- Course names which will utilize the software (if applicable)
- Number of students in each class, if software is for student use
Based on this, the Dean or head of the department will see if there are enough funds to cover the purchase. Then the Dean or department head will supply you with a POETS code to expedite processing by ITS.
