Software Purchase Request Outcomes


What are the various types of software purchase request outcomes for University devices?


Software purchase requests and software install requests typically have one of the following outcomes: 

  • If software requested has previously been approved for purchase/install, you will receive a response in your ticket confirming that the request is approved. ITS will contact you via ticket communication that the software is ready for installation. 
  • If software requested is denied, you will receive a ticket communication explaining the justification for the denial.
  • If request is for NEW software, or for a product that has NOT previously been approved, it is required to go through the University’s mandatory Software Purchase & Request Review Process
