New IT Policy Governs Technology Purchases

TAMPA, Fla. (Dec. 4, 2008) - In order to improve USF systems interoperability, security, and vendor relations, the university has adopted a new policy regarding technology purchases.


The Technology Acquisition Policy 0-518, found here on the new Information Technology Web site, states that all technology purchases must pass through the University Technology Standards Board (UTSB), with the exception of those products and services already recommended as a standard for USF.


The products and services already approved by the UTSB are available for purchase through the USF Computer Store. If you would like to purchase a product or service that exceeds the thresholds stated in the policy, you will need to complete this UTSB request form.


All requested technology purchases are reviewed promptly by the UTSB. Consulting services are also available upon request.
