Software Procurement

Software at EMU is centrally managed. IS will assist with negotiations, acquisition and management of licenses. By having central management, IS is able to advocate for strategic solutions that brings the most benefit to EMU.

Here is the process for software purchases:

  1. Contact IS to see if its something we already own

  2. Include IS in demos of the software

  3. Develop a proposal including information on how the software will bring value to EMU and how it will be funded

  4. Present the proposal to the Software Task Force

  5. A decision will be made by the Software Task Force

Once the software is approved IS will negotiate, purchase the software and work with you to develop an implementation plan.
