Why We're Here

University Technology (UTech) and University Marketing and Communications (UMC), in collaboration with Procurement and Distribution Services (PDS) and Office of General Counsel (OGC), worked to implement a university-wide change to the process of procuring IT related items. University policy necessitated this change, with the goal of minimizing the risk footprint of the university. Risk is measured in many forms, including data security, financial risk, compliance, and more. This process change helps to ensure that our data is secure, good financial stewardship is practiced throughout the university, the university's brand is protected, and that the university is meeting accessibility standards for all.
