Published: 24 Jul 2008

Make a suggestion

You can still submit your software suggestion. To do so, please include a brief explanation of how it works toward the goals of the CIO's mission regarding academic software.

Those goals are:

  • to obtain the best possible price on campus for use of software for research, teaching and administration
  • to remove administrative burden on lab managers, units, and individuals in negotiating and purchasing site licenses at the unit-level
  • to reduce the occurrence of software piracy
  • to promote the use of preferred or mandated software on campus, including open-source solutions

With your brief explanation, please also include (if possible) an estimate of the anticipated number of software users and any people or areas using it on campus.
