Software Requests & IT Governance Process

How to Start a Software Request

Requests for new and/or replacement software must be submitted to the IT Governance Committee for approval. Please complete the form below and a member of our IT team will follow up with you (in 1-2 Business Days).

Start a New Request

Once submitted, software requests will go through a Tech Review with IT Services and then reviewed by the IT Governance Committee for approval(s).

IT Governance Committee Members

  • Charlie Weaver - Chief Information Officer / Associate Vice President
  • Gail Taylor – Associate Vice President of Finance
  • Kristen Salomonson – Dean of Enrollment Services & Director of Admissions & Records
  • Steve Reifert – Interim Associate Provost of Academic Operations

The IT Governance Committee was formed to review new software application requests in order to reduce expenses, reduce risk, reduce outdated and/or redundant software, and improve overall service of the network. The Committee will:

  • Review the new applications or software at the University, and make decisions about whether to approve the requests.
  • Establish relative priorities for the timing of implementations of software purchases, version upgrades, and other projects.
