Standard Software Change

Decisions to add, delete, or upgrade software in the standard software suite will be based on input from faculty and staff, proven product benefit, software costs, computing staff resources, and compatibility with the computing environment. Additions or modifications to the standard software suite will be available after appropriate testing.

Testing will be done by Computing Service and a test users group comprised of faculty and staff members most likely to utilize the program(s) in question. The purpose of the testing will be to determine the value and compatibility of the program.
