Software Assessment

Software Assessment is a standardized assessment process of software purchases that, among other things, ensures: technical and security requirements are met, adequate resources are available, requirements are fully identified, redundancy of software on campus is avoided, and timelines set are the best for the University and not necessarily vendor driven. This assessment also leads to more effective and efficient implementations.

UTRGV faculty and staff are required to submit the software assessment request form before the software is cleared for purchase. For more on requirements for software purchases, please see IT and Data Governance.

Submit a Software Assessment request by following the instructions below:

  1. Login to the IT Support Center found at myUTRGV.
  2. Click on Software Assessment under Quick Links.
  3. Click on the Request Service button.

  1. Following the submission of the request, its status can be tracked via Services Project Request. It is important to note that the software assessment request will only remain in this view while the request is being evaluated. Assuming the request is approved, the request may no longer appear in this area. If the software request is converted to a project, it will then appear under the main "Projects/Workspaces" menu. Please note that depending on visibility settings or project membership, the project may not be visible to all users.
