Software Management Guidelines

All software offered through this program is reviewed annually for volume of distribution and cost of license. The renewal of the license for each package is dependent not only on the funding the CIO has available, but also on the usage patterns. Software acquisition guidelines are detailed in Software Life-cycle Management Guidelines, and testing and acquisition decisions are aided by the Site License Advisory Team. Please subscribe to the e-mail list, SLICNEWS, for announcements.
