Software Review Requests

Software Review Requests (SRRs) allow OIT to facilitate an interdepartmental review of new software, and software renewals. Our team is here to facilitate and answer questions regarding your software purchases.

The W's of Software Review Requests

If this is your first time submitting an SRR, we do not want you to feel like you are doing it alone. The process is facilitated by our team from beginning to end.

What?

A Software Review Request (SRR) is a collection of technical information gathered by the requester, and usually provided from the vendor. SRRs are routed through a committee of campus IT professionals, each with unique areas of expertise.

This group collectively checks for compatibility with Boise State’s existing IT infrastructure, compliance with University policies, and adherence to best practices and IT standards. An approved SRR signifies your selected product is the right one.

Why?

As you select software you wish to purchase, our team will ensure the software is reviewed for the safety and security of our campus community. Boise State stands to save resources by reducing redundancy and unifying toolsets.

Please refer to the University Application Inventory to determine if an existing approved software application may meet your department’s needs:

When?

Submit an SRR as soon as you have selected the product you wish to purchase. All new and renewal software purchases require an SRR. Renewals assist our team by capturing any changes that may have occurred with how Boise State utilizes the software.

Additionally, an Accessibility Review will be performed when software is utilized by students and/or the general public, in accordance with University Policy 8140 (Information Technology Accessibility).

Submit Your Software Review Request

After we receive your SRR submission, our team will assist you throughout the SRR process.
