Review Software Purchases and Renewals With SARB

Illustration of the SARB process

The OIT Project Management Office reminds campus to review all software purchases and renewals with the Software and Accessibility Review Board (SARB). A SARB request is required to ensure software complies with university standards to ultimately reduce redundancy, save resources, and unify toolsets.

What is a SARB request?

A SARB request collects technical information and routes it through a committee of campus IT professionals. The board check’s for compatibility with Boise State’s existing IT infrastructure, compliance with university security and accessibility policies, and adherence to IT best practices and standards.

When to Submit a SARB Request

If the software is new to your department, submit a request as soon as you have selected the product you wish to purchase.

If renewing software, a SARB review is required to capture any changes that may have occurred with how Boise State utilizes the software.

Some instances do not require a SARB review. Visit the OIT Project Management Office website for more information.
