Can I Request an Exception?

The exception process is intended to serve specific teaching, research, and clinical needs that cannot be met by our current offerings. Exceptions based on preference will be denied.

At a minimum, exceptions are approved by your department's financial approver and executive leadership, as well as IT. Regular reports of exception approvals will be provided to the computer standardization oversight committee, CFO, and University President. 

Exception Request Forms:

When asking for an exception, IT may reject your request and offer an alternative from our approved vendors. The alternative offered may be more expensive. From an enterprise viewpoint, lowest price on a non-standard model equates to higher costs as it relates to business processes, IT support, and other management tools. When we remain in a product set from approved vendors these costs are mitigated.
