2. AP–IT is available for consultation on options and costs, and will provide quotes as requested. AP–IT should be alerted when new equipment is ordered, so that setup and installation can be scheduled. When an individual requests licensed (purchased) software to be installed on their computer, the license number must be provided as proof of purchase. AP–IT will schedule the software for overnight installation (when possible), or install it at a time convenient to the user. More information on ordering software licenses is available at UF’s Software Licensing Services.
3. Standardization of IT equipment (hardware and/or software) promotes support efficiency. Any supported unit opting for non-standard equipment must inform AP–IT to determine supportability.
4. Units should follow their internal purchase procedures to order and pay for IT related equipment and software.
