System Procurement and Implementation

We provide pre-adoption support, business process analysis, and implementation project management for academic and operational technology within Academic Affairs.

Adopting Technology at UVU

If you are seeking to adopt technology hardware, software, system subscription, etc. whether through a purchase, partnership, or a “free” offer to the university or yourself, that will be used for university business, you must have your request reviewed and approved by the IT Oversight Committee. If the technology is related to teaching, learning, or you are a part of a department that reports to a college/school, or Academic Affairs, you must first have a recommendation for purchase from ATSC

If you are not sure whether IT support or this approval is required, please contact us so that we can help assess that before you proceed with a purchase or adoption. We wish to save you time and effort and to ensure you have the appropriate IT resources to implement and support whatever is needed in your area. For more detail on these groups and to see a list of ATSC representatives for your area, click here.

Our office will guide you in preparing your proposal for ATSC or IT Oversight, including arranging for any technology or data security assessments and agreements, which will help you avoid delays in implementation. Please note that purchases of course materials that include technology are done under an approved process through the university bookstore, and in collaboration with our office. Please contact us if you have any questions about any of these requirements.

We will request the following information and documentation from technology vendors, so that they can be reviewed by our Accessibility Office, before any recommendation for adoption can be made:

  • A Voluntary Product Accessibility Template or other documentation of compliance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act and WCAG 2.0 Level AA.
  • An accessibility roadmap describing identified accessibility gaps, current resolution status, timeline for remediation, and any known workarounds to provide end users access pending resolution.

Project Management

We can assist with the assessment of your current business process, product research, data validation and integration, and implementation project management. Please contact us if you would like to explore process improvement or technology adoption.
