Do you have a list of requirements and have you thought through the processes you want to model with the system?
Already in Use?
Is the University already using the system you’re interested in and have they done due diligence?
The system might show up in Information Security TPSA List or in the IT Services Application Catalogue. In that case you could contact purchasing to see if they have negotiated terms or a framework agreement.
Is there an alternative already in use in the University?
This is a tricky question as the possibilities are endless - the current application catalogue only includes software in use in central services, not the MSD. It doesn't guarantee that the software has been through the entire assurance process.
