Making Smart Software Purchasing Decisions at Montclair State University

As the thoughtful procurement of software requires a comprehensive and methodical evaluation with respect to compatibility with the existing Montclair State environment, security, compliance, ongoing total costs of ownership, support models and administrative maintenance plans among other concerns, the presentation below is intended to be a training opportunity to familiarize any of those who are embarking on making a purchase for the first time and a tool kit with checklists and convenient links to policies and forms for those who may be more familiar with the process.

We encourage you to pass along this presentation to anyone who will be engaging in the research, evaluation, acquisition or implementation and support of any new software or software as a service platform, including cloud based services.
