Policy Manual

VII. Software

GCSU provides many software programs and data obtained under contracts or licenses and distributes them across campus. These resources may not be copied, altered, or distributed without consent of the Chief Information Officer (CIO) or their designee. GCSU offices and departments requiring special software should discuss it prior to purchase/acquisition with the CIO or their designee to ensure that it is compatible, nonduplicative and will work within the existing GCSU infrastructure. IT will place the order for the software charging back costs as appropriate. The license and original copy of the media will be held by IT. Any software installed on an UOC must be a legal copy, approved and installed by IT.
