Reply To: UNM Collaboration Tools and Support Standard


Should the Collaboration Tools Standard and Inquiry Tools and Analysis Standard be rolled up into a standard that encompasses the purchase of tools and products in general? Rather than write multiple standards for classes of tools, would it make sense to have this standard apply to software/service purchases in general and encourage departments/decision makers to take a look around and scan the environment before making purchases for tools that may already exist on campus.

To ease the search process, is there a catalog of software/tool purchases made on campus that includes the product, a description, cost, a point-of-contact at the department making the purchase, UNM IT security approvals, etc.?
