External Application Development and Support

OBJECTIVE & PURPOSE

The purpose of this policy is twofold:

  1. Establish a policy relating to the support, by the Office of Information Technologies (OIT), of computer applications developed and/or written and maintained outside of OIT.
  2. Ensure information systems that are used to support a business function at this institution meet or exceed industry standards for data and network privacy and security.

POLICY

Except as noted below, OIT does not provide ongoing support for computer applications developed, written, or maintained by individuals or groups outside of OIT. This includes software written for mainframes, minicomputers, and servers and PCs. Also included are computer programs written by university employees outside of OIT and those written by university students either in a cooperative education or classroom instruction situation. Software acquired from established software vendors to develop a university business system must be reviewed and approved by OIT. (See Decentralized Business and Networking Systems policy)
