Title: Virtual Server and External Technology Services Request Policy
Applicable: Furman University [Staff and Faculty]
Contacts: IT Service Center ext. 3277
Background: As Furman University faculty continue to research and develop innovative web technologies, and administrative offices continue to investigate ways to improve services, Information Technology Services (ITS) has seen a growing number of request to use either Furman virtual servers or external technology services. In order to make better use of University resources and promote sustainable technology solutions, it has become necessary to create a policy describing the steps for evaluating and approving such requests.
Policy: In order to promote sustainability and reduce costs, Information Technology Services will encourage requests for server resources to use either existing University systems, a University virtual server, or a ITS designated external technology service provider. Requests to use University virtual servers may be approved by either the Chief Information Officer (CIO) or the Director of Systems and Networks. Requests to use external technology services must be approved by the CIO.
