Information Technology Review (ITR) for Software

The Information Technology Review (ITR) process is part of CSUSM’s commitment to making the resources and tools used on campus accessible, secure, and compatible with our IT infrastructure. Before the purchase, IITS can make sure the campus does not already own the software, have something similar, or the intended purchase is excluded from this process.
