Purpose: Non-standard software is used for specific job functions such as accounting, graphic design, project management, specialized management reports etc.
Any software that did not come installed on your DAS computer by the TSC is considered non-standard.

Some non-standard software has already been tested and approved by TSC.  Software that is not on the approved non-standard list will need to go through testing and have the legal terms and conditions reviewd before an approval for purchasing will be authorized. 
Here is a list of standard and non-standard but approved software.

Tips: We recommend that you have your manager with Signature Authority email ETS Purchasing as soon as you know that you will need non-standard software. Time varies in the length of time it takes to receive software licenses.

Do you intend to acquire server software or desktop software?

  1. If server, is your server supported by the SDC?
  2. Desktop software, is it standard software or non-standard software.
    • Standard software, contact ETS Purchasing.
    • Non-standard software, refer to the Non-Standard software process below.
Non-standard software may be ordered as follow: 
  1. Email ETS Purchasing.
  2. Once ETS Purchasing has your request, a CSR will be created. 
  3. When the review has been completed and if it has been approved, it will then go through the quote process. If the software has been denied, you will recieve email notification of the denial and the reasoning for the denial.
