Purchase Software

To request no-cost software (except Oracle), please go to the following site for more instructions. http://web.uri.edu/its/its-handouts/handout-61/

To purchase software email the IVPO (Internal Vendor Purchase Order) to the Help Desk (helpdesk@uri.edu), Kingston Library LL19. If you have any questions please email helpdesk@uri.edu or call 401-874-4357 option 1.

Once we have received your request and has entered it in the system someone from the Help Desk will contact you to schedule the installation. This usually happens within 1-2 business days of receiving the college requisition. Most Office installs can be accomplished over the network (enabling quicker service). Unfortunately, installation of an operating system can not always be scheduled within two business days due to staffing and the number of trouble calls at the Help Desk. We will also check whether there is a tech in your department. If so, that person may be available sooner.

If an operating system install requires data transfer from another machine, the Help Desk will schedule the data transfer for a Friday afternoon and return the machine on Monday. The faculty or staff member must be present during the Friday afternoon appointment to detail which files and folders will be moved.

Once you have submitting the IVPO for the Key Server Software, you can download the client here: http://www.sassafras.com/support.html
