If you are looking (or have found) an online service or tool you would like to use at UC Berkeley, there are a few things to consider before proceeding with the vendor directly. Campus has protocols and terms that are required for agreements with vendors. Starting off on the right path can avoid re-work and delays later.
The following information has been curated from different resources for your convenience.
- Check to see if UC Berkeley has a software/cloud service that meets your needs:
- See the Benefits of using a UCB or SystemWide Agreement here
- Review the IT Software Catalog
This list includes services offered by the Office of the CIO (OCIO), Information Services and Technology (IST), Research, Teaching, and Learning (RTL), Student Affairs IT (SAIT), and Campus Shared Services IT (CSS IT)
Review Cloud Computing Services - Cloud computing is a model for delivering applications, information, infrastructure and/or services as pools of resources via the internet. For more information, review UC Berkeley IT Cloud Computing Options
If you are not able to utilize one of our Campus or System-Wide existing contracts, campus purchasing has a process to purchase from outside vendors who meet your needs.
