How Do I Purchase Software for an FIU-Owned Computer?

Step 1: Choose any program from the available software list and obtain purchase approval from your department or you may submit a request for software not currently on the approved list. The Division of IT may suggest alternatives to software that is not currently on the software list. However, all requests will be reviewed and the Division of IT will work to accommodate requests in the best interest of the department and the university.

Step 2: Contact the DoIT Support Center by calling 305.348.2284. You may also initiate the order for your software by using the DoIT Online Service Request System.

Step 3: Complete and return the following:

  • A Software Proposal
  • A Software License Agreement Form
  • Your payment via SMART BILLING

** All required forms and instructions will be e-mailed to you after a request has been placed with DoIT.

After step 3, you will be notified within 48 hours on when to pick up your software and product key (provided that all the above-listed documents have been submitted). There are no provisions for returning incorrectly ordered software so please be sure to specify which product, product version, and operating system you are ordering for (e.g. Windows Vista, Mac OS X).

Important note: Unless the software has been site-licensed, you will be required to purchase one license for each computer you intend to run/install the software on (i.e. if you plan on installing the software on five computers, you may only need to purchase one CD, but you will have to purchase five separate licenses).
