IT Contracts and Licensing Administration

IT Contracts and Licensing

IT Contracts and Licensing was established as a department within EITS in January 2002 to provide cost-effective management IT contracts and renewals, software licensing, hardware maintenance, and IT-related services. 

Contracts and Licensing plays an integral pre-procurement role in leveraging consolidated IT expenditures for EITS and UGA in concert with the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia (USG).

Contracts & Licensing provides a number of services in support of UGA key initiatives, including:

  • Negotiating EITS hardware, software, support and service procurements, as needed
  • Providing negotiation services for select institutional purchases, as resources permit
  • Reviewing the terms and conditions of new and existing hardware and software maintenance contracts to find savings opportunities and reduce risk
  • Ensuring that hardware and software maintenance contracts are renewed in a timely manner
  • Cultivating and maintaining relationships with key vendor partners
  • Facilitation of major EITS and UGA IT procurements to consolidate requirements and create purchasing economies of scale and synergies
  • Providing UGA faculty, staff, and students with access to lower cost software licensing
  • Managing high-level administrative access for applicable enterprise software for UGA
  • Liaising with USG for system-wide vendor management and select negotiations
