IT Professionals

Adobe CC is a cost recovery service through EITS Contracts and Licensing. The current licensing term began 2/20/17 and ends 2/19/2020. Participating departments and units can be found here.  

IT staff for new departments and units wanting to join the program should email contact EITS Contracts & Licensing for details. Email itcla@uga.edu.

Your unit will be charged annually based on the UGA Data Warehouse reported full-time equivalency (FTE) count of their unit. Individual departments may be rolled up into larger units or colleges for better pricing. The cost covers all FTE reported faculty and staff in the department.

Participating departments and units agree to continue participation until the end of the current agreement on February 19, 2020.

MOUs are generated annually with service dates of February 20 - February 19.

One IT Technical Contact Lead is assigned per unit. This position works directly with EITS Contracts & Licensing, and may assign other admin permissions to their support staff in the portal.

Technical Contact Leads are added to the Adobe Portal once the signed MOUs are received by EITS. Access is immediate upon initial portal set up and downloads may begin.  

There is a limit of the number of Leads allowed, so slots are reserved for central IT units. The Technical Contact Lead and Administrators are also responsible for setting up groups for your department and keeping named users current in the portal.

Users are audited intermittently and non-UGA accounts will be deleted when found as this is a violation of the agreement. Continued misuse may result in Technical Lead permissions being reviewed by Unit or Department Heads and EITS Contracts & Licensing. Any audit findings and penalties are the department's responsibility.

Installations are allowed on the unit's institutionally owned computers in labs, classrooms and departmental office machines. Contact your Departmental IT professional for access.
