If your area is purchasing a technology product,* needs help determining a technical solution or navigating an upgrade, submit this request to schedule a consultation.

ITCS can help you:

  • Determine whether ECU already provides a solution.
  • Suggest technical questions you need to ask the vendor.
  • Verify how your new product will fit into ECU's existing IT architecture.
  • Navigate security requirements.
*NOTE: This technology purchase consultation is most helpful if completed before the Technology Request Form is submitted in PORT. If you're already working with Materials Management and certain decisions have been made, our consultation – while not as effective – will still provide required security and installation details. If in doubt, submit the request, and ITCS will determine how to help.
