Obtain a License to Software or Database

Software licenses, including “shrink wrap” and “click-through” licenses are actually a form of contract, and are subject to Regents Policy (PDF) that requires all University contracts to be on University standard contracts or on forms approved by the OGC, and to be signed or accepted by a University employee to whom that authority has been expressly delegated. See the Contracts section of the OGC website for more details. Often, software licenses, especially low-dollar ones, can present special challenges to negotiate.
