What's the best way for staff to purchase software for college-owned computers?
Contact ITS to purchase software not available on https://www.macalester.edu/its/software-download/
  • ITS may already have a copy of the software available to distribution (not all licensed software is available for download).
  • ITS will most likely be able to purchase the software from existing vendors for less.
  • ITS will ensure that the College's tax exempt status will be used to purchase the software.
  • ITS ill be able to provide installation support and where possible, limited functional support.


To purchase software:
  • Have your department's FOAPAL available to cover the cost.
  • Have your supervisor's approval.
  • Contact the ITS Help Desk for more information.
