Software Survey Reminders

Last year, the Software and Cloud Services Acquisition and Renewals Process was updated to help streamline the appropriate IT Security and Privacy review.  As a reminder, whenever the University intends to utilize a vendor that may be responsible for processing or storing confidential or protected information, it is important to assess the vendor’s privacy and security capabilities and controls. Such assessments occur during the acquisition process and are triggered by the completion of the Software Survey in HuskyBuy. Privacy and security assessments may also be necessary at the time of a renewal, depending on the nature of the service. Continue reading

ACQUIRING COVID-19 PROTECTION ITEMS

Faculty, staff and researchers who cannot do their jobs from home and are approved by a department head or dean can submit requests through online web forms for face masks, hand sanitizer, pre-packaged disinfectant spray with paper towels and gloves through University Business Services. Other PPE can also be obtained during the normal procurement process through HuskyBuy.

HuskyBuy Update – Temporary Ship to Home Address

Due to the need to keep specific University areas functioning, as a temporary measure critical purchases related to the furthering of education and research only can be shipped directly to other in-state (CT) locations (e.g. home) through HuskyBuy. When a CT off campus address is used, requisitions will come to Procurement for final approval, regardless of dollar amount or contract vendor. If the employee of the “ship-to” address wishes not to list their personal address, please list your local USPS, FedEx, or UPS location for “pick-up.” When purchasing items with a ProCard, items must be shipped to a UConn address and NOT to other locations (e.g. home).
