Contracts - Technology Acquisition Review

Supplemental IT contractual terms are CSU boilerplate contractual language that address information security risks and can be tailored to the technology acquisition scope. The Information Security team determines if the acquisition requires any supplemental IT contractual terms to protect CSU liability. In most cases, supplemental IT contractual terms are not necessary for hardware purchases. In many cases, they are required for cloud services, software, and other IT services.

When supplemental IT contractual terms are identified for an acquisition, the term numbers should be forwarded to Procurement and Support Services so they can be included and/or negotiated with the vendor.

If you have already submitted a requisition, forward the approved TAR number (e.g., RITMXXXXX) to Procurement and identify the supplemental IT contractual term numbers that were provided in your approved TAR. If you have not submitted a requisition, include the approved TAR number and supplemental IT contract term numbers in the comment section when you submit your requisition.

P-cards cannot be used when Supplemental IT contractual terms are required for an acquisition. If you were planning to use a P-card, contact Procurement and Support Services for guidance.
