Vendor and Software Purchase Assessment


Campus Technologies can work with faculty and staff to review and publish a list of supported technology vendors and software. This assessment ensures that software conforms to the College’s standards of accessibility, privacy requirements of FERPA and HIPAA, cybersecurity requirements, system integration, and contractual needs.

Standard Features

Campus Technologies can provide service for the following types of requests

  • List of supported vendors and software used by Parkland College.

    • Assess vendor security compliance, which will require the vendor to submit “SOC 2/Type 2” documents. The service requestor will also be asked to complete a form identifying the data that will be stored on the new software.
    • Identify the system integration needs, which will require the vendor to complete a Microsoft form provided by Campus Technologies.
    • Review and establish a master contract agreement with the new vendors, if one does not exist.
