Policy on Software Support Fee

The Software Support Fee is a charge levied annually on all campus computers and is used to contribute to the funding necessary to provide UWEC licensed software and software support. This covers the cost of licenses for campus-wide application software and infrastructure software directly used to support and maintain the campus computers. The present charge is based on projected budgets for approved software and maintenance. The Colleges and Divisions will have representatives on the Software Review Team to review software presently used, identify needs and determine if the fee needs to be increased to cover the expense of new software.

A chargeback authorization will be sent to the Deans and Administrators of the Colleges and Divisions in the fall for that fiscal year.
