The Information Technology Acquisition Process ensures that all information technology (IT) resources purchased at Rowan University are compatible with existing technology and meet security requirements and regulations.

As part of this process, a team of IRT managers and staff review requests for any IT need, including software, hardware, IT consulting and IT services.


How Do I Make an Technology Purchase Request?

All requests for technology are made through the IRT Support Portal. Requests that require evaluation through the Information Technology Acquisition Process will be automatically routed for the appropriate review and approvals. 

For more information about making purchases in the portal, visit 


What Happens After I Submit a Request?

After you submit a request your supervisor, department head or dean will be notified via email and asked to approve the request.. If your request is approved by your supervisor, a team of IRT managers and staff will review your request for compatability and capability.

The IRT Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer (CIO) makes the final decision on ITAP requests. The employee who submitted the request will be notified via email after the CIO has made the final decision on the request.

If the CIO approves the request, the order can then be entered in Banner as a requisition.  Note: After submitting the requisition in Banner, you need to forward your confirmation email and a completed ITAP form to Purchasing.

Which Technology Resources Require IRT Review?

All technology resources purchased at Rowan University may be subject to review. You will be directly notified during the purchasing process if your request requires review
