After submitting my software request, I was asked for proof of ownership. Doesn’t the organization purchase the software when we ask for it?

There is a process for requesting funding. An important determining factor is the software application, its use, and benefits by the university communities. You will have to present a Business Case Project Summary, to the Architectural Standards Review Board (ASRB).
