Information Technology Procurement Review (ITPR) is the process used to review technology purchases in order to ensure adherence to the Board of Regents (BOR) and Georgia State University’s Information Systems Use Policies, determine any impact to existing IT infrastructure, and provide advice about existing services which may already address the need reflected by the purchase.

This review is required by the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia (USG), the GSU VP of Finance and the GSU Associate Vice President/CIO at the purchase amounts indicated below. You may also read more about this policy at: USG Policy

Approval and Review

There are three tiers of IT Procurement Review and Approval dependent on the total purchase amount of IT products and services. They include:

Purchases Amount Approval and Review Required
$5,000 or more GSU Associate Vice President / CIO
$250,000 or more GSU VP of Finance and Administration
$500,000 or more Board of Regents Vice Chancellor/ CIO

Initiating Review

The Information Technology Procurement Request (ITPR) process is now integrated into the new Panther Mart purchasing system. When a purchase request for IT products and services is submitted, the purchaser will be prompted to complete the ITPR form within PantherMart.
