Request Something DoTS offers > Devices > Computer / Tablet > Other


DoTS provides ways for you to install and update common software without contacting DoTS via Software Center (for Windows) and Self Service (for Macintosh).  Also, DoTS can install more unique software for you or work with you as you install the software by remotely giving you temporary access to install - it is quick and easy.  These methods help limit your risk and liability.  However, you may need to get local workstation administrator permissions.  Having administrator permissions requires responsibility.  Therefore, you'll need to print the PDF file on this page, read the document, accept the user agreement, and get the appropriate signatures before your request is considered.
