TAPREQ Process

The ServiceNow TAPREQ is required for technology (electronic and information resources) used by or at the direction of UTA.  Technology includes webpages, software, resources accessed by a computer or mobile device, and any related vendor services.  

Through the ServiceNow process, reviews will be completed by the Information Security Office, Enterprise Architecture and EIR Accessibility.

Procurement

ProCard

If you will use your ProCard for a technology purchase, the TAPREQ is required prior to your Business Affairs Exception Tracker (BAET) request.  Include a copy of the ServiceNow approval email with your BAET so that Accounting Services will be able to process your request.   Keep in mind that if the software is listed on the Pre-Approved list and you follow all listed instructions, the TAPREQ is not required.  Contact paymentcard@uta.edu to determine if a BAET is required.

Purchase Order

If you will use a requisition for a technology purchase, the TAPREQ should be completed prior to creating the requisition in UTShare.  Include a copy of the ServiceNow approval email with your requisition so that Procurement will be able to process your request.
