We assist our affiliates with office software purchases by recommending tools based on our staff's expertise and on the standards of FAS and Harvard University.

We also assist departments and research centers at CGIS in ordering software at a discount through Harvard's Site Licensing and Govconnection websites. Most popular desktop applications can be ordered through a Harvard University billing code at a discount.

If you would like to order software, receive a quote, or have any questions about software recommendations, please contact us.

Note: Departments, centers, and individuals are required to track their respective software licenses.
