The Divisional Software Licensing Group gives advice to OUCS on how to spend the central software funding financial contribution. This group has representatives from each of the divisions, ITSS and colleges.
Recently it has carried out a review of all of the central software funding. An announcement of how it intends to take over some funding of existing software and of a new software product is expected shortly.
At the moment the maintenance fee is contributed to by a small number of units of the University, the remainder of the fee being paid for from the central software funding budget. We need to determine the true level of usage of this software in order to determine whether this central funding contribution is justifiable
