See Who Needs Acrobat Pro.
Is this software installed automatically on University computers like Microsoft Office and GroupWise?
Yes. This software is only installed on computers for which individual licenses have been purchased.
What are a department's responsibilities under this program?
Departments must keep detailed, accurate records of how many licenses they have purchased and which employees are using those licenses. Departments must assure that no unlicensed instances of the software are installed. If an employee leaves the University or no longer needs the software, the license may be transferred to another employee as long as the records are updated appropriately. Periodically the Division of Information Resources will consult with each KUMC department to assure rigorous software license compliance.
