Can I request an EASI app through this committee?

Applications developed by EASI do not currently require an information risk assessment (IRM) but do require a privacy impact assessment (PIA). These applications have an existing governance process and are outside the scope of the Application Review Committee.

Why are some approved apps available to everyone and why are some user restricted?

Two types of apps and add-ins can be implemented as part of the approval process:

    • Low-risk apps: Identified low-risk apps that do not access Microsoft 365 data are available for University-wide use. 
    • Higher risk apps: Apps that are higher risk and integrate with Microsoft 365 data can be enabled for specific user groups after going through a request and approval process. 

If you would like access to a higher risk app, please submit a request through the Enterprise Service Centre. 

What is the process for requesting a new app or add-in?

Members of the University community can request third-party apps and add-ins from the University’s Microsoft 365 team. These requests are subject to a review process that involves:

  • Approval by the requester’s divisional IT administrators.
  • An evaluation by the Application Review Committee.
  • A risk assessment.
