DocuSign is a “software as a service” tool that has been identified to automate electronic routing, signature and storage of documents.
This pilot project includes a one-year campus wide license for DocuSign, to demonstrate the value of this tool for campus in automating a number of business processes requiring signatures. Based on the first year outcomes, if value is demonstrated, a proposal will be developed to fund ongoing licensing and support of the tool as a campus wide service.

A license for 2017 has been procured and centrally funded for the pilot participants. At the end of the pilot period an evaluation will be made about continuing DocuSign as a campus wide service, and what funding and support model would be most appropriate moving forward.
