Service Overview

The information technology (IT) PCR process is part of CSULB's ongoing commitment to ensure that our campus meets electronic technology standards set forth by the California State University (CSU) system and CSULB.

Service Details

The three main areas evaluated for compliance through the PCR include:

Accessibility

PCR evaluates IT products and services for compliance with the CSU Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI), which reflects the CSU’s ongoing commitment to provide access to information resources and technologies to individuals with disabilities—CSU students, faculty, staff and the general public regardless of disability.

Security

PCR evaluates IT products and services for compliance with established Federal, State, and CSU information security regulations and standards. Application and web development environments must comply with these standards to safeguard campus information and resources. Contracts for services involving applications, web development or hosting must incorporate appropriate language.  Access, storage and transmission of Level 1 and 2 confidential information are subject to restrictions. Refer to CSULB Information Classification Standard.

Web or Cloud based products require that the vendor complete a HECVAT (Higher Education Cloud Vendor Assessment Tool).  

If Confidential or Sensitive Data is involved an SDRC (Security Data Requirements Checklist) must be completed by the department.

The HECVAT and SCRC forms are available on the Information Security Data Security Forms page.
