    4. 4. Issues from October 2013 Procurement Meeting • Is there some way we can easily find out the status of negotiations on a license? • How can we ensure that licenses are reviewed in a timely fashion? • What types of changes to license agreements are Legal and the business office making? I am concerned that business or usage terms could be changed without my input. • When assessing our current licenses, which sections do I need to review in order to decide if the license needs to be redone? Or should I forward any agreement from the past 4-5 years to CUNY legal to decide?
