In March 2012, The University of Texas at Austin’s Strategic IT Accountability Board (SITAB) endorsed the transition from the university's existing central voice system to Voice-Over-Internet (VoIP) technology.

Existing private telephone systems are grandfathered at their current size. Purchase of new private systems and additions or upgrades to existing private systems must be authorized by SITAB. To request approval, send an email to telecom@its.utexas.edu. SITAB rarely approves requests for new distributed private telephone systems.
