Below are the technical requirements necessary to support IPDAS in your organization.

Supported Server Operating Systems

The IPDAS database will typically occupy 1-5 GB of disk space (excluding back-ups) for a large firm.

  • 32-bit and 64-bit

Note: MS Word 365 will be supported while its current Semi-Annual version is supported. As of February 2022, that version is 2108. We plan to support future Semi-Annual versions of Office shortly after their release, but not necessarily on the same schedule that Office 365 offers them.
