Learning & Information Technology in conjunction with Procurement & Materials Management and Business & Financial Services has revised the computer purchasing process.

The revised process includes standardized models which will lower the cost of support, lower computer purchasing costs for departments, provide consistent expectations of access to technology and better overall network and information security.

New HP computers must be purchased using the HP order form found on the purchasing webpage. HP computer purchases are now limited to the models on the form. An exception form must be submitted and approved by LIT if procuring an HP computer not on the form. The process for purchasing Apple computers is currently unaffected. The Apple computer purchasing process and the exception process are under review for updates that will be coming soon.

LIT wants to partner with individuals and departments in a proactive effort to identify technology needs prior to computer purchases. LIT will be moving in the direction of appointing specific staff members to partner with departments as a computer purchasing liaison. At this time please contact the Technology HelpDesk and ask for a staff member; we will be happy to help with your computer purchases.
