University Purchasing Procedures (March 2014)

2.1 Purchase of Computers and Related Supplies

With respect to the purchase of computers, computer components, printers and other related supplies: If the University's IT Procurement Office (ITP) can provide the required items they should be contacted as a potential supplier. Items may be purchased directly from ITP without obtaining alternate price quotations (as ITP has already performed this function). However, if the purchaser wishes to obtain price quotations with respect to one of these items, then one of the required three price quotations must be obtained from the IT Procurement Office. If the system configuration required is not available from ITP the quotation summary log must include written confirmation from ITP to that effect.

Who can buy from us?

IT Procurement is mandated to provide service for faculty and staff for business use (grant, university account purchases only).

Personal purchases cannot be made at the IT Procurement office.
