PC Departmental Computer/Tablet Purchase

Procurement Procedure

Each academic year the Committee on Institutional Technology Strategy (CITS), standardizes on both Mac/PC desktops, laptops and tablet models that become the preferred choices for the campus to use. A combination of processor speed, memory, hard drive size and speed, size, weight as well as price are factored into the selection. In general, we choose hardware requirements with a 4 year life cycle in mind. Once these models are selected, CITS staff review them for functionality with various campus software and configuration tools.

On a quarterly basis, Purchasing will solicit quotes through the IT Umbrella Based Contract process. Each quarter, the new winning vendor information (vendor name and contract reference #) will be posted to the website.

Custom Configurations

Sometimes the campus configurations might not meet the needs of specific programs. Applications and scenarios that require a higher configuration, such as AutoCAD, intense data analysis and video/graphic editing software, generally warrant higher end processors and graphics cards. In other situations, more drive space, memory, or a larger screen might be needed. In these cases, a custom quote needs to be requested and generated by one of the Information Technology staff.

This can be accomplished by filling out the Custom Computer/Printer Hardware Request form and consulting with the School Tech assigned to your area.

The above method can also be used to request non-standard printers, monitors, and tablets.
