The Office of Information Technology is promoting a centralized computer purchasing program. This program is designed to maximize the financial resources of the university by ensuring computers purchased meet environmental and efficiency standards, are appropriately sized and equipped for the type of work being performed, and are standardized for efficient support. We have worked with HP and Dell to secure access to state-contract pricing on desktops, tablets PCs, and laptops for institutional use. Additionally, this program will ensure all computers meet Energy Star and EPEAT standards for efficiency and environmental responsibility.

All computer purchases using University funds must be made from this standardized listing. It is understood that the recommended systems may not be appropriate for research use. We also recognize that in a small percentage of cases, some may have specific needs that the standard PC or Laptop may not address. We will be glad to work with you in these unique cases to find an appropriate solution.  We try to keep a small inventory of the standard units on hand to expedite deployment.  Any computers that need that be ordered will have a 3 to 4 week lead time for delivery.
