To purchase a new desktop, laptop, or server for your department, you are required to have the equipment approved by IS before submitting the Purchase Order (PO) to the Purchasing Department. (Purchasing will not process your PO without approval from an IS Desktop Technician.)
To purchase computer peripherals and accessories for your machines, you are not required to have the item approved by IS. However, if you need assistance in selecting an item suitable for your computer, you can contact the IS Help Desk and one of our desktop technicians can provide recommendations for you.
Software is not required to be approved by IS prior to purchasing. However, often we can provide recommendations.
