Departmental/University Purchases

Why Purchase Technology through UIT Purchasing?

By purchasing through UIT Purchasing, UIT will provide a Technical Specifications review to ensure that the computer systems will support the use case for which the computer is being purchased.

  • ensures the computer has the correct operating system
  • ensures proper installation of the “Stack”

Use the links below for all standard (non-custom) purchases for departmental use only.  State and University purchasing rules apply. Catalogs and state contracts may offer products that are not supported by UIT. 

For custom orders, please contact UIT Purchasing  by email.

Please expect longer set-up and delivery times for non-standard tech purchased directly from a local store, a vendor or through UIT Purchasing Support.

ATTENTION: The Deadline for FY23 orders through UIT is Friday, May 19th.
