Purchasing IT equipment – changes to the process from 1 August

29 Jul 2015

From Saturday 1 August 2015, the budget for IT equipment spend (excluding software and telecoms equipment) will be consolidated and owned by the Directorate of IT Services.

This has introduced a small change in the way in which requests for IT equipment should be made.

For the purchase of any desktop computer, laptop, tablet or printer, a request must be sent via the ‘Purchasing IT Equipment’ request form in Support Centre Online:

A specialist team in IT Services will work with you to ensure the equipment is suitable, supportable, sustainable and compatible with the University’s IT estate.    

To purchase other IT items such as peripherals and consumables, your local requisitioner will continue to be able to process the request.
