Guidelines for Requesting New Computers

Effective Date: June 1, 2016 / Updated Jan 1, 2021

Contact: Chris Nelson, Technology Purchasing and Logistics Coordinator


The Guidelines for Requesting New Computers policy provides procedural detail for the timing and steps required to have a new computer assigned to an individual or department by the Information Technology team.


The bulk of detail on provisioning computers, including what is furnished by the Information Technology team and how devices are replaced, is covered in the Technology Hardware Procurement and Replacement Policy. This document deals specifically with the processes to follow in the event a new faculty, staff, or administrator is hired to the University, or when a new computer is needed for a special use. This document also addresses the means to submit requests for replacement computers, either for refresh or replacement of broken units.
