Buying IT equipment

The IT Finance team are the University’s single provision for the procurement of IT related equipment and services. The service ensures that whilst providing for the IT needs of the University community, the following University objectives are also observed regardless of budget/funding used:

  • Ensure that the equipment purchased by the University is necessary, fit for purpose and cost efficient.
  • Value for money is achieved across the University, ensuring that the ongoing support costs as well as the initial purchase costs are considered.
  • Maintain an understanding of the University's IT equipment estate and spending.

Further information explaining the IT refresh policy, standard equipment and how to acquire new equipment can be found on the ITS webpages within the relevant Service Description for example the End User Computing Service Description.

If you have reviewed the Service Description and still want to purchase IT equipment, please refer to the IT Finance process on the How to Request IT Equipment page.
