Hardware Procurement Request

If your hardware is broken or malfunctioning please submit an Incident Ticket.

The worldwide shortage of computer chips continues. It is causing delays in shipping and an increase in pricing as well as issues keeping computers and peripherals in stock.

Hardware Procurement Request

The ITS procurement office purchases computers and their peripherals for the University of Idaho. Computer standards are reviewed throughout the year and updated as needed. Standards are set to meet the anticipated requirements for the next 4 years without degradation of performance. Standard Windows computers and peripherals are purchased in bulk to reduce cost and for quick deployment. There are times this is not possible during computer and/or part shortages. 

Every computer purchased meets the U of I ITS standards. All computers are purchased with a 4-year on-site warranty with laptops also getting accidental damage protection (ADP) for Windows systems and a 4-year AppleCare+ warranty with limited accidental damage protection.

Many models can be modified to meet specific requirements (more RAM, larger storage capacity). Make sure to mention your requirements in the New Hardware Procurement request and your TSP or Local Support team will work with you.

Common Computer: This system meets most needs across the university including using common Microsoft Office applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Teams, SharePoint, etc.), Banner, web-based applications, web browsing, and many Adobe products including Acrobat Pro. Laptops include options for docking stations and monitors.

Enhanced Computer: This system provides more resources than the Common Computer. Example usage includes video editing of large files and analyzing large data sets that require additional resources including memory, hard drive size, discrete video card, and processor performance. Laptops include options for docking stations and monitors.

High-Performance Computer: Typically these are non-standard requests and require justification for purchasing outside the standard offerings. TSP/Local Support teams will consult with you to gather requirements to help specify a model and get a quote. Example usage includes research needs analyzing very large data sets and complex computations that may require high-end processors and/or discrete video/graphics cards. Laptops include options for docking stations and monitors.

Mobility Laptop: This system is for positions that travel or are going from one meeting to the next. They have the same specifications as Standard Computer but tend to have a smaller screen size, are lighter, and/or have longer battery life.
