Standard Configurations for Computers, Tablets, and Printers

The IITS Computer Refresh Program receives funds to purchase one computer per permanent employee once every four years. As such, each department is to provide its own printers, secondary monitors, additional cables, and/ or accessories. NOTE: the purchase of computer hardware as well as software media and licensing must be submitted via a Requisition/ Purchase Order — use of revolving cash forms will not be reimbursed. See Purchasing Manual guidelines, page 27.
