Purchasing a Computer
Purchasing departmental computers or peripherals
Departments may use an online purchase requisition to purchase standard model computers outside of the Computer Refresh Program (CRP). To make a purchase, departments must create a quote (Dell) or proposal (Apple). EMU's Purchasing Department requires a copy of the quote or proposal in addition to the online purchase requisition.
Departments may also purchase computer peripherals (docking station, RAM, keyboard, hard drive, monitor) with a university PCard. Non-standard computer models must be pre-approved by the Director of Enterprise Support. For additional information, please contact Andrea Tanner via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Computers, laptops, and tablets cannot be purchased with the university Pcard (credit card). For more information, please contact Purchasing at 734-487-1200.
