If you need any advice on purchasing AV or IT items please contact the IT Helpdesk and we will assist you with your purchase.

Information Services has specified two standard configurations for computers:

  • standard desktop
  • standard laptop

In general departments should restrict purchases to these standard configurations because they are considerably cheaper than non-standard equipment and Information Services is able to offer higher levels of service for them.

All purchase requests should be logged via the New Computer request on My Service portal.

Where non-standard configurations are essential a business case must be included on the New Computer request form.  Your business case must include detailed information as to why your work cannot be carried out on a standard configuration model.

Macintosh computers and second computers of any type also need a business case. The 'Computer Setup' web form explains what information is required according to your purchase request.
