Departmental Configuration for Computers
This information applies to departments purchasing systems for the university’s use. ITS has developed standards for systems and a list of recommended systems. You are encouraged to use this information when making a purchase decision, and we also recommend a three-year warranty. Departments can make purchases at Patriot Tech for up to $30,000 without further approval or entry in eVA. Please contact Patriot Tech at (703) 993-4100 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on which systems would be best for your department.
University Administrative Policy #2106 sets forth the policy for the acquisition of all goods and services for the University. The laws and regulations governing University purchases apply to all University departments, activities, and funds, regardless of the source of funds.
Departments may make purchases not to exceed $30,000 per request. All requisitions submitted together are considered a single request and their combined total may not exceed $30,000. To make a purchase, complete a standard University requisition form. Requests must be signed by authorized individuals and signature cards must be on file. Sponsored Programs must approve requests over $5,000. Limited Purchase Orders are reserved for outside vendors and should not be submitted to Patriot Tech.
