Equipment Procurement

When a need is identified for the procurement of IT-related products, the CVM IT Unit should be contacted for guidance.  This includes, but is not limited to, computers, printers, networked lab instruments, any devices which use the wireless network, etc.  This policy ensures that such purchases will be made with appropriate knowledge and attention to important factors such as security, available resources, IT purchasing/licensing contracts and technical suitability to function.  This policy is in line with the “Information Technology & Telecommunications Purchases” requirements under University System policy available here: http://www.umsystem.edu/ums/rules/bpm/bpm1200/manual_1204 .
