IT Purchasing Process

Dell, HP, Lenovo, and Apple are providers of standard computer and peripheral equipment. Dell, HP and Lenovo equipment can be purchased directly through eProcurment. Apple equipment requires a different process. The links to Dell, HP, Lenovo, Apple, and Ricoh on this website are provided so that you can determine the equipment, configurations, and supplies that you need.

The process of purchasing these items takes place through eProcurment, which is administered by Georgia Southern University Procurement and Logistical Services.

Purchasing Apple Products

If you want to order an Apple product you should first get a proposal from your Technical Services Manager. Once you have the proposal you may enter it as a special request within ePro (see link below for more information about ePro).
