Technology Purchasing Procedures

The University realizes many benefits, including better pricing, support and service from our vendors, and lower total cost of ownership, by following established technology procedures.
For these reasons these procedures must be applied to all purchases of technology hardware and software regardless of the source of funding.

IT Purchasing, a department of Georgia Southern’s Information Technology Services, is responsible for vetting technology purchases for the University community.

For reference: “technology” includes any component that attaches to the campus network, stores data, electronically controls something, or performs computations.

Approval is gained in one of two ways:

  • Purchasing technology that meet pre-approved standards via eProcurement
  • Following the specified approval process to purchase non-standard technology
