Purchasing University Computers and Equipment
Beginning in January 2017, departmental computer equipment will be purchased through the BuyUSI application. This eliminates the charge-back process.
Employees authorized to use BuyUSI, can login to myUSI and click on the BuyUSI icon. Computer equipment can be found by clicking on the Dell icon.
Computers for official use at USI can be purchased through the BuyUSI program. If you are planning to purchase a new computer for your office or department, please refer to the descriptions below to select the most appropriate model for your needs. The IT department has selected these computer options as the Institutional Standard. If you want/need a non-standard computer system, please contact the IT department before you order. A non-standard computer system may have limited on-site support and may incur vendor based support fees. If you would like to see these items prior to ordering - come to the IT Helpdesk and ask for the "shopping cart".
