Departmental Printer Purchase
Each academic year the Committee on Institutional Technology Strategy (CITS), standardizes on both a B/W and Color Laser printer model that becomes the preferred choices for the campus to use.
On a quarterly basis, Purchasing will solicit quotes through the IT Umbrella Contract process. Each quarter, the new winning vendor information (vendor name and contract reference #) will be posted to the website.
Below are quotes which must be used by departments and attached to a requisition which then can be applied to a purchase order. All equipment is to be shipped to the corresponding School Tech assigned to your specific department or school so it can be configured and inventoried. They will then communicate with the department/individual for installation.
B/W Laser Printer
Color Color Laser, All-in-Ones and Large format printers, fall into the category of "Non-Standard Printers". You will need to contact the School Tech assigned to your specific department or school for purchasing advice and solutions. They will be able to help you determine the best choice suited for your needs. A custom quote needs to be requested and generated by one of the Information Technology staff.
This can be accomplished by filling out the Custom Computer/Printer Hardware Request form.
