There are several state contracts in place for IT-related items. The majority of orders for IT items should be initiated by an online requisition with a system-generated requisition number:

  1. Contact the IT Helpdesk Manager for a quote.
  2. Enter a requisition into Colleague, letting the system assign a number.
  3. Email the quote to Purchasing, referencing the requisition number.
  4. Once Purchasing receives notice that the requisition has received all necessary approvals, a purchase order will be processed and the order placed.

The majority of IT items should be ordered by Purchasing, but some "office supply" type items such a USB drives and wireless mice may be ordered by the department. To place these orders, Departments must do the following:

  1. Prior to placing the order, contact the IT Help Desk Manager with details about the desired order.
  2. The IT Help Desk Manager and the IT Director will work together to ensure the order meets IT requirements, then provide approval via email.
  3. Save the approval e-mail and forward it to Purchasing when entering the requisition, or keep it in the P-Card file.
  4. Follow the established procedures for placing the order via P-Card.
  5. Correctly utilize mandatory Statewide Contracts.
