Information Technology Services and Contracting and Purchasing Services are recommending departments on campus postpone purchasing any new computers until May.

While campus departments may be looking to spend one-time funds in anticipation of FY12 budget challenges, the computer contract renewal and emerging thin client alternatives mean that the best decision could be made later in the year.

A contract award will be made with a vendor in May and ITS will offer suggested system configurations for those looking to purchase computers.

Contact Ricky Roberts at (928) 523-6950 with questions relating to the computer contract.
