Department computer purchases best held until May

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.
