Computers, Printers, & Peripherals

The University has established contracts for several major brands of computers, printers, and peripherals.

Desktop and Laptop Standard Configurations

If your department has need for a desktop or laptop computer, first view the Dell standard configurations that have been developed by UTHSC Information Technology Services. These standard configurations offer special pricing and will meet most requirements for departmental computing. Purchases under $1500 can be made directly from Dell on your procurement card. If one of the standard configurations will not meet your specific needs, a computer can be selected from one of the computer contracts described below or by creating a Dell e-quote.

Purchasing Instructions

Ordering Process

All computer, printer, and peripheral purchases ordered under University contracts for $1500 or more must be ordered by using the UTHSC Computer Order Request Form and following the ordering instructions on that form.
