Get your technology purchase approvals here
Information Technology Services has a simple way to purchase software, hardware and consulting services using this Approval Form. This form saves time on purchases valued at less than $5,000 because they no longer require review by PCPS.
Using this tool, you also can notify PCPS of purchases that will exceed $5,000. A PCPS staff member will contact you to advise whether any additional forms or legal review is required.
IT approval does NOT replace funding or budget approvals that occur within the unit or the Expert Business Office (EBO). The form generates an email listing approved purchases that you should submit with a purchase request or PCard documentation to the EBO.
Faculty, staff and students also can find information about free and significantly discounted software at the ITS Software Licensing site. The ITS approval form above is NOT needed for either purchases from that site, or for desktops, laptops and peripherals purchased from previously negotiated contracts Dell, Apple and CDWG.
