Technology Purchases


All University technology-related purchases are made through Information Services to ensure compatibility with current systems and support programs. Our partnerships with major vendors and resellers enable us to handle purchases quickly and efficiently. We assist individuals and departments with University-related technology purchases by:

  • Assessing needs and recommending hardware and software
  • Ordering equipment and arranging installations
  • Coordinating vendor discounts
  • Managing licensing agreements

Standard Systems

Each year the University configures a set of standard laptop and desktop systems for faculty and staff. Go to 2020 Featured Systems for additional information.

Off-Cycle Budget Requests

Requests for technology-related hardware and software purchases outside of the normal annual budget cycle may be submitted using the Off-Cycle Budget Request form. Requests are reviewed monthly.

Contact Drew Parrish at drewparrish@depauw.edu or (765) 658-4296 with questions or to discuss a computer request.
