IT Computer Purchasing Policy

The purchasing of College-owned computers must be approved by Emerson IT. Emerson IT does extensive hardware testing to ensure that computers will function properly and meet our quality and security standards.

Emerson IT maintains a list of standard computer hardware that has been determined suitable for the Emerson College work environment and has obtained standing pricing for these models. Price quotes are not necessary for this hardware, and they can be purchased at any time.

Requests for non-standard hardware, i.e., items not on the standard list, can be made to the IT Help Desk at any time, and will be considered on an individual basis. If approved, price quotes will be obtained by IT through approved vendors.
