Volume Purchasing for Computers & Devices

This is only available to Faculty and Staff who are purchasing on behalf of their School or Department.  Personal purchases are not included in our volume purchasing program.

CAIT is happy to facilitate monthly institute-wide computer and devices purchases.  We are hopeful that this volume purchasing method will encourage greater planning, budgeting, and effective use of technology throughout the Institute.

For immediate or unexpected technology needs, like new hires or projects, CAIT maintains a small fleet of spare computers and devices that can be temporarily put into service while we wait for the next purchase to take place.

To have your school or departmental purchases included please submit a CAIT ticket with the items you are interested in and an account number.


We encourage all schools and departments, even those not under full CAIT support, to send purchases through the ticket system to leverage the Institute purchasing power.  

Please note, however, that purchasing through IT does not confer IT support to those devices or computers.  IT purchasing and support depend entirely on our existing policy structure.
