Purchasing IT equipment - IT Services for staff - University of Derby

Purchasing IT equipment

IT Services provides a purchasing service for IT, AV and telecommunications equipment for all members of staff at the University. Most purchases made are installed and supported by our Field Support and Help Desk Teams.

The service works in accordance with the University Purchasing Policies and Regulations and unless IT Services has granted authorisation to purchase directly from a supplier, all departments and colleges are bound to purchase through IT.

IT Services will ensure best value for money on IT related procurement and ensure that all purchases are compatible, secure and supportable. We will be able to advise you on appropriate hardware for use within the University environment.  Please keep in mind that there may be implications for individuals who wish to use bespoke solutions.  All quotes and purchase requests made, are subject to faculty/department approval.
