IT Purchases

Information Technology

Administration has approved the following updated IT purchasing policies:

  • All IT related purchases need to be reviewed by IT before the purchase is made or the PO is created.
  • UT Tyler is required to be in compliance with Texas Administrative Code Section 202 which establishes Information Security Standards.

This is necessary to assure our IT department can provide necessary support for the item and that the item will not compromise university data or resources. This includes any item that would need IT Support for installation or support such as software, apps, computers, laptops, tablets, monitors and any peripheral equipment such as keyboards, mice, web cams, headphones, printers, etc.

If non-approved purchases create security risks they will be removed from network access.

IT Purchases for University Use

To expedite this process, IT Support has created a Web page listing Standard Computing Devices, laptops, monitors, tablets, and various accessories that can be quickly quoted and approved for current pricing and processed.

The Standard Computer Accessories have been tested and can easily be supported by campus support personnel. The Web page provides links for the best price and instructions for purchasing without sales tax. Items on this list do not need a quote or approval and are fully supported by IT Support.

Should you need to purchase items not on the pre-approved list, you may send an email to to receive technical advice and cost comparisons to ensure best value and be advised of security or support issues.

Should you choose to purchase an item that is not approved, please note that IT Support will not be able to assist in the installation or support of the item.
