Faculty & Staff: Act early to ensure Technology Purchases are in before the end of the Fiscal Year

Due to supply chain delays and processing time, LITS recommends that faculty and staff act early in April to ensure technology equipment purchases needed to support grant or departmental needs can arrive in time to be processed in this fiscal year. 

Financial Services requires purchases to arrive* prior to July 1, 2023 in order to be charged in the current fiscal year. Just being ordered prior to July 1, 2023 is not sufficient. 

*Shipping times for some equipment can be 2-12 weeks. 


  • Faculty are encouraged to be in contact with the Provost’s office regarding any approvals needed for use of department or research funds. 
  • Staff are encouraged to be in contact with their department head regarding any approvals needed for use of department funds.

Need help deciding what to order?

If you want to talk to someone about what would be a good fit for you prior to submitting your request, contact the Technology Help Desk and we’ll put you in touch with our Computer Purchasing team. Keep in mind that time spent consulting will shorten the window for your item to be ordered, ship, and arrive on campus prior to July 1st. 

Attention Windows Users!

Please note that starting in June 2023 all new and replacement Windows computers for individual faculty and staff will be deployed with Windows 11. Read more about what this will mean for you.
