User Liaison for Faculty and
Staff technical purchases.
While the name implies we are purchasing, all University
purchases were moved to the Seattle University purchasing team in 2014. Technical purchasing provides quotes for Seattle
University supported computer; laptops and monitors which you can print from
the links below. We can also work with our vendors to provide you unique quotes
for special requests.
Tablet and Nonstandard
Laptop Authorization Form *Non-standard
issue computers require CIO approval.
Tablet computers (e.g.
iPads, Surfaces, Netbooks, and Chromebooks) are consumer devices, which do not
live up to enterprise standards for security or device management. They are
generally not suitable as a user’s only computing device and would not replace
a desktop or laptop. Therefore, their cost is additive to University technology
costs. For these reasons, Information Technology Services (ITS) has not been
funded to purchase or support tablet computers.
Standard Quotes are workstation items supported by ITS, desktop
services team. Quotes for standard
computers and monitors can be printed from here.
