Department IT Purchases

Information Technology Requests

If you need to request or purchase equipment, software, contractors, professional services, or outsourcing:

  • That cost more than $300
  • That connect to the BYUH Network
  • Any kind of printer (even less than $300)

Please complete this form which will be reviewed by your CSR, IT Operations, and the University Information Officer. This approval process usually takes less than a week but must be completed before any credit card purchases are made.

After approval, these requests may be processed in one of two ways:

    1 - Any request over $1000 will be processed through OIT Business Support. This will ensure the proper account number is used and a purchase requisition is created. The PR is then forwarded to the CIO for final authorization before being sent to Purchasing for their action. Please be sure the proper funding and/or account is in place prior to requesting purchases.
    2 - Each department head and some employees carry a university purchasing card. This card is to be used when purchasing items less than $1000. The card is to be used in accordance with the established university policy governing its use. All transactions must be justified, reconciled, and reviewed.

REMEMBER: ALL IT purchases that meet the criteria above must be submitted for review and approval via an IT Request. Otherwise, if the item you wish to purchase:

  • costs less than $300
  • does NOT connect to the network
  • and is NOT a printer

After consulting with your CSR, you may use your Purchasing Card to procure the item without IT approval.
