Laptops, desktops, workstations, monitors and/or docks are currently experiencing supply constraints. Shipping ETAs are 3-6 months. If you need hardware sooner, please contact your IT Coordinator. 

EWU IT has developed a collection of pre-approved enterprise level computer hardware that is supported by IT. Below is a best practice guide. The goal is a 2-4 week turn-around time from item(s) arriving at EWU to client delivery/setup. Processing time may vary based on product availability, shipping times, and volume of hardware being received.  Please send suggested edits to Jack Dechenne, jdechenne@ewu.edu or Carl Combs, ccombs@ewu.edu, with goal of continual improvement!

Overview:

  1. Determine which hardware will best meet your needs by talking with your IT Coordinator, or contacting the HelpDesk (helpdesk@ewu.edu, 359-2247). A quick reference list of computers and accessories that meet EWU hardware standards, and are supported by IT, are listed further below, and at https://ewu.oetc.org

  2. Notify your purchasing agent as to the type of computer hardware you would like to order.

  3. The designated purchasing agent creates a quote through EWU’s OETC portal at: https://ewu.oetc.org

  4. After the Quote has been created and email'd to Purchasing Department, the purchasing agent creates a PR and creates an IT Service Request.  All laptop or desktop computer purchases must be paid with Purchase Orders only. Any peripherals (dongles, cables, adapters, etc) can be purchased with a P-card from other vendors as needed (Amazon, etc).

  5. After the PO is created, either the purchasing agent or OETC sales converts the Quote to an order, and enters the actual PO# in the order.

Please contact your IT Coordinator or the Help Desk if you need further assistance (HelpDesk@ewu.edu) or 509-359-2247.
