Lenovo is experiencing supply constraints for many models of laptops, and some desktops, until June 2021.

We will do our best to process your new computers as soon as they arrive at EWU!

Thank you for your patience.

EWU is transitioning from CDWG to OETC for new computer hardware purchases.  During this transition time, CDWG remains a valid purchasing option.

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 order to client delivery/setup. Processing time may vary based on product availability, shipping times, and volume of hardware being received.

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 will place the order through EWU’s OETC portal at: https://ewu.oetc.org

  4. After the order has been placed, the purchasing agent creates a Service Request.

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