This article is a guide for Purchasing Agents to submit orders for Windows computers and devices.

  1. Visit the OETC webstore at and sign into your OETC account. 
  2. You will see a list of approved computers and accessories. Click on items you want to order and Add to Cart.

  3. After adding computers and/or accessories to your cart, click the Send/Print link and email the quote to yourself.

  4. Create a Purchasing Requisition Notification and attach the quote from step 3.

  5. The Purchasing Department receives the Purchasing Requisition Notification and converts the quote to an order then generates a PO number that will be used to track the order. 

  6. Using one of the two requests listed below, create an IT Service Request for the purchase. Note: It is very important to add the PO number from step 5 to the Service Request that you are about to create.
    • If the hardware being ordered is assigned to a specific person, use the Computer Hardware Purchase (Individual) service request.


    • If the hardware being ordered is for a classroom, lab or other location where the hardware is not assigned to a specific individual, use the Bulk Computer Hardware Purchase service request. 

      Note: It is very important to create a separate service request for reach person receiving computer hardware. No exceptions. 

Note: If you are not a Purchasing Agent and wish to submit an order for Windows computers or devices, please see the Order guide for purchasing Windows computers and devices through OETC article.
