This article is a guide for faculty and staff to submit order requests for Apple computers and devices:

  1. Visit the Apple hardware that meets EWU's hardware standards solutions article for available options. 

  2. Notify your Purchasing Agent that you'd like to purchase a computer and present your selection. If you do not know who your Purchasing Agent is, reach out to your College Business Officer (CBO).

  3. The Purchasing Agent with "Proposer" or "Registered Proposer" permissions creates a Proposal at EWU’s Apple Store:

  4. After the Proposal has been created, the Purchasing Agent creates a Purchasing Service Request and IT Service Request.  
    • All laptop or desktop computer purchases must be paid with Purchase Orders only. Any peripherals (docks, cables, adapters) can be purchased with a PCard from Apple or other vendors as needed (Amazon, etc.)

  5. After the proposal is created, the Purchasing Department converts the proposal to an order and generates a PO number that will be used to track the order. 

  6. The Purchasing Agent will then enter the PO number into the IT Service Request

Note: If you are a Purchasing Agent and wish to purchase Apple computers or devices, please see the Purchasing guide for Apple computers and devices article.
