This article is a guide for Purchasing Agents to submit orders for Apple computers and devices:

  1. Visit EWU's Apple Store at and sign in with your Apple ID that is configured as a "Proposer" or "Registered Proposer".
  2. You will see a listing of approved computers in the "Recommended for you" section. Click Buy Now for computer(s) you want to purchase.

  3. Select all items (computer, warranty, adapter with laptops, etc) by clicking the check box at top of list (or individual check boxes).  Click Add to Cart.

  4. After adding to Cart, if you need to make any changes to hardware specs (RAM, hard drive size, etc), click the CONFIGURE link, located in computer details.  After making changes, click UPDATE.

  5. Create a Proposal. To do this, click the Create Proposal link.  IMPORTANT: While filling out proposal details, you must include the name(s) of people receiving computer(s) in the Proposal Comments field. When you are done, click Submit Proposal.

  6. Create a Purchasing Requisition Notification request and attach the proposal from step 5 to the Service Request. 

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

  8. 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 7 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 Apple computers or devices, please see the Order guide for purchasing Apple computers and devices article.
