EWU IT supports several configurations for Windows Computers. This article will guide you through the process of selecting and starting the ordering process for one of these computers. 

  1. Visit the OETC webstore at to view the available options. If you are uncertain of the best fit for you, contact the IT Help Desk (509.359.2247, for additional assistance. 
    • You do not need an account with OETC to view the available options. An account is only needed by Purchasing Agents to initiate a quote and begin the purchase process.

  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 creates a quote through EWU’s OETC portal at:

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

  5. After the quote 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 that was referenced in step 4. 

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