Device & Accessory Purchasing Guidelines

Computers and specific peripheral devices should be purchased directly through ITS using the forms indicated below. However, most small office equipment and accessories can be purchased through Falcons Purch.

Please use the table below to determine the proper method for making your purchase.

If purchasing through Amazon you will receive he following message:

Certain technology purchases need to be made through the IT department. 

Please review the Device and Accessory Purchasing Guidelines here: https://www.bgsu.edu/its/support/udevice/device-accessory-purch.html

Please be sure to review the table on this page to ensure you are using the appropriate purchase process.

ITS does not have any available tablets, headphones, microphones, or cameras. Please submit a request to purchase tablets or cameras/microphones over $250. Due to high demand for these items, vendors have had difficulty supplying them, and ITS cannot guarantee items will be delivered within 15 business days. Almost all BGSU laptops deployed within the last six years have webcams and microphones that can be used if necessary.

Purchases requesting CARES funding must be submitted by 12/18/20. All CARES purchases require a business statement of purpose, regardless of the amount requested. All CARES purchases over $3500.00 require a business statement of purpose and a 2nd quote from a competitor. Please attach all requirements to the form submission as PDFs. Your request will not be processed without these pieces of required information.

All other purchases should be made through Falcons Purch.

Please review our Delivery of Equipment Purchased Through ITS article for more information about the delivery of purchased items.
