Hardware Procurement


UFV standard hardware such as a computer, laptop and/or monitors, is requested through IT Services.  Computer peripherals (mouse, keyboard) for campus use may be outsourced for purchase.  IT Services should be consulted prior to peripheral purchase to confirm that the device is compatible with UFV standard computing equipment and/or network infrastructure.

Computer Refresh Program

IT Services allocates and supports new computer hardware in a 4-year cycle for all full-time, permanent UFV employees (100% full-time).  Sessional Faculty and/or shared, temporary staff computers are not included in the refresh program, each department is responsible allocating funds from their budget (capital hardware) for these positions.  Only Department Heads, Deans, Directors, or Department Assistants can request hardware from the Computer Refresh Program on behalf of the employee.

Please contact the IT Deployment Coordinator for current schedule information.
