About This Commodity
Computer Supplies & Equipment (includes cables, keyboards, mice, monitors, desktop computer cameras, etc.) should be purchased from a contracted supplier through Show Me Shop whenever possible. Purchases outside of Show Me Shop and less than $5,000 may be purchased using the University One Card with PRIOR approval. Purchases between $5,000 and $10,000 require a PeopleSoft Requisition.
Purchases over $10,000 require a minimum of three competitive quotes, or written bid requests with detailed specifications prepared by UM Procurement. If you will be making several small purchases, and the total amount will exceed $10,000 in a 12-month period, a competitively bid contract may be appropriate. Contact the Strategic Sourcing Specialist listed for assistance.
Documents requiring a signature or with terms and conditions MUST be submitted to UM Procurement for signature by an Authorized University representative PRIOR to acquisition of goods or services. Signatures by an individual department are prohibited.
All laptop and desktop computers purchased for the use by campus personnel or using campus funds should meet the recommended purchase standards and have IT approval. See University Policy 12004.
