Technology Purchase Deadline

  • April 15, 2014

The end of the Spring semester is fast approaching and is bringing us closer to the end of fiscal year 2014. To make certain that all technology purchase requests utilizing current fiscal year funds are fulfilled before the end of the budget year, Information Technology will stop processing technology equipment orders for fiscal year 2014 on Thursday, May 1st, 2014 at 5 p.m.


The ordering cut-off is necessary so that any equipment orders placed using current fiscal year funds are received in the current fiscal year and not billed to fiscal year 2015. We will do our best to make sure equipment is received before the end of May, but cannot guarantee delivery due to variable lead times. Please, order sooner than later to avoid any billing issues.  Be aware that orders received for technology related equipment after May 1st, 2014 will be processed in fiscal year 2015.  ***Please, email for all technology purchasing questions or requests.***
