Purchasing Order Cut-off Date

Posted on: No Comments

The end of the Spring semester is fast approaching and is bringing us closer to the end of fiscal year 2013. To make certain that all technology purchasing requests using current fiscal year funds are fulfilled before the end of the budget year, Information Technology will stop processing technology equipment orders for fiscal year 2013 on Wednesday, May 1st, 2013 at 5 p.m.

The 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 2014.  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 (some Apple computer orders are taking 4 to 6 weeks to receive).   Make sure to order sooner rather than later to avoid this issue.

***Please, email computerpurchasing@tcu.edu for all technology purchasing questions or requests.***

Be aware that orders received for technology related equipment after May 1, 2013 will be processed in fiscal year 2014.

Acquisitions Policy

Keep in mind that all computers, software, and other computer related technology purchases must be placed through the Information Technology purchasing department.  Technology purchases made outside of Information Technology cannot be put on the TCU network and can create support limitations for you and the product. The policy for Computer Technology Acquisitions can be found by visiting the following link:
