Requisition Process

Technology Requisition Process

The demand for technology and technology-related services at College of the Mainland is increasing dramatically. As technology becomes more sophisticated and faculty, staff, and students become more sophisticated users, the cost of obtaining, supporting, and servicing technology is also increasing.

In an effort to better service COM, Information Technology Services has developed a standard equipment list. Standardizing on our technology purchases allows Information Technology Services to better obtain, support and service technology in your area.

Our goal is to provide technology and technology support that enables faculty, staff, and students to do their work, research, teaching and learning activities in the most effective and efficient manner. Given that the budget is not unlimited, we must attend to costs and attempt to limit the costs to available resources in the budget.

Purchasing Process

All purchases (except for consumables) for technology will be made through Information Technology Services (this includes grants and other organizations).

  • A purchase request signed by the appropriate personnel with the budget code you wish to use for the purchase and authorizing our department to make the purchase for you, should be sent to the Information Technology department. (A purchase request form attached)

All purchases for software will be made through Information Technology Services.

Purchase of Toner/Ink Cartridges

In an effort to expedite service and achieve the highest level of quality, your department should purchase technology related consumables directly from approved vendors.  Information Technology will not order and supply departments with consumables.  We truly appreciate all of your suggestions on how we can improve our process to better serve your needs.  Our goal is to truly surpass your expectations.
