Hardware policies

Each UNT System campus is financially responsible for its computer purchases. UNT IT Governance Technical Architecture Group (TAG) sets the standards for these purchases. IT Shared Services and TAG work together to procure the best prices for standard hardware.

Although each institution purchases separately, the UNT System participates in bulk procurement so that the best prices are made available to each campus.

UNT System Regulation 06.2000 Personal Computer and Tablet Computer Standardization states that computer hardware purchases must follow a standard configuration. Departments needing hardware outside of the recommended configuration must complete an Exception Request unless the purchase is an authorized variance.

Consult with your local IT support staff or campus helpdesk for questions about variances. This is to ensure that the hardware is compatible with our infrastructure and can be supported by local IT support.
