New UWM IT Procurement Practice

UWM has a new practice relating to IT procurement. To best address the campus’ growing information technology needs, all information technology-related procurement requests will go through the same standardized process to determine the best route for the purchase. 

This new streamlined process gives the campus a single place to go for IT purchasing. 

Examples of IT purchases include:

  • Laptops, desktops, tablets 
  • Software that isn’t offered through the UWM Software Shop 
  • Audiovisual technology 
  • Monitors, stands, and other accessories 
  • Enterprise or cloud-hosted software 
  • Other items: if you aren’t quite sure, please just select “other” or “ask a question” and let us know about your inquiry. 

The Purchase Request form for IT purchases can be found here:

Once submitted, a Procurement Analyst from Campus Technology Support will contact you to discuss the request. During the review process a team of purchasing, information security, and IT specialists will review the request under the guidelines set forth in the UWM IT Procurement Practice.
