1. Supplies

Department members are strongly encouraged to order office supplies and technology products through Bryan Cook. Furniture and other equipment must be purchased with the Procard. Please see Julie Kniseley for Procard purchases. A list of disallowed purchases and vendors can be found in the Procard Policies and Guidelines.

The University has a standing contract with Office Depot and is unable to reimburse office supply purchases made with other vendors.  Please use the online Office Depot catalog for product numbers when making requests so staff can be sure to get exactly what is needed.

Computer, monitor, printer, other hardware, and software purchase requests must be cleared first with Julie Kniseley or Bryan Cook. All purchases must be approved before purchase. Most computer products are purchased from the Campus Computer Store through UT Market. Please use the online Campus Computer Store catalog for product numbers when making requests so staff can be sure to get exactly what is needed. Typical turn-around time is 1 week, but a 2-week or more (as far in advance as possible) lead is recommended. Computers purchased on University funds are University property and must be tagged for inventory by inventory staff, even if purchased with research grant funds. Limited computer and computer-related purchases may be possible with a Procard, but again these must be cleared with Julie Kniseley prior to purchase to ensure University policy compliance.
