Each year, the Department of Information Technology works with the Procurement Office to secure the best pricing available for high quality technology equipment. As part of the process, a preferred vendor is selected. In addition to pricing, the preferred vendor stocks the University standard equipment and agrees to provide the equipment in a timely fashion.

For the current academic year, the preferred vendor for desktop and laptop equipment is Lenovo (United States), Inc. For information or questions regarding the purchase of Lenovo equipment, contact the Asset Management Office at (973) 313-6181 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All purchases from Lenovo must be made using the University Purchase Order (PO) system. Once the PO is generated, the Procurement Office will automatically send a copy of the PO to Asset Management to be keyed into the online ordering system. All equipment will be shipped to the Asset Management Office. When the equipment arrives on campus, the Asset Management Office will contact the customer to pick up the laptop or open a service request and a technician will contact the customer for an appointment to deliver and set-up the equipment.
For the current academic year, the preferred vendor for printers is GovConnections. The Senior Account Manager is Mary Ellen Montplaisir. Ms. Montplaisir can be reach at 1-800-800-0019 extension 33422 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
Printer purchases do not need to go through the Asset Management Office. Purchases can be made directly with GovConnection. Most printers, excluding the large office printers, will ship directly to the customer. For assistance setting up the printer, please contact the TechnologyService Desk at (973) 275-2222 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
