Can I Request an Exception?

The exception process is intended to serve specific teaching, research, and clinical needs that cannot be met by our current offerings. Exceptions based on preference will be denied.

At a minimum, exceptions are approved by your department's financial approver and executive leadership, as well as IT. Regular reports of exception approvals will be provided to the computer standardization oversight committee, CFO, and University President. 

Exceptions...

  • Are intended to serve specific teaching and research needs that cannot be met by our current offerings
  • Based on preference will be denied
  • At a minimum, are approved by your department's senior financial approver and Executive Leadership, as well as IT
  • Reports will be provided to the computer standardization oversight committee, CFO, and University President

Exception requests that meet the following criteria will be given priority:

  • Manufacturer is one of the standard computer vendors: Dell or Apple
  • Computer is enterprise-class, not consumer-class device
  • The computer will successfully utilize all university-defined security requirements
  • The expected life of the device in the planned business environment is at least 3 years
  • The computer has been reviewed by departmental technical support 

Exception Request Forms:

When asking for an exception, IT may reject your request and offer an alternative from our approved vendors. The alternative offered may be more expensive. From an enterprise viewpoint, lowest price on a non-standard model equates to higher costs as it relates to business processes, IT support, and other management tools. When we remain in a product set from approved vendors these costs are mitigated.
