Campus-wide Hardware Procurement Program

Information Technology Services (ITS) will begin offering limited support for the Microsoft Surface Pro for UNCG faculty and staff starting May 1, 2017. (See Microsoft Surface specifications.)

Before you buy: Be sure to read the FAQ "Are Microsoft Surface devices offered and supported" for important points to consider before making a purchase decision (e.g. you will need to send the device to a repair center for any necessary repairs).

In December 2007, UNCG's Executive Staff, with input from the Dean's Council, directed Information Technology Services (ITS) to implement a UNCG Campus-wide Hardware Procurement program. This ITS-managed Program includes hardware savings for departments based on UNCG-negotiated discounts, better hardware management through central receiving and inventory of program equipment, expedited support for program equipment, and enhanced data security through lifecycle management.

The Campus-wide Hardware Procurement (CHP) program provides UNCG purchasers the opportunity to Purchase new Business class computer equipment at attractive prices based on volume discounts provided by Vendor(s). Save Money! In addition, UNCG benefits by having standardized hardware, an improved inventory collection, and an improved Support relation with Vendor(s), for example, stocked parts, service loaner machines, and Factory software loading ("imaging"). Save Time!
