The Advancement Division has a centralized approach for purchasing/replacing primary computers (and basic accessories like mouse, keyboard, cables) for staff.

  • The funding will come from the CUF Budget rather than from individual department budgets.
  • This avoids departmental budgeting for non-annual and/or fluctuating expenditures.
  • The purchase of any non-standard equipment (e. g. wireless mouse and keyboard) will require approval by the respective area management, and the cost will be absorbed by the department.
  • This does not include additional/secondary computer equipment such as iPads.
  • Exceptions need supervisor’s approval and the department paying for any additional costs. 
  • Alumni Association may participate in terms of the replacement cycle (ordering, transferring data, etc.), but will be responsible for absorbing the costs.
  • Employees will be provided information regarding the replacement cycle for their computers and be notified one month in advance (excluding August) prior to of the replacement date 
  • Orders will occur quarterly throughout the fiscal year: August 1st, November 1st, February 1st, and May 1st


Darius Simmons is coordinator/primary contact for this process.
