Purchase of Nonstandard Hardware/SoftwareNonstandard Hardware. Departments must obtain approval for nonstandard equipment, including Macs. If nonstandard hardware is necessary for the business function, the department should submit a request following the request guidelines for nonstandard hardware. If the nonstandard equipment request is approved, the TechDesk purchases the hardware and issues a one-time charge to the department for the difference in price between the standard computing bundle and the nonstandard equipment.
