Personal Computer Procurement Program (PCPP)

The PCPP is designed to facilitate the purchasing of "Personal Computers" which encompasses fixed sytems (desktops & workstations) and portable systems (laptops & tablets). The program includes consultation, order and delivery. PCPP is responsible for all desktop and laptop computer purchases for the U of M.

We work closely with the Information Technology Procurement Centre (ITPC) located at 125 University Centre & the "IST Service Desk" at 123 Fletcher Argue building.

For the purchase of enterprise equipment (e.g. servers) please contact the ITPC (204-474-6321).

Computers & accessories can be purchased via EPIC or directly on a FOAP.

To Order Apple Computers & Accessories via EPIC:

Apple products continue to be available at educational prices through the ITPC,  the detailed procedures can be found in this document (click here).

  1. Contact IST Service Desk to request information about purchasing Apple products, accessories or services. IST or the local Distributed IT Support specialist will consult with you and get a quote from Simply Computing.
  2. Create EPIC Purchase Request.
  3. Attach Simply Computing quote.
  4. Attach PC Commissioning Form (PCCF) to your EPIC PO (click here).
  5. Submit for Approval (note: EPIC approval will proceed as per standard process).
  6. A Cherwell ticket for the desk-side support analyst will be set up prior to delivery so they can coordinate set up with you and create a Cherwell asset entry.

An FAQ on the purchase and repair of Apple products can be found in this document (click here).
