ITS provides an advisory and purchasing service for the procurement of ICT related products and services, and provides an IT Asset Management service for the University.
Some ICT consumable items can be purchased directly through Unimarket (see below), or via the PB Tech Support Centre on the Hamilton campus.
All your other ICT needs can be requested through Kuhukuhu.
Purchasing ICT Equipment
ICT equipment is purchased using one of two budget types - Operating (Opex) or Capital (Capex).
For ICT Capex equipment, purchasing is coordinated by and bought through ITS and includes new or replacement computers, and the ‘bundle’ of equipment procured for a new staff member.
Purchasing ICT Consumable Items (using Opex)
Please ensure that you gain appropriate authority to spend on the account code from your Cost Centre Manager prior to ordering in Unimarket.
A range of general consumable ICT items can be purchased directly through Unimarket using the PB Tech roundtrip function by staff themselves using approved departmental operational account codes.
Or can be purchased using your University PCard from the PB Tech Support Centre on the Hamilton campus.
