Guidelines for Purchasing IT

Dell departmental bundles – To reduce costs on purchasing and support, DoIT’s Departmental Services Team negotiated savings on the following Dell computer and laptop bundles and accessories for the UW–Madison community. These models have robust customization options so your departments can pick exactly what you need for your users. 

For purchasing outside of DoIT, refer to the general UW-Madison purchasing guidelines.

Within DoIT, departmental purchases can be made several ways:

  • DoIT Numbers: Make your purchases using a single number assigned to account-specific funding information.
  • Funding strings: Account-specific numbers that can be used if a DoIT number is not an option. For information, contact DoIT Billing.
  • Purchase orders for non UW-Madison departments, state agencies or other entities can be sent to: DoIT Billing, 1210 W. Dayton Street, Madison, WI 53706.
  • Purchasing Cards (ProCards): VISA cards assigned to a UW employee and tied to University funding.
