IT Services Policies



In a proactive effort to be wise stewards of University resources, the Information Technology Services (IT Services) unit has negotiated numerous purchasing agreements with software and hardware vendors, service agencies, multimedia companies, network vendors, software developers and more. These agreements ensure the University not only the best price for our information technology needs, but quality service as well.

In order to take advantage of these contracts and ensure purchases meet University standards, IT Services must be involved in all information technology related purchases. Therefore, any faculty or staff member needing technology MUST make their purchase through IT Services. The University WILL NOT reimburse the purchase of any technology related item unless that purchase was made through and/or with the knowledge and approval of IT Services.


Only equipment that works well within the University’s information technology infrastructure is useful to the University. Equipment that does not meet standards can actually cost the University in support and/or cause significant reliability issues.

Therefore, equipment which is donated to the University must meet or exceed current IT Services standards. Equipment that does not meet these standards will not be accepted for donation. If a faculty, staff, student or friend of the University wishes to donate equipment, IT Services should be contacted. Once the equipment is approved, it can be dropped off at the IT Services helpdesk.

To make a request to purchase or donate an information technology related item, simply contact the helpdesk via OASIS, at (404)364-8518 or helpdesk@oglethorpe.edu.
