Summary of Technology Purchasing Procedures

All technology purchases over $100 must go through the Office of Technology Services (OTS).

Technology Services has standard configurations for Apple and PC laptops and desktops provided to users. OTS will also provide a docking station. Any other accessories, including monitors, must be funded out of departmental funds. In cases where the standard configuration does not meet the needs of the end user, Technology Services will work with them to identify a computer that meets both their needs and Loyola’s security and support requirements. Technology Services will fund up to $1,200 for such a computer, and the department is required to fund any additional costs.

Any software or cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) purchases must be done in consultation with Technology Services. OTS can be reached at

All purchases must be made through Technology Services. Employees are not permitted to make technology purchases on their Loyola procurement cards, on personal cards with the expectation of reimbursement, or through HoundMart, without consulting with Technology Services. Devices purchased outside of standard purchasing procedure will not be funded or supported by Technology Services and may not get access to certain Loyola resources.
