If purchasing through Amazon you will receive a message stating you need approval for the purchase. To continue select the Submit for approval button.

ITS does not have any available tablets, headphones, microphones, or cameras.  Please submit a request to purchase tablets or cameras/microphones over $250.  Due to high demand for these items, vendors have had difficulty supplying them, and ITS cannot guarantee items will be delivered within 15 business days. Almost all BGSU laptops deployed within the last six years have webcams and microphones that can be used if necessary.

If you are intending to request CARES funding for your purchase, a business purpose and a minimum of two quotes from different competitors (please attach as PDFs) for purchases over $3500.00 are required.  Your request will not be processed without these pieces of required information.

All other purchases should be made through FalconsPurch

If you wish to purchase a device NOT listed above and have questions or concerns, please contact Information Technology Services at 419-372-0999 or through chat.
