Technology Purchases with an Authorized Reseller

Equipment Updates

Due to global supply chain issues, the receipt of technology equipment is significantly delayed. Individual departments will assess equipment needs on a case-by-case basis. Visit the Workplace Guidance FAQs page for more information about the provision of equipment as it relates to work flexibility.

Yale desktops and laptops must be purchased through the University and delivered to campus. This ensures that your data is protected, through the use of antivirus software and encryption technologies. Additionally, devices are configured to meet Yale’s Minimum Security Standards (MSS). 

When you are ready to make a purchase, please contact your designated IT support provider, who can walk you through the process and answer any questions. Secure loaner laptops may be available for use until your new device is ready. If you recently purchased equipment and are unsure if your device meets Yale’s MSS (many devices available through consumer retail stores cannot meet these standards), please contact the Help Desk for assistance with an evaluation. As needed, you may be referred to your designated IT support provider.

Peripherals and accessories, including tablets, iPads, monitors, cables, mice, keyboards, cameras, headsets, and more should be delivered to campus. These items do not require configuration. For additional operational guidance, review Workplace Guidance FAQs.

The average order fulfillment duration for Lenovo and Apple laptops is unpredictable and significantly delayed due to global supply chain issues. Yale Procurement, Information Technology, and suppliers are working together to identify new sources and reduce wait time.
