Purchasing Technology for the College

  • All computer technology purchases at Catawba College must be approved by and placed by the Information Technology department. Centralized technology purchasing is essential for inventory tracking and software license tracking, to insure the college gets the best price, and to insure that what is purchased is a good fit with the existing hardware and software infrastructure of the College. Departments that are considering a technology solution should involve our office as soon as possible. We can help define the solution requirements accurately, help identify and evaluate alternatives, and facilitate project installation, in addition to doing price negotiations and purchasing.

  • Academic Purchasing        
    Academic departments should contact Richard Kolbasowski or create an IT Service Request to begin this process.

  • Administrative Purchasing
    Administrative departments should contact Doug Stanley or create an IT Service Request to begin this process. 


Replacement Policy for College Computer Equipment
As a matter of policy, Catawba College will replace basic technology equipment on a three-to-five year cycle, based on the recommendations of the Information Technology staff with regard to advancements in technology during such a cycle and on the availability of funding.
