How to Buy Apple Computers
This commodity includes computers, peripherals, and software made by Apple Computer and purchased directly from that vendor.
Procurement Options and Procedures
- $10,000 or less: Goods- Submit a Purchase Requisition through the CU Marketplace.
- Above $10,000: Goods- Submit a Purchase Requisition through the CU Marketplace. A Sole Source Justification is also necessary to purchase goods over $10,000 (or over $5,000 when using federal funds).
It is no longer necessary to register or know your campus account number before placing an order with Apple. University employees with access to CU Marketplace can simply order through the Apple catalog.
Collegiate Purchase Program Agreement
According to the terms of the University's agreement with Apple, CU departments are required to purchase all Apple Computer equipment directly from the company. Apple, in turn, offers the University educational pricing. The educational pricing is reflected in the Apple catalog on the CU Marketplace. Apple does not allow resellers to sell Apple products to educational institutions. Shipping charges are included in the prices unless special air shipment is requested.
