Hardware Services Guidelines:
All Baylor standards that are recommended by the Baylor Technology Procurement office will be provided full support from ITS repair shop. Spare parts and employee certifications for these products are maintained by ITS. The list of standard equipment is reviewed and updated as needed throughout the fiscal year.
If your department decides to purchase a non-standard hardware item, a support and security review through ITS will be required. The form can be found on the ITS website under the Help tab. If approved, the department will need to purchase 3 years of warranty service from the vendor for the non-standard product selected. Your department will also be required to contact the vendor directly to schedule any maintenance or repair services.
