Computer Bulk Buy Discounts

OIT's Spring Bulk Buy Event

 

OIT kicked off the FY22 Bulk Buy Computer Order purchase program March 16-April 1, 2022. During this time UAF departments, UAF community campuses, and system office departments, located in Fairbanks and Anchorage, had the opportunity to purchase Dell computers, laptops and monitors at highly discounted prices.  Visit this site early next spring for a preview of FY23 Bulk Buy offerings. The Bulk Buy window will likely open sometime in mid-March 2023.

Year-Round Dell Laptop Discounts for Departments

 

**We apologize for the inconvenience, but OIT is not currently accepting backstock requests at this time due to re-stocking complications. This site will be updated as soon as the backstock is available.**

Discounted pricing is typically available  year-round on OIT's recommended Dell laptop through the Bulk Buy program. Although OIT recommends planned purchases of computers during the annual Bulk Buy each spring,  there is a recognized need to purchase computers outside of the Bulk Buy window,  so OIT tries to  maintain a backstock on campus of pre-configured Dell laptops, allowing for minimal customer downtime.
