All of the hardware purchased for use by your company should be from reputable manufacturers and easily networked to existing hardware. The Technology Hardware Purchasing Policy includes guidelines for purchasing Desktop Computer Systems, Portable Computer Systems, Servers, Computer Peripherals, and Mobile Telephones. Inclusion of this policy in your company manual will help to eliminate overspending and confusion by providing clear hardware specifications, trusted brand names, and purchasing permission information.
This procedure can easily be customized by replacing the tokens in brackets with applicable information, and by adding or deleting included brands and information. You can further edit this procedure by adding sections for additional hardware that is necessary to your business.
The “Technology Hardware Purchasing Policy” is recommended to be included within the IT section of your Company Manual.
