Continuing academic staff and fixed term academics (>2 years) are entitled to a University business standard laptop, with docking station and dual monitors. Specifications of this laptop are as per the details on the hardware purchasing page. This could be to replace a device in line with the 4-year replacement cycle, replace a device that is no longer fit for purpose or to replace a device which needs major repairs.
Staff who would like additional equipment, such as a docking station or monitor for home should look to use other funding sources available to them. If there is a requirement for your role to work remotely most of the time, support for funding towards this additional equipment may be negotiated with the Director of College Services and/or the Dean (People and Resources).
If you believe you require a replacement or new device, please obtain a quote as per the below instructions, complete an expenditure request form with your justification for needing the device and return to email@example.com. The expenditure request form can be obtained from this web page.
Please be aware if you are requesting a device other than the standard laptop to support your work, there may be a requirement to use other funding sources you are responsible for so ensure you have clearly identified your need for that device in the form.
Visit the hardware purchasing page and use the excel quote forms in the preferred desktop and laptop section. If none of the preferred computer options are suitable please submit a request via the online portal for a formal quote.
