Technology Purchases


The Information Technology Acquisition Process (ITAP) ensures that all information technology (IT) resources purchased at Rowan University are compatible with existing technology and meet security requirements and regulations.

As part of this process, a team of IRT managers and staff review requests for any IT need, including software, hardware, IT consulting and IT services.

For more information, including instructions on submitting an ITAP request, review our "IT Acquisition Requests: Getting Started With ITAP" article.

ITAP Exclusions

The following items are excluded from ITAP:

  • Fewer than three Apple or Lenovo Rowan supported desktops/laptops
  • Tablet computers/iPads without cellular service activation (quantity of 5 or fewer)
    • Each iPad must be assigned to an individual faculty/staff member and this information must be noted on the purchase order for processing. There is no sharing of iPads per the iPad Use Policy.
    • If there is a request for departmental iPad sharing, the IT acquisition process must be followed.
  • If requesting an iPad with cellular service, you must first complete the iPad Cellular Data Activation Policy.
  • HP laserjet printers (any other make or model needs ITAP approval)
  • Monitors, keyboards, mice, hard drives, flash drives, cables and adapters
  • Projectors, scanners, fax/copy machines, digital cameras and camcorders


Order ITAP-Excluded Technology

To order any of the items excluded from ITAP, use our new online hardware catalog, which makes purchasing new computers and other hardware at Rowan University nearly as simple as ordering from Amazon.

You may access the new online system now by logging in to the IRT Support Portal at support.rowan.edu. For detailed instructions on how to use the new system, visit go.rowan.edu/hardware.

Note: We are no longer accepting requests for quotes via email. All such requests must now be submitted online through the support portal. Also, all technology purchased through the University’s trade-in cycle will continue to be ordered by Information Resources & Technology and not through the online system at the required time.


Suggested Software Vendors

You can order software from the suggested vendors below, but the University may have a site license for the software you want to purchase.

Before you place an order, call 856-256-4401 or email irt@rowan.edu for more information.
