It is important that the procurement guide is adhered to when purchasing computer and telephone equipment. The procurement guide lists computers, printers, telephones and other equipment tested and validated by the IT Department. To ensure stable operations and effective support, the IT Department relies on equipment being standardised and compliant with our systems (cf. The IT Department's service declaration). This makes it important to adhere to the procurement guide.
UiB is obliged to follow national and EU procurement regulations. A central principle is competetive tendering. One of the advantages is an overall cost reduction for UiB. All purchasing of ICT equipment should follow the IT department's procurement guide in the UiB Intranet (Norwegian only). General information about procurement at UiB is found in UiB's procurement guide (Norwegian only). No purchases may be made outside of agreements.
