Process Details:

After submitting your request, a member of the Provisioning team will contact you to confirm your request and discuss your needs. Once finalized, we will configure the system via SmartMart and assign a cart to the department for purchasing. It will be up to the department to confirm that the recommended machine will meet cost and usage criteria before submitting the order. Systems should be delivered to IRT (see address below). IRT Techs will image and encrypt the system before it is deployed to the end user. The standard images used by IRT include the latest Operating System version of Mac or Windows*, Microsoft Office and all software listed as Essential Stanford Software.

*Orders will include the cheapest iteration of the Windows Operating System as there is a no cost upgrade according to Stanford's Site license agreement.
