We recognize that getting new IT equipment through UCSF Procurement is difficult and takes a while. That said, IT Procurement (eg, helping you get a new laptop) is an area that has been flagged for improvement: we need to negotiate better contracts and improve the purchasing process. We have the Procurement Work Group focusing solely on making this a more effective and user friendly transaction.
We recognize that we have to make it beneficial to you, as the client, to utilize the IT Tech Stores. We plan to create a central procurement/vendor management office to help all of UCSF (including the Medical Center) get the IT equipment they need.
