Technology Standards

To make the most efficient use of university resources, all desktop and laptop computers acquired by the College of Medicine Phoenix will be based on standard configurations. These standards allow Information Technology Services (ITS) to provide more efficient support for the college, efficient acquisition, and the most cost-effective pricing available.

These standards include both Dell and Apple platforms. There is at least one desktop and one laptop model available for each platform.

The standards can be found here: Computer Standards (

*Departments with needs not met by the standard configurations can request a variance in writing to Information Technology Services. ITS will conduct a review of the specifications and confer with the department to determine the best course of action. ITS will work with the department to address the needs identified in the request.

In order to purchase any hardware, a IT hardware purchase service desk request will be required. You can complete this ticket by going to Service desk and selecting the appropriate template.
