Laptop / Desktop PC / Display Procurement

Institutions of the RWTH Aachen can order hardware in various online portals. In the IT-Admin shop you can find standardized workstation computers, flat screen monitors and a small selection of laptops. This purchasing form is offered in addition to the existing methods. This eliminates the so-called "pink" order form and the necessity to perform a price comparison. However, the usual maximum purchasing limit of a gross EUR 5000 still applies. The rules for purchasing PC systems can be found in the procurement manual (internal!) for the RWTH.
