OU Computer Standardization Program


Effective January 1, 2019, all computers purchased for the University of Oklahoma Norman, Oklahoma City, and Tulsa Campuses must be selected from the approved computer standards list or receive approval as a non-standard computer equipment exception prior to purchase.

Per the policy, each employee is allowed one (1) desktop computer -OR- one (1) laptop with docking station and external monitor(s) as necessary. Additional computers for a single employee are subject to an exception request.

The following purchasing changes support OU’s transition to a standardized computing environment:

  • Leasing is no longer a procurement option
  • Computers should not be purchased on P-Cards
  • Financial Services will NOT reimburse for computers purchased with personal funds
