FAQ - IT Services

What do I do if I want to buy software/hardware?

The ITS centralizes all requests from AUP departments and staff. Our team may analyze them and offer you alternatives to meet your needs. We then make an order, insure material reception and then transmit it to you. The budget concerned is either the ITS's or your department's, depending on your needs.

You first have to fill out a form (for hardware or software) You have to contact us in advance and before the semester you will use the material.
The ITS Team can also advise you on hardware and software based on your needs, projects and financial means. You may then choose who your provider will be. We usually use Amazon, Loca-Images and Mico.
