A look inside the ITS department

It’s the new budget year which means UNB is buying new tech gear! But it also means ITS is busy processing both old and newly purchased IT equipment – like computers, printers, software, etc.

On average ITS Procurement sees 51 requests a week, but since May 1 we have seen a 127% jump, averaging of 116 requests a week, and we check every single purchase to make sure they are working properly before we release them to you.

This increase in purchases means non-urgent requests can expect upwards of a week’s delay on response time. If urgent, please be sure to indicate it in your request.
