IT Volume Purchasing

The IT Volume Purchase Standards Workgroup – an interagency work group of chief information officers (or their designees) – has established standard configurations for desktop, laptop and tablet computers to help achieve cost savings and procurement efficiencies, as authorized under Senate Bill 911.

Each year, the N.C. Department of Information Technology’s Statewide IT Procurement Office issues a competitive solicitation for the IT volume purchase to the awarded vendors on State Term Contract 204A. The award is made in accordance with “best value” procurement rules, as defined in 09 NCAC 06B.

Standard configurations are then updated and posted here to the IT volume purchasing website.  Pricing is valid for a minimum period of one year from the award date.  

For more information, view the procedures for bulk purchases.
