Delays Expected in IT Equipment Purchasing

Global shortages in technology components used to build hardware, is resulting in delays from 90 to 180 days for ordering new IT equipment. This is affecting equipment such as laptops, docking stations and monitors. If you anticipate needing new equipment for the upcoming months for new hires and/or to accommodate hybrid working arrangements, please submit a ticket to UBC Self-Service Portal as soon as possible. We will do our best to accommodate your order. For faculties and units ordering five or more units of equipment, please contact your Client Services Manager.
