IS&T, Sourcing, the IT Partners, and Sustainability have adopted a set of networked printer standards. These standards have been selected after a formal Request for Proposal process, and have been adopted as policy by Boston University. The goals of the Printer Standards are:

  • Negotiated pricing on selected models
  • Reduced cost of consumables from approved vendor.
  • Improved support and management from your IT support.
  • Reduced energy costs by selection of EPEAT certified printers.

How to Purchase

  • BU Printer Standards are purchased through the GovConnection catalog in BUworks.
  • For model information, pricing, and and how to place a PO in BUworks, visit Sourcing & Procurement: Networked Printer Standards
