MDUSD Technology Purchasing Standards

MDUSD has established standards for most technology purchases. Purchase of all items not on the list below must be approved by TIS. We recommend that you consult and inform your district-assigned technician about all potential technology purchases. TIS management is also happy to help you with all aspects of your technology decisions and purchases. Note that technology purchase requests may need to be submitted for board approval.

You can create a purchase request from any line item in this purchasing list. The vendor for these items is CDW-G. Their PEID is 052914.

Audio-Visual equipment

All AV equipment and installation, such as flat-screen displays, ActivBoards, etc., must be approved by TIS. Please open a Help Desk ticket to have TIS consult with you about your Audio-Visual needs.

Apple products

All Apple purchases must be approved by TIS. Please submit a TIS work order to discuss all Apple purchases with a TIS technician. Apple devices (including MacOS computers and iPads) are limited to classes that require them for specific curricular purposes, such as CTE art and digital media classes. Apple devices for staff use will not be supported after the 2022-23 school year except for specific curricular purposes. Apple TVs are no longer supported in MDUSD for compatibility reasons. Please see the purchasing catalog below for available casting options. 

A note on lead times

Due to COVID and increased global delays in shipping, product availability is currently limited and delivery times are substantially longer than usual. Orders for computers, printers, docking stations and other peripherals may take three to six months (or longer) to fulfill.
