The FY19 Computer Upgrade Program is now underway.
The Computer Upgrade Program (CUP) is a centrally funded program designed to upgrade the computer equipment for UTK faculty and staff once every four years. OIT works with Deans, Directors, and Department Heads to fulfill requests. If you believe you are eligible, contact your departmental representative for assistance.
Approved faculty or staff members may choose to purchase one of the program recommended configurations or configure a custom machine on one of the University’s contract vendor websites. Reimbursement for CUP purchases is limited to the cost of the standard configurations. This year’s standard configurations for both Windows and Apple machines are high-powered machines with solid-state drives, I7 processors, and include the 4-year warranties with accident care.
