Computer Upgrade Program

The Computer Upgrade Program (CUP) is a centrally funded program designed to upgrade the computer equipment for UTK faculty and staff once every five years. Funding for the program is on an annual basis and is dependent each year on available resources.  Maximum reimbursement amounts are established for base desktops and notebooks for the Windows and Apple platforms. Approved faculty or staff members may choose to purchase one of these systems as configured or they can go to one of the university’s contract vendor websites and configure a custom system.  Reimbursement, however, is limited to the cost of the standard configurations quotes listed below.  Please note that the Windows PC standard configuration quotes now include 5 year warranties.
