The University tenders (under the EU tendering procedures) for the supply of PC's.

Tenders are awarded according to the economically most advantageous tender taking account of the ability to meet the contract requirements. These requirements include:

  • price (including on-going cost of support),
  • performance,
  • availability of other PC configurations,
  • proven track record of consistent delivery of competitively priced computers,
  • quality of product (robust, reliable and require minimal service/repair),
  • suitability for use,
  • after-sales service,
  • technical back-up and support.

The 7 Universites and some IoTs, collectively known as the HEC, supervised by the Shannon Consortium with technical input from the IT Division in UL conducted a drawdown from the Government's PC Framework in Feb 11. After a rigourous competition a single supplier, Dell, was selected as supplier to all members of the HEC including the University of Limerick.
