IT Purchasing:

  • Service Description:

    • The NEC is required to review and approve all IT hardware and software purchases on the installation. Requests that exceed the $3K threshold must be submitted as a Purchase Request (PR) in the Acquiline system supported by the Directorate of Contracting, and must be routed through the "NEC IT" group for approval. The approval process ensures that the requested items fit the installation architecture, that there is a valid justification, and that the equipment will be used for authorized government functions.
    • PC purchases are required to be made through the Computer, Hardware, Enterprise Software and Solutions (CHESS) Consolidated Buy (CB) process (https://ascp.monmouth.army.mil/scp/cb/cb_index.jsp). Organizations with requirements for computer configurations not found within the CB may request an exception to policy.
