Create an Account for Departmental Purchases at the Online Central Tech Store

Description

The online Central Tech Store is the virtual location for placing technology device and accessory orders at UCO. Individuals can purchase personal devices, accessories, equipment and more from a variety of vendors like Microsoft, Apple, Dell and more. Departments will also have the ability to make purchases at the online Tech Store for departmental purposes using their cards. In order for the Central Tech Store (CTS) to identify an individual as an approved pcard holder, and thereby qualifying for the tax-exempt purchasing options, the Department Purchaser first needs to create an account at the CTS online and have that account validated by the CTS staff.
