Welcome to the new Workday Technology Procurement Process. The process of purchasing technology equipment such as computers, new monitors, or docking stations, has never been easier. Information Systems and Procurement have partnered to streamline and standardize this process for Wake Forest faculty and staff.

Effective July 1st, 2023, computer and tablet purchases will be made through Workday.

This new process allows for:

  • Potential cost savings
  • Removing the need for Service Desk tickets to request hardware
  • No bottlenecks of an additional approval step
  • Quicker delivery times

Custom Computer Orders 

Information Systems continually works to provide computer models that will meet a majority of WFU computing requirements; however, if you find that the standard configurations do not meet your technology needs, please submit a request for a custom order.

Follow the steps for completing the ISD, and select “Custom order” when choosing a Catalog Item. Please leave the Unit Cost and Extended amount to $1. This will be adjusted once the order is placed. Complete the rest of the order. Finally, if you have a quote for the custom order, please attach the quote.

Docking Stations 

The universal laptop docking station available for ordering is the StarTech USB-C Docking Station. USB-C enabled laptops, tablets, and smartphones will be able transform to create powerful workstations, that are ideal for productivity applications. Features include multi-monitor setup, USB peripheral connectivity, Wired Gigabit Ethernet Connectivity, and SD & Micro SD Storage Expansion.


Faculty and staff can select a 24″ monitor to accompany their devices. The monitor is an adjustable height Dell 1080p HD external monitor with HDMI cable.
