Computing Hardware*:
As part of your offer package from the Economics or Management Department Head, you received an allocation to support your computing needs. This allocation can be further augmented by your STAR (Supplement for Teaching And Research) account. We would like to begin the order process for systems so that we can be prepared for your arrival. Our Krannert Computing Center (KCC) purchasing specialist Lisa Ratliff, ( will assist you in specifying a system for your use subject to University strategic sourcing guidelines. For Windows or Apple based desktop & laptop systems and printers, we have standardized on and obtained aggressive pricing from HP and Dell computers.

Visiting Faculty: A desktop computing system has been allocated for your use. The current desktops are at least Intel dual-core systems running Windows 7 64-bit edition. While our goal is to have a system ready for you upon arrival, our ability to meet that expectation is enhanced by early notification*. If you have specific questions, please send an email message to the Krannert Computing Center Help Desk (

*All orders should be placed as soon as possible. Final delivery depends upon a variety of factors including the degree of customization required, manufacturer supply chain delays for both hardware and software, and the Help Desk task queue which is generally managed as a FIFO process. Please expect as much as a two-week period for the Help Desk to set-up a system per your specifications after it has arrived on campus and been inventoried into the Purdue property accounting system.

The school provides the Operating System, Microsoft Office and antivirus protection standard with all computer purchases. The School also benefits from site licenses for packages such as SAS. Additional specialized software must be ordered and purchased from your STAR account. Lisa can help you secure the necessary software for your systems and alert you to any charges.
