FOR COUNTY USE ONLY
First and foremost, always make sure you are following proper procedures when you are upgrading or replacing computer inventory.
County Cost Share is a program whereby the county and the state share in the cost of computers. The state has funds set aside for this. County Coordinators should verify that there are county funds available to cover the purchase. If county funds are available, you can go to the AgriLife TechBuy website and request a computer system, as well as other technology items available. AgriLife will invoice you and send you the item, then you need to submit the invoice to the county for prompt payment.
DO NOT order anything unless you have received approval from your County Coordinator AND the appropriate county official (usually, that’s the county auditor).
Counties should be budgeting for what is needed and remaining within those budgets to the extent reasonable/possible.
