FCP Procurement in PRIME

FCP computer orders are purchased through the PRIME Financials Web site by punching out to Dell, Apple or, for Lenovo, the CDW-G sites. PRIME Financials is accessible through the Finance PRIME portal by going here.  PRIME Shoppers are not FCP Purchasers and should assign a cart with an FCP order to the department's Requisition Creator assigned the FCP Purchaser role.  Contact your department or program manager.

  1. The department, with eligible faculty who wish to participate in the FCP program, may order only the Faculty Computer Program (FCP) computer kits.
  2. The computer is to be ordered by staff in the faculty member's department or program.

The department is responsible for journaling any additional upgrade charges to a department or faculty chartstring.
