COVID-19 Webcam and Headset Purchases
During the COVID-19 response, ITS and the Purchasing Department are waiving the requirement to complete a technology purchase request form (TPRF) to purchase webcams and/or headsets. However, these purchases will still require that departments complete the orders through the normal requisition or purchase card processes.
During this exigent situation, and because we are not reviewing/testing the devices, ITS can not guarantee that a particular unit will work in our environment. We do want to note the following:
- Buyers should always check for Windows 10 compatibility if possible.
- Headsets may have USB or headphone style jacks – and both should work.
- The Logitech brand webcams (C270 720p model and other more expensive models) may work for your needs.

Truman does not sell hardware or software. However some vendors, such as Truman’s Microsoft vendor CDW, offer discounts to students and educators. The vendor discounts vary, and may change frequently so you need to compare vendor prices and shop wisely. This page has more information on options for Microsoft software.
