Customer Groups / Cost / Order
This service is available to all organisational units of the centrally funded bodies of ETH Zurich.
Funding for this standard service is covered by the basic contract of IT at ETH, which is normally provided at no extra cost to the customer. The customer is only charged for the initial purchase cost of the PC workstation. The customer benefits from lower unit costs as the PC is purchased through the centralised procurement unit.
The ordering of a new PC workstation is carried out by the responsible IT Coordinator.
