Apple catalog, IT purchasing form are now available in Mountaineer Marketplace

Apple is now a preferred catalog vendor in Mountaineer Marketplace, with dozens of items available in the purchasing system that replaced WVUBuy over the summer. When you click the Apple icon, a window will connect you to the punch-out site. You may be prompted to click an “Allow Pop-Up” button to complete this step.

In addition to Apple, users interested in software or computer hardware can shop the Dell and CDWG preferred catalogs in Mountaineer Marketplace. Software, hardware and consulting services ordered through non-preferred catalog vendors such as HP also require completion of an IT Purchasing form now posted under “Additional Forms” on the Marketplace home page.

After submitting this form, you will immediately be notified whether the purchase is pre-approved or requires an IT, security or revenue review. This pre-approval does NOT replace approvals that may be required by your EBO or department. This form is ONLY required for non-catalog vendors. However, users at the Health Sciences Center must continue to seek pre-approval for ALL orders regardless of whether WVU has a contract in place with the vendor. The HSC IT Purchases form is also under the “Additional Forms” section of the Marketplace home page.

Procurement Contracting and Payment Services is working toward the eventual elimination of the IT Purchasing form, which Information Technology Services uses to address security concerns about personal, credit card and other sensitive information.

Access to Mountaineer Marketplace is in the same place as WVUBuy: Just visit and log in with your WVU Login credentials. To get an overview of Mountaineer Marketplace, learn the answers to Frequently Asked Questions or find out about training, click here.
