Departmental Purchasing

Departments are encouraged to purchase Apple products and third-party technology accessories from RamTech, VCU’s on-campus retail technology store. Proceeds from purchases made at RamTech support the campus store, which was created for the benefit of students, faculty, staff, and VCU departments. Departments may also shop online at ramtech.vcu.edu.  As an Apple Authorized Campus Store, RamTech provides educational pricing.

To order Dell computers for your department, RamTech recommends purchasing standard configuration or custom models directly through the eVA Dell PunchOut catalog.

RamTech accepts departmental Banner index codes to facilitate chargeback transactions.  Department chargeback transactions eliminate credit card fees and bank charges typically associated with P-Cards, thereby saving university fiscal resources.

By eliminating the purchase order and receiving process, RamTech provides fiscal personnel the most efficient purchasing process. RamTech also eliminates shipping expenses by providing free delivery service to the Monroe Park and MCV campuses.
