Potentially 500 PCs will be needed by the University of Otago’s teaching facilities in Dunedin as it looks to recycle older machines.
According to request for tender (RFT) documents released this week, the University wants tenders for the supply of between 300 and 500 computers from November 2008 through to October 2009.
Suppliers are required to detail the energy consumption statistics of the computers, carbon emission offsetting by the supplier and a recycle policy on PCs after a four-year cycle.
The University also needs a number of PC case options ranging from small form to midsized towers. The supply of a demo PC will be requested from some companies before a final supplier is chosen.
The deadline for replies is Friday, September 12. More details are available on the Government Electronic Tenders website under ICCNZ reference 23173.
