COMPUTER PURCHASE PLAN
Operating on a first-come, first-serve basis, the Computer Purchase Plan is a convenient option for UFV employees interested in buying a basic home computer system. The plan is intended to assist as many employees as possible to acquire a personal home computer system; therefore, the plan will only cover the cost of a new computer system, or costs of upgrading an existing home system with memory, hard-drives, monitors, printers, and scanners. Employees may purchase a personal home computer through the plan once every 3 years, as per Canada Revenue Guidelines.
The plan covers the cost of a computer system to a limit of $2,000 including PST & GST. If the system you choose is more than $2,000, a cheque for the difference must accompany your purchasing paperwork (purchase requisition and payroll deduction form).
Beginning the first pay period after your purchase is processed, 24 equal payments are deducted from your pay cheque over a consecutive 12-month period until the balance is paid. If you are an employee with a term contract, the cost of your system will have a corresponding schedule of deductions over the term of your contract.
The vendor you choose to buy your system from must accept a purchase order from UFV. Some large cash and carry retail chains do not accept purchase orders so make this the first question you ask the sales person, “Will you accept a purchase order from University of the Fraser Valley?”. The Plan stipulates that your computer system must be ordered through UFV's purchasing department. The plan will not reimburse individuals who order and buy systems themselves, so keep your credit card and cash in your pocket. Detailed instructions on purchasing and receiving your system are included in the purchasing package.
NOTE: THE COMPUTER SYSTEM YOU ORDER MUST BE A COMPLETE SINGLE PACKAGE. THIS PLAN DOES NOT ALLOW FOR ADD-ONS AT A LATER DATE
