CEA needs to be printed and signed by Departmental HOD’s or other staff with signing authority, after that it need to be signed off by SIT team leaders, either Werner or Graeme, if the lease or purchase order is involved with large quantity or expensive computers, we need to get SIT business manager to sign off


CEA is then sent to faculty Finance Anita, she arranges the CEA for further approval, it usually takes 1-2 weeks to get the CEA signed off and ready to place order.

Once Anita places order, she will update the CEA with order number in KAOs, with the order number, we can track down the delivery status from Dell website.
