SHIPPING DELAY NOTICE
The ongoing pandemic has caused worldwide delays in shipping. These delays have affected the entire technology industry, particularly disrupting supply chains for retailers everywhere. The Technology Supply Office has not been spared from these disruptions, and as a result we are experiencing significant delays in order fulfillment and deliveries.
We are doing our best to accurately project the timelines for all orders, but the unpredictability in the global supply chain means that there is always a risk of orders being delayed beyond our estimations. To ensure that you receive your order in a timely fashion, we recommend that you place your order at least 5 to 7 weeks before you anticipate needing your product.
We understand that it is not always possible to anticipate your technology needs but, when possible, doing so will dramatically increase the chances that you will not experience any additional delays in receiving your product.
We sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding during this time, and we are happy to follow up with you regarding any questions or concerns you have related to existing or future orders.
Information Technology requires all GVSU funded computer hardware, peripherals (e.g. external drives, mice, keyboards, USB devices, etc.) and software be purchased through the Technology Supply Office.
