Equipment and Facilities Costs in Funded Research

Equipment

Contact the Purchasing Department (315-228-7838) for prices of equipment to be included in the budget. Purchasing will have information about possible discount arrangements and can assist with procurement, contracts, RFPs and RFBs (requests for proposals and bids).

For advice about selecting computer, audiovisual equipment and software, contact the ITS Service Desk (315-228-7111). They will direct you to staff who will help you determine if your equipment can be integrated into Colgate's existing computing systems.

Facilities Alterations

For assistance in developing a cost estimate for minor construction or utilities alterations, contact the Facilities Department (315-228-7130). Allow 2–3 weeks for estimates.
