Order Tech Now

Order Tech Now is your one-stop shop for procuring pre-approved client computers, accessories, software and more. State agencies may acquire these products directly from approved vendors knowing these products will work within our technology environment, meet our state architecture and security requirements and be supportable by OMES.

 Note: Account required for access.

Getting Started

Contact your Account Executive or submit a request through the OMES Service Desk to have an account created. We recommend requesting access for your purchasing staff team.

Once your request with your agency’s decentralized security representative is verified, you will receive a welcome email and login instructions to set up your account. 

Technology Leasing

Agencies can now lease standard technology devices directly from an approved vendor. This new leasing process will provide a quicker delivery timeline, as well as more control over the order process. In order to lease hardware, your agency will need to complete the DFS Billing Information form which indicates the billing contact person and invoice preferences. Once completed, please send this form to Sylvia_Cuff@dell.com and your IT strategist or account executive.

Once the billing form is completed, start working with your OMES IT strategist or account executive to initiate the lease order process. OMES will provide quality control to ensure essential accessories are included and all relevant information is collected.

For more information, contact your OMES IT strategist or account executive, or refer to the Partnering with OMES IS contact list for your agency's contact information.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I still purchase through OMES?

It is not necessary to purchase items through OMES that are available through Order Tech Now. Order Tech Now allows you to pay for preapproved products and services directly, saving you time and hassle to purchase what you need.

Where do I find preapproved software and hardware?

Our partner portal pages only showcase software and hardware that have been preapproved by your agency and that meets our state standards for stability and security. View preapproved software and hardware for your agency at approved.ok.gov.

What if I need to order an item not in the portal?

If there is an item not on the product catalog that needs to be ordered, complete the product request form and OMES will work with our vendor to review and determine if this is something that can be added to the catalog or if it is a standalone request that needs further information to develop purchase quotes.

Why is there a purchasing limit?

Per the procurement information memorandum “Delegation of Authority from CIO for Certain IT Procurement Purchases” the state Chief Information Officer has statutory approval authority over all information technology and telecommunications acquisitions as defined in the Oklahoma Central Purchasing Act. View the PIM for more detailed information on purchasing limits.

What payment types are accepted?

The only payment type that is accepted at this time on the portal is P-card.

What type of products are available?

This portal may only be used for acquiring hardware, software and accessories that meet the state PC standards via PCard or leasing agreement. Meeting our state standards means the product works within our technology environment, meets our state architecture, meets our security requirements and is supportable by OMES. If your agency has requested exceptions to the PC standards, you will need to continue working with your OMES Account Executive. View preapproved software and hardware for your agency at approved.ok.gov.

Leasing

If my agency already has a login to order from Dell do I need to do anything?

You will still need to complete the DFS Billing Information form as indicated since the leasing portal will be a separate section on the Dell ordering web page.

Why do I need to inform OMES when I need to order something?

All devices will be shipped directly to the deployment center where they will be imaged and configured. Before devices show up at the deployment center, OMES needs to know which individuals in your agency will receive the devices, specific software that needs to be installed, and etc. This information will be used by both the deployment vendor and OMES to ensure seamless delivery of all devices.

What is the expected timeline for devices to be deployed once I order them?

Estimated time of delivery for leased devices will be 5-10 business days once they are received in deployment. The order point of contact will be invited to a kick off call once the devices are received to schedule device delivery for end users.

How can I track my order?

Once the order is placed, you can track the ship and arrival dates on the Dell ordering web page. Once devices are received in the deployment center, the order point of contact will receive updates through the Service Desk Self Service Portal.

What if I am not sure what type of computer is right for our agency members needing a device?

Contact your OMES IT Strategist or Account Executive for more information about the device or to have a demonstration scheduled.

Do these devices go into my agency inventory?

To comply with state IT Standards and the Oklahoma IT Security policy, OMES is responsible for device inventory and will be tracked in the OMES inventory system. The agencies are assuming the responsibility of the payment obligation.

How many devices can I order at one time?

There is a limit of up to $50,000 that can be procured at one time per the procurement information memorandum “Delegation of Authority from CIO for Certain IT Procurement Purchases”. However, if you are leasing 15 devices or more and/or the locations of the individuals receiving the devices are geographically dispersed then additional coordination will be necessary. Please contact your OMES IT Strategist or Account Executive to assist with the information needed for these orders.
