EIT orders are processed daily for general orders but please allow up to 1 week for orders to be processed, some orders can take longer depending on resellers and financial systems.
If you want to know more about the eIT system, look at the Finance department's details on eIT system and how to use it
Some units may not be on the EIT system, or will have to pay directly to a vendor, so an invoice and purchase order may need to be done. Please contact the Software Services Team directly to arrange this.
