PC Goods



The state procures a variety of PC Goods which include desktops, laptops, all-in-ones, tablets, thin clients, and monitors of various sizes. Plug load, electricity consumption by a product powered by an ordinary AC plug, should be a key purchasing and operational consideration for commercial office space. As much as 80% of commercial building plug load is driven by computers and monitors (See Reference: Commercial Office Plug Load Savings and Assessment). Therefore, the state strives to procure energy efficient PC Goods.

Green Contracts

The statewide contracts offer PC Goods with reduced toxins, increased energy efficiency (decreased plug loads), environmentally responsible manufacturers, and take-back. Where applicable, the PC Goods meet the Gold performance criteria under the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) global registry for greener electronic products. ENERGY STAR® certification is a requirement for EPEAT® certification.

There are nine contracts available to purchase PC Goods. These contracts may be open to Local Governmental Agencies as defined by Public Contract Code Section 10298. Click on “Buy Green Now” to view the Contract User Instructions for further details.

Buying Tips

The following buying tips are to help reduce plug load:

  • Understand user’s needs to identify the appropriate desktop configuration (e.g., standard, power, or workstation.)  Do not buy more computer capability than actually needed.
  • Assess user’s request to have 2 monitors at one work desk.  Unnecessary monitor increases plug load.
  • Assess user’s request for monitors larger than the standard size.
