Document Do I need to use the specialist equipment supplier indicated on my Needs Assessment Report (NAR)?

Ideally, you should use the supplier indicated on your DSAs award letter.

Should you wish to use a different supplier you must ensure that they can supply you with the equipment and any software which meets the recommended specifications outlined in your Needs Assessment Report (NAR). 

If you have been recommended software, the equipment you purchase must be able to run this software. If it does not, then the cost of this equipment may be recovered from you.

Amounts of money quoted for each item of specialist equipment on your NAR are not transferable to another. For example, if your quote includes an amount for a printer, you cannot put this money towards a more expensive laptop if you choose not to buy the printer.
