Departments can set up an account with the Apple Volume Purchase Program
(VPP) that will allow you to purchase apps and not pay sales tax.
Accounts are indexed by email address so you'll want a departmental
email address to use. I haven't used it on an iPad so I'm not sure what
steps you'll have to go through to actually install an app once it is
There is an overview of the program here:
I needed to purchase OSX 10.6 to upgrade an old iMac and that wasn't
included in the VPP, I'm not sure what else is not included.
Laurie Gelles from CESS Dean's office has used this program, she may
have more insight.
