End/Start of Year Computer Purchases

04/20/2004

Please keep the following guidelines in mind as you plan your end of year / start of next fiscal year computer-related purchases and activities.

Last day to place fiscal year 2003-4 computer orders
All orders for computer equipment must be submitted to ITS no later than Friday, April 30. Please keep in mind that even with the April 30 deadline, we cannot control manufacturer lead times or product availability, so the sooner you place your order, the better the chances are that everything will be received in time to be charged to the 2003-4 fiscal year.

Summer projects
We need to know by June 1 if you will need our assistance with any project that involves the moving, installation or upgrade of five or more computers as one project between June 1 and September 30. This includes moves due to renovations, new carpeting, painting, office relocations, and the like. Please send a brief description of your project to Irene Scott.

Fiscal year 2004-5 computer orders
The vast majority of new computer purchases for the 2004/05 fiscal year will be ordered under the College's technology renewal program. The first round of cycle "C" computer purchases and installations will start in June and run through September, and will focus on lab computers and systems to support new faculty/staff lines. Replacements for existing faculty and staff office computers on cycle "C" will take place between October and April. Questionnaires for cycle "C" machines scheduled to be replaced this coming fall will be distributed in mid-July, and will be due back to ITS by mid-August.

Please contact Irene Scott, 4-1467, if you have any questions.
