To augment the college’s end-of-fiscal year procedures, Information Technology Services asks that you also keep the following guidelines in mind as you plan your end of year / start of next fiscal year computer-related purchases and activities.
FISCAL YEAR 2013/14 COMPUTER ORDERS
All requisitions for computer equipment chargeable to the 2013/14 fiscal year should be entered and approved in iProcurement Parnassus by April 30, 2013.
Please keep in mind that ITS cannot control manufacturer lead times or product availability. The earlier you place your order, the better the chances are your item will be received in time to be charged to the 2013/14 fiscal year. Equipment must be in possession of the College by May 31st.
Requests for new computer hardware can be submitted to your department approver using our ITS Catalog site. Please review the Purchase Guidelines prior to logging onto the catalog. Users with iProcurement access in Parnassus access can go directly to the ITS Catalog under the “Shopping Lists” tab in iProcurement, the college’s on-line requisitioning system.
If you need something that is not listed, are unsure of what product to get, or need vendor assistance, contact Irene Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 274-1467.
Please let us know by May 15th 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 installation, carpeting, painting, office relocations, and the like. Please send a brief description of your project to Irene Scott (email@example.com).
2014/15 FISCAL YEAR COMPUTER ORDERS
Cycle "A" computer 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 "A" will take place between October and April. Questionnaires for cycle "A" machines scheduled to be replaced this coming fall are distributed in mid-July, and will be due back to ITS by mid-August.
Also, please remember the computers being replaced are leased and therefore must be taken and returned to the leasing company by the lease end date to avoid any penalties for late lease end returns. The return requires strict adherence to the replacement schedule to avoid any extra charges or penalties by departments.
Full details of the Technology Renewal Program, including inventory listings, equipment cycle designations, replacement equipment specifications, what is and what is not replaced, and details as to what software packages are included is available on the Technology Renewal website.
Please contact Irene Scott, Coordinator of Technology Renewal and Desktop Acquisition, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
