There have been many changes around campus in regards to Retirements, Sabbaticals, etc. that will require the Technology Renewal database be updated to accurately reflect changes to the environment.  To facilitate these updates, Information Technology will be reaching out to the departmental area coordinators asking for assistance with updating the Technology Renewal Database for the assets assigned to those guardians who will not be returning to campus this fall.  

Keeping the Technology Renewal Databse current assures important communications are received by the supervisors and/or new guardians that include timely updates related to the replacement of departmental computer assets.  Thank you in advance for your time and assistance.  If you have any questions, please contact the Information Technology Service Desk at (607)274-1000, via email at servicedesk@ithaca.edu or by Live Chat.
