Purchase all computers through CLA-OIT (this includes computers for all needs and funding sources). We can assist in configurations either adhering to CLA-OIT standards or custom needs. Jenny Szymanski (firstname.lastname@example.org, 6-4652) is CLA-OIT's purchaser.
CLA no longer sells computers to individuals. The process to properly sell a computer puts an undue burden on both CLA-OIT and Financial Service Team personnel due to securing private data, EFS, and other university regulations. As the computers are of questionable value without support (something technicians cannot provide), it is not worth the additional work (e.g. erasing all software and data from the hard drives, creating an invoice in EFS, etc.) to sell them. This policy is applies to ALL computers purchased by university funds.
Every computer used for University business requires professional support. CLA-OIT provides support for computers up to 4 years old (contact your tech for more details). Beyond that, alternative support must be identified or the computer must be sent to CLA-OIT for proper disposal/recycling.
