The university is introducing the ICT Device Management Project in the in the VPFR (excluding Consumer Services) to ensure all employees have a safe and reliable computer to use. The project will provide a standard desktop or laptop (excluding cell phones) per employee that will be supplied, configured and installed by ICT. The standardized computers will reduce purchasing costs and provide a more consistent desktop support experience.
To enhance the functionality of users’ devices the VPFR has added the following enhancements to its support offerings around the standard models:
Laptop loaners are limited to 30 days
While the majority of users will be well served by the standard models listed above, ICT does recognize that there will be specific business needs that will require computing devices beyond the standard models. In these cases, ICT will work with the department to determine the specific devices that will meet the business needs of the unit and to receive appropriate sign offs for non-standard models.
If requesting change to model or upgrades to the model (such as more memory) you must use the request form for a non-standard model as these requests need to be approved.
To put in a request for ICT to contact you to discuss your business need for a non-standard model please follow the links for the devices below and fill in the required information:
