One of the goals of Information Technology is to provide adequate and up-to-date computing devices to support the mission of Salisbury University. To this effect, the IT department has developed a roadmap that will guide the replacement of Faculty and Staff primary computers that are five (5) years old or older.
Faculty may select either a Windows or Mac (Laptop or Desktop) standard model at time of refresh.
Staff will be provided the standard Windows desktop at the time of replenishment. Requests for higher performance models will be handled on a case by case basis and any additional funds for the price difference will need to be provided by your department. A purchase requisition is required to be sent to IT Procurement with the account code(s) for the difference in cost.
This project will take place in two phases:
During the first phase of the plan, IT will verify data from the campus about the primary computers and will be contacting departments for any additional information required. Computers are being replaced on a one-for–one basis (PC for PC, Mac for Mac, laptop for laptop, etc.) with a standard configuration for Windows PCs and for Macintosh computers as seen on the IT Procurement web site. If you wish to change from the standard configuration, IT can provide a quote for any additional costs to upgrade or switch. Changes in computer configurations that incur additional costs are the responsibility of the requesting department or school. Any change from the standard configuration may increase the time to complete the upgrade.
Once the replacement computers have been received, during the second phase of the project IT will schedule a time with each faculty or staff member slated for computer replacement to install and migrate the customer's data to the new computer.
Note: All new Windows-based PCs and laptops will come with Windows 10 as the default operating system, which is visually different from previous Windows operating systems.
