Workstation Standardization

Charges

Create a workstation standardization model for the campus that takes into account both the common and unique needs of the various constituencies. Simultaneously create opportunities to improve service, increase the speed of deployment of new hardware and software, improve our ability to maintain low cost inventories, normalize the refresh cycle, and reduce the costs of maintenance and support. The plan should be consistent with the ITSTC recommendations, the IT Guiding Principles, and the outcomes specified in the IT Bill of Rights.
