Statement of Purpose

The purpose of this document is to define the processes and standards around the computer refresh program for Academic Affairs. This program is managed by IT Support Services and covers all tenure-track faculty and full-time faculty on multi-year contracts, as well as full-time staff. Lecturers on one-year contracts and part-time adjunct faculty and other part-time employees will be provided with a best available computer. 

Details of the Program

Computer Models

The computers that have been chosen for the refresh program should meet the needs of the majority of users. These computers are all part of the UNC System Computer Purchasing Initiative (CPI), which includes extra discounts and higher level service agreements than can be found on computers outside of CPI. Any computer that is not part of CPI will need approval from ITS and the department.
