Campus Hardware Standards

One of the many challenges in supporting the use of computers and information technology in a university environment is standardizing, to the degree possible, the kinds of hardware and software that people use on their desktops and in offices. While this policy realizes that some individuals/departments will have needs that are not resolved by the recommended standards, it is important to acknowledge that adhering to standards will ultimately result in better service and faster resolution of problems for everyone. Computing in a network environment is complex; hardware and software that work fine in a non-networked or home environment may not work in a network environment. Saving a few dollars on an off-brand PC or personal printer will ultimately cost far more in staff support and in additional purchases that may be needed to solve problems.

The goal of this document is not to impose expensive standards unilaterally, but rather to increase campus understanding of the problems and issues and reach a consensus on the policy and standards. Having standards reduces the number of variables that come into play while trouble shooting problems, which will result in better service for information technology users. This policy and the recommended standards will be kept current and available via a web page. Users will be able to select products and make purchasing decisions simply be referring to the recommended standards. ITSS will guarantee that products purchased from the recommended standards will work on the campus's networked environment. While ITSS will still be committed to making non-recommended equipment and software work, it must be recognized that these situations will take a lower priority and may involve additional expense to the user.
