At CRC we have a planning process designed to proactively replace desktop computer systems around a usable computer life-cycle schedule. We call this the CRC PC Renewal Plan. Despite it's name, it addresses the life-cycle of both PC's and Mac's used by our full time employees.
The purpose of this process is to maintain a proactive and efficient turnover of our computer resources rather than wait for them to grow old, unusable and unreliable before replacing them. This enables us to meet the needs of our employees, reuse systems efficiently and spread out the fiscal burden by replacing computers in a planned and controlled fashion. It also reduces the maintenance and support burden of over 360 desktop systems throughout the college by removing obsolete and costly-to-maintain systems. Most importantly, it lets employees know when they can expect to be upgraded and with what. During the design process of each 3-year cycle there is provision for input from the folks that will be using these computers.
Please note the following:
Another new cycle of PC Renewal plan has been put in motion. It has been reviewed by all the Division Deans and Administration, and all comments/recommendations from that review have been incorporated in the version you see linked here : PCPlan2018-2020.pdf
The final version of the plan will available here after it has been reviewed by our constituents during the last phase of this process.
