When a computer in your department has reached the end of its life, follow this procedure in order to surplus or repurpose a University computer.
With a call to IT Support, a technician visits the computer, removes its hard drive, and places a confirmation label on the unit.
The Surplus department will not pick up a computer without a confirmation label.
IT Support visits and assesses the disposition of the computer. The hard disk is removed or data security is ensured. IT will advise you if the computer should be repurposed to your department or the campus.
Confirm that IT Support has placed a label on the computer (designating that the hard drive has been removed) before you make a request to the Surplus Department.
