ETCS will be preparing inventory sheets for each office to be checked
for accuracy. These checklists will include computers, printers, digital
cameras, and projectors that have been assigned U. IDs which we are required
to keep track of. There are a large number of computers that are considered
"old" _ IBM PC, IBM PS/Value-Point, IBM PS/2 Model 40, as well as many more_
that are still listed as being in use. Neither University inventory records
nor ETCS inventory records show that these computers have been surplused,
cannibalized, sold, etc. Plans are to locate this equipment by contacting
the last person/office associated with the equipment and if not actually
in use, recommend surplusing or find out what happened to the equipment
or where the item is currently located.
These inventory sheets will also serve as a way to make sure all equipment
that is being used is in our inventory database. If your office has purchased
computers which are connected to your network, ETCS needs this information.
