Continuing academic staff and fixed term academics (>2 years) will be entitled to College funding up to the value of $1960 for a single device. This could be to replace a device in line with the 4 years replacement cycle, replace a device that is no longer fit for purpose or in need of major repairs.
The allocated amount is sufficient to cover the following devices:
- Dell Optiplex 7070 or similar
- Processor – i7

- 512 GB SSD
- NVIDIA GPU
- Dell Latitude 5000 or similar
- Processor – i5

If during deployment if it is deemed the existing monitor requires replacement this will be done from college stock of 24” monitors.
If you believe your device is due for replacement and one of the above standard devices are suitable please log a request via the IDS Service desk requesting a field technician review your device for replacement.
In the event you require something other than the college standard, the college will contribute $1960 towards the purchase of your computer, the budget (account) code to be charged is 01.370.07130. If the allocated college funding is insufficient to cover the cost of your required computer or you are requesting additional or larger monitors, then the difference in the cost of the devices should be funded from other sources of funding that you are responsible for, provided there are sufficient funds. Please ensure there are sufficient funds in the account prior to submitting any orders.
If you do not have sufficient funding from other sources for these devices please contact the College Dean of People and Resources justifying the need for the device or monitor and why there is inadequate funding from other sources to cover the cost.
