Hardware and Telephone

Computers & Laptops

From 1st August 2020 IT Services took over responsibility for providing IT equipment for Professional Services, and we are now responsible for providing desktops, laptops, tablets and monitors/screens for professional services. If work in professional services and have a requirement for a device please email where we will assess the requirement and make arrangements to provide a suitable supported device.

If you are in a School you will still need to request new kit following the local arrangements for your School.  

There are a few things to note:

The policy allows for one device per person unless there is a compelling business case. 

  1. ITS do not provide mobile telephones handsets but do manage and provide the contracts for those handsets.
  2. ITS do not provide consumables such as cables, mice or keyboards by default, but it is always worth checking with us first as we may have some in stock preventing the need to but more. If we are unable to supply you wil need to order any consumables via the appropriate routes. A new supplier – XMA – has been appointed for IT consumables.
  3. All kit is now covered by a 5 year warranty – so no replacements for machines will be considered unless they are at least 5 years old. 
  4. If you can notify when someone leaves or a machine is returned we will arrange for the device to be collected and returned to the pool.
