    9. IT Initiatives – Procurement • On track for high level design and recommendations by 9/30 • Four major areas of focus • Laptop/desktop standardization with a few models • Volume purchase with standard image installed with lower cost – positive impact on reducing Desktop support cost • Faster turnaround with equipment inventory on-hand • List of vendors re-negotiation • Top three vendors: AT&T ($13.5 million, Apple ($5.3 million) and Dell ($5.0 million) - $23.8 million • AT&T and Dell best targets for renegotiation • Central management of AT&T wireless across campus • Joint forces with UC Berkeley to increase buying power with more volume discount (would increase top three vendor spend to approximately $31 million • Standardize IT Procurement guidelines/policies • Discourage individual reimbursements for AT&T wireless and desktop/laptop equipment purchases • IT procurement org model • Consolidate IT procurement expertise instead of fragmentation

    10. IT Initiatives – Help Desk • Most challenging task – preliminary directions available by Sept 30 • Currently focused on developing common service catalog for Med Center, ISU and ITS helpdesks • Surveyed local help desks to understand issues driving their creation • Will likely require initial investment in order to align (raise) current service levels and to add the provision of service to students • More significant savings impact will likely occur when local/remote help desks can be phased in • Single-Sign on project and campus password policy and the Email consolidation and Procurement initiatives will have positive impact on volume of calls in Help Desk
