IT Service of the Month: Management of IT Assets

The Division of Information Technology (DoIT) uses an inventory management system to track university owned technology assets. Additionally, whenever a qualifying asset is permanently moved, transferred to another department, traded in, missing, stolen, dismantled, or otherwise disposed, we have an Asset Inventory Control system in place.

Requirements/Limitations

DoIT is responsible for tracking:

  1. Computers – laptops, tablets, desktops
  2. Servers – Enterprise level and Snap
  3. Enterprise level networking – switches, routers, wireless APs
  4. Smart Boards
  5. Data projectors installed in classrooms
  6. All technology assets purchased by DoIT

It is highly suggested that all other IT assets of significant value and highly mobile be tracked by their respective department(s).
