Computer Refresh Project 2022

It's that time again -- Computer Refresh is Back!!

It’s time for Technology Services to exchange our current computers and laptops with new, more efficient machines. In preparation for the 2022 citywide computer refresh project (CRP), we will all use a simple strategy: CLEAN MOVE SAVE. This is a big project, but a necessary one. 

This effort replaces our aging desktop technology and:
          • Improves security while reducing cyber risks
          • Modernizes technology and increases productivity
          • Provides easier management of various hardware and software
          • Offers quicker problem resolution and so much more

In June, the first departments will receive new computers and laptops. Everyone is asked to CLEAN. MOVE. SAVE. desktop data files in preparation of getting the new machines. Remove all personal files from all drives. Move and save all necessary work files to the L drive.
