Scope
The Information Systems Division will be the repository for a pool of six (6) laptops to be loaned to City of Albuquerque Departments, divisions, offices, and agencies. Organizations may sign out the laptops for short term use (usually less than two (2) weeks) instead of purchasing additional assets.
Policy
The Information Systems Division (ISD) will maintain six (6) laptops that have current technology capabilities to loan to City of Albuquerque Departments, divisions, offices, and agencies. As the pool machines are replaced, the oldest laptops in the pool, beginning in FY06, will be formally reassigned to Departments, divisions, offices, and/or agencies that justify the greatest need.
Rationale
The pool provides equipment that is current, within standards for hardware, software, and virus protection to City of Albuquerque Departments, divisions, offices, and agencies for short term use. This eliminates the need for those organizations to purchase laptops to give presentations, demonstrations, or to meet other short term City business needs.
