"One departments trash is another departments treasure"
The purpose of this listserv (pcxchg-l):
Is to save expenditures for the University. We need to make sure that these resources can be used elsewhere in the University by informing all the departments of these resources so that they are used to the maximum capacity before sending them to salvage . Understanding this ensures the University is not wasting good equipment.
How it will function:
Anyone at USC can join the listserv and input their items to the pcxchg-l listserv as well as request for needed items. This listserv is for Computers, Software and Hardware only. Any other items will not, repeat NOT, be sent or posted using this listserv. You can post other Computer items to this listserv that are needed as well.
We do not want to put any items on this listserv that do not work. Those items that do not work need to be turned into Consolidated Services (925 Gadsden Street, Voice: 777-3114, FAX: 777-3149 or 9059).
If you just received new PCs and you have older working PCs, printers, and or monitors and software that need to be turned into Consolidated Services, please use the Listserv first to notify those departments that could use those needed items.
Use the USC Inventory Form 7:
When equipment is transfered, the USC Inventory Form 7 must be used. Listing Item, Model, Manufacturer Serial Number, USC number, From Bldg Nr., Room Nr., To Bldg Nr. Room Nr., Reason, and condition of item(s) must be filled in.
Each Form 7 will have the name, department number and fund account, of both the releasing (top of form) and receiving department (bottom of form). A total of three copies of the Form 7 will be needed, one to each of the following: one to the releasing and to the receiving deparment and one to Consolidated Services (FAX 777-3149 or 9059). Consolidated Services needs to know where all equipment is at all times for auditing purposes.
