Computer Replacement Project (CREP) Business Support Services - Information Technology (BSSA-IT) is currently in the final stages of its 2014 Computer Replacement Project (CREP). Each year, BSSA-IT’s desktop team attempts to get as many out-of-warranty computer models removed from the County’s network and replace them with newer models. The newer models not only allow County employees to work more efficiently by providing them with current technology, but also result in cost savings to the County since replacement parts for machines under warranty are provided at no cost from Dell, while out-of-warranty machines must be repaired at full cost. The 2014 Computer Replacement Project began in February and is scheduled to conclude in August. During this year’s CREP, 900 machines in County departments, the Sheriff’s Office and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Library will be replaced. Using a database which tracks the warranty expiration date of each County computer, the desktop team is able to determine which machines need to be replaced. After the 2014 CREP concludes, there will still be approximately 2,000 computers out of warranty. The funding approved in the FY15 Budget for the 2015 CREP will enable BSSA-IT to bring all remaining County computers under warranty. If you have questions about the Computer Replacement Project, you can contact Brian Nagle, Desktop Team lead, via email.
