Equipment Removal and Return
Identify employee guidelines for requesting the removal of office equipment for remote work, as well as equipment return.
Employees should determine the computer equipment necessary to complete work from a remote location in a timely, efficient, and professional manner.
Any equipment provided by the College must be inventoried and approved by a supervisor or department chair (student employee requests must be approved and submitted by a supervisor). A list of this equipment should be sent to email@example.com and to
Human Resources,who will retain the list in the individual’s personnel file.
Removing Office Computers and Equipment
Employees requesting to have computers unlocked to be removed from campus should submit a request (form below) listing all of the equipment that is being removed. To ensure requests are properly handled, please provide a minimum of 7-days advanced notice.
- Submit a request to remove computer equipment for remote work (requires login)
If you have any questions about the process you can use the ITS Support Portal to submit a ticket or email ITS at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Returning Office Computers and Equipment
Employees no longer working remotely should return computers and equipment to the location it was removed from unless another arrangement is made with their supervisor such as a change in office location. When equipment is returned, contact ITS via the ITS Support Portal or via email at email@example.com.
End of Employment
The employee will be required to return any College-owned property upon request or if no longer employed by the college: Ex: Laptop, Desktop, Monitors, iPad, peripherals (mice, keyboards, printers, adapters), etc. Equipment should be returned to your department, who will coordinate with ITS and Human Resources, by the official last day of employment. If an extension is required, it needs to be approved through HR (staff) or the Provost (faculty).
