Copier/Printer Contract Renewal

Kelly Fitzpatrick gave a status update on the replacement of the current Ricoh copier/printers:

  • ITS along with members of the Business Office and with input from several AAs are reviewing bids and hope to choose a vendor soon.
  • The current Ricoh contract has been extended to November 1, 2011.
  • The bids are very similar to what we are currently paying Ricoh.
  • Looking at possibly going with a 5-year contract.
  • Reviewing the possibility of moving from charging an inflated estimated copy count to an actual copy count. The downside of moving to an actual paper count is the charge would fluctuate slightly from quarter to quarter.
  • Any request for color copier/printers with need to be considered very carefully.

Being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 10:20am.

Next meeting will be in September 21, 2011.

Respectfully submitted,
Kelly Fitzpatrick
Whittier Circle Representative
