1 The purchase of each peripheral is to be reviewed by SAIT. The actual brand and model are to be recommended by the SAIT department and purchased with unit/division capital. Purchases made without the expressed approval of the SAIT department will not be installed or be removed from the Student Affairs environment and will not have access to SAIT resources.

2 Support comes through 3rd party (RICOH and/or PrinterMech) initiated by end-user not the SAIT department. SAIT will provide the printer an IP address and have it communicate with the networked devices and vice versa and support that communication. 

3 Activation of the port, not the port hardware, or troubleshooting the cabling between end points.
