Annual Computer Replacement Plan

June 9, 2014

Project Status : Active Project Phase : Execution Project Location : United States Total Cost : $494,177 Department/Division: Finance/Information Systems Project Description and Reason Necessary: The City s 2011 eGov study recommended a 4-year replacement cycle for computers in order to maintain currency in technology throughout the city. Maintaining current technology assures the interoperability of the City s software and operating systems with those of other federal, state and local agencies with whom the City exchanges information. By implementing a 4-year replacement plan, computers can be purchased with a 4-year warranty, ensuring none of the city computers are ever out of warranty, reducing repair costs. This also helps eliminate the need to replace computers on an emergency basis and minimizes staff downtime caused by unplanned, emergency computer replacements or repairs. Due to financial constraints, the following plan anticipates spending approximately $100,000 per year to replace computers, which will only support a 5-year replacement cycle. With some help from future price reductions for computers and conversion to tablet-type devices, in the future, it may be possible to shift to a 4-year replacement cycle, as recommended by the City s technology consultant. All costs are based on FY2013 quoted/actual pricing. Funding Source: General Capital Projects Fund
