What we do

We provide business services that encompass purchasing services, shipment receiving, and the administration of computer hardware registration/tracking. In addition, we are responsible for the systems and processes that make it possible to charge computing support costs to sponsored funding sources. If you have any charging questions or concerns, you can submit a charging inquiry.

We operate as a recharge center; we charge monthly fees to recover the costs of providing technical services and supporting the SCS community. When considering the volume of computers a department or group may be responsible for, understanding charges and services may become a bit challenging.

We're happy to provide consulting on charging issues or answer any questions relating to the purchasing process:

  • Account or costing support
  • Purchasing computing equipment for your department or group within SCS
  • Provide assistance with registration or support charges
  • We can assist with shipping or receiving
  • Managing your asset registrations, and more!
