As per section 6, a planned timetable operates for the computer lab software imaging lifecycle which affects when software should be procured for these machines. Once software choices have been finalised and submitted by schools in May, the imaging team will work with technical staff in their respective areas regarding what is procured and when. The University’s end of financial year ends on July 31st which can affect this but during a normal year the images will have been built and testing will be underway by this point for deployment over the summer.
Factors to consider for this area:
When submitting a software request for a computer labs you may be asked to provide additional information if the software hasn’t been procured before and is over a certain value. This is so a single supplier waiver can be completed.
Submitting software orders with as much notice as possible is highly advisable, as for larger requisitions the internal authorisation process can be lengthy.
