|Topic:||New Business - Discussion/Recommendations|
|Summary of Agenda Item:||Topic: Reprographics.|
There was discussion about the process of decisions and whether every decision made is going through shared governance.
It was discussed that there are some concerns about (1) whether there has been consideration of logistics if reprographics is outsourced to Office Depot; (2) Costs about dismantling reprographics on campus, if this is done; (3) Are the figures about savings accurate--did Hartnell reprographics have an opportunity to adjust their costs to be competitive with Office Depot?; (4) What is the implemtation plan?; (5) Are Admin staff being trained to use Office Depot as a pilot test? Or has decision been made to contract with Office Depot?; (6) Will staff/faculty be able to evaluate the services of Office Depot?; (7) Is there a central person who will be able to handle any problems encountered with Office Depot?; (8) Will Office Depot be secure for the reproducing of tests?; (9) Have the different needs of Administsration vs Faculty needs in relation to reproduction been evaluated?
