  • 1. State Board of the Technical College System of Georgia Operations and Technology Committee June 4-5, 2008 Motions & Discussion Items I. TCSG System Office – Ratification Motion: A motion is made for the State Board of the Technical College System of Georgia to authorize the Commissioner to make all decisions, purchases and enter into contracts necessary between the June and August Board meeting that would otherwise require Board approval. Such decisions, purchases and contracts will be ratified by the Board at the August meeting. II. Technical College Expenditure Items The motion is made that the Commissioner be authorized to purchase for the technical colleges listed below the designated items or requested contracts at a cost not to exceed the amount stated by each technical college. 1) Albany Technical College, Lease agreement for 11 fleet copiers and management services for campus Print Center from Xerox Corporation; total annual cost $338,754.00. Discussion: The college has been outsourcing these services for the past 10 years. This is a new contract for upgrade of existing services. The campus Print Center provides printing services on site at a 60% cost savings that were previously outsourced. There is also a dramatic savings in professional staff and faculty workloads as they no longer spend hours at the copiers. The upgrade of this equipment will be beneficial for the Printing and Graphics/Visual Communications students by helping them to understand the overall printing process workflow. In addition, the Xerox School to Work curriculum is designed to coordinate with the PrintEd digital Production Printing accreditation. Local funds are available for this expenditure. 2) Atlanta Technical College, 300 Optiplex 755 Minitower computers from Dell; total cost $271,079.00. Discussion: Computers are needed to upgrade instructional labs and classrooms. These computers will upgrade old computers and allow ATC to expand the number of computers offered for instructional, open lab and tutorial purposes. Local funds (technology fees) are available for this expenditure. 1

Bond funds are available for this expenditure. 4) Griffin Technical College, 4 Mac Pro laptops, 104 iMac desktops, computer peripherals and AppleCare protection plan from Apple; total cost $169,052.00. Discussion: These computers will be used to upgrade/replace computers in existing labs. The older computers will be utilized in another instructional area within the college. The computers with the higher unit cost are needed to provide the ability to teach specialized and advanced lab applications in the CIS/Video lab department which require MacIntosh platforms and software applications available from Apple.

Discussion: The increase in enrollment in the Commercial Photography Program has exceeded the capacity of the current MacIntosh Computer lab. GTC has also initiated the Digital Imaging and New Media Design programs. Both of these program courses require use of the MacIntosh computer lab. The addition of the MacIntosh lab will facilitate all classes and allow additional student enrollment in both program areas. Provisioning both labs with identical equipment will reduce scheduling issues and technical support, and ensure the best environment for student learning. Local funds are available for this expenditure. 6) Gwinnett Technical College, 200 desktop computers for student labs/classrooms ($199,954), and 144 computers for faculty/staff ($149,716) from Dell; total cost $349,700.00.
