Desktop Support Contract Services

Campus units requiring additional IT desktop support personnel to meet surge, project, or event staffing needs are able to contract with ITS to receive help from the Neighborhood IT desktop support group within ITS.

The types of traditional desktop support duties may vary by unit need. Desktop support staff members will be matched to requirements of each engagement and will work within the local environment by utilizing unit-provided tools and processes. Units are responsible for providing training/orientation. ITS technologies, including desktop technologies and service management tools, are not included with this service.
