New Purchasing Procedures for printing devices
uPrint, McGill’s university-wide printing service is available throughout McGill and has demonstrated that it is a cost-effective, sustainable solution for managing the majority of McGill’s printing needs. To further streamline operations and maintenance costs associated with printing, we are now looking to reduce the number of individual printing devices, which are installed by departments in various offices and are not part of the uPrint network.
Requests to purchase printing devices with University funds will now require the submission of a web form, including a detailed description of the unit’s printing needs and reasons why a uPrint solution would not be feasible. These requests will be approved only in circumstances where a uPrint solution would not be feasible or cost-effective for the University.
