Registering a Laptop:
Every laptop must have a caretaker. Each department that has a laptop(s) must have a sign out sheet indicating who has the laptop. This information should be sent to the IT department's Help Desk unit each time there is a change of the caretaker.
Laptops Out of Their Campus Offices:
When a caretaker takes the laptop out of his/her office, she/he is expected to keep the laptop in hand or sight, or in a secure and locked location, at all times.
Reporting a Theft:
If a College-owned laptop is stolen, its caretaker is expected to immediately file a theft report with the IT Help Desk unit and with that specific campuses Security unit. If traveling, the caretaker must also report the theft to the local law enforcement agency. The department responsible for a laptop must pay for a replacement.
Ending Employment at the College:
A caretaker must return the laptop to the College before their ending date of employment. The IT department will provide a list of laptops and caretakers to Human Resources. At the meeting with Human Resources the laptop, keys, and other items will be collected. Failure to turn in the laptop may result in withholding payments, as well as more serious penalties, until the laptop is returned.
