Printer Purchase and Management Standards

Purpose

This standard is intended to offer printers that satisfy most end user printing needs while maximizing cost efficiency and environmental sustainability.  It is also intended to create a foundation for effective printing management practices.  Important principles underlying this standard include:  reducing power and paper consumption; reducing waste; reducing cost; and reducing the need for printer support, while also improving printer support.

Application

  • This standard applies to faculty and staff of Indiana State University.
  • This standard applies when decisions are being made about purchasing a printer.  It also applies when default printer settings are being entered.

Exceptions

Exceptions to procurement standards may be granted with proper approvals. .
