To provide the policy and procedure for the purchase and maintenance of television equipment by the various departments.


Purchase of Television Equipment

All requisitions for the purchase of television equipment (cameras, videotape recorders, etc.) must be approved by the Office of Instructional Telecommunications. Approval will indicate that equipment to be purchased is compatible with other equipment on campus and that repair parts are more easily obtainable.

Maintenance of Television Equipment

Radio-Television Broadcast Services will maintain and repair all television equipment purchased under this policy, charging departments for replacement parts and labor. Sufficient replacement parts for approved equipment will be on hand to speed the return of equipment to service.


For the Purchase of Television Equipment

Departments contemplating purchase of television equipment should call the Director of Instructional Telecommunications at 594-2276. He and the media engineer will consult with the department and recommend and specify the best equipment to meet the desired objective. Equipment specified will be compatible (interchangeable) with other equipment on campus and can be easily maintained. The department purchasing the equipment will originate the requisition as outlined in the Purchasing Manual. The Office of Instructional Telecommunications will approve the requisition prior to submission to the dean or department head and the purchasing department.

Upon delivery, staff from the Office of Instructional Telecommunications will inspect the equipment and train individuals in its use. Maintenance will be provided as outlined below.

For the Maintenance or Repair of Television Equipment

Departments possessing any video equipment may request maintenance or repair by calling the Media engineer at 594-2276. He will make the necessary arrangements and keep the department advised of progress and costs.

NOTE: In most cases it will be necessary to transport the equipment to the engineering shop in the radio-television building so that electronic test equipment may be utilized. Departments requesting maintenance service will be responsible for the delivery and pick-up of their equipment.
