IT Asset Management and Disposal

The Office of the CIO has published an Enterprise Guideline on the management and disposal of IT Assets.  This Guideline was developed in response to a recommendation from our Audit Services department. 

IT Assets require distinct tracking and disposal procedures for security and legislative compliance reasons.  The Guideline provides advice focused on preventing inadvertent disclosure of sensitive information stored on computing equipment including desktop and portable computers, mobile devices and printers/copiers.

The Guideline provides suggestions for:  1) maintaining inventory control of acquired IT equipment and licensed software;  2) ensuring administrative good practice is followed for equipment that is redeployed, recycled, or otherwise disposed of.

The full guideline is here.
