Printing Enhancement Project Delay
Project timeline being adjusted

During the summer, the printing enhancement project (PEP) team completed their vendor proposal review and scoring. However, the team wants to be transparent that the final review of the recommended solutions is taking longer than expected. This puts us three weeks past the anticipated decision announcement (early July). While this delays the implementation timeline until after the start of the Fall semester, the team wants to make a sound, thoughtful decision rather than rush.

Currently, the project timeline is being reworked to factor in this delay and to provide a more realistic implementation timeline. This timeline will take into consideration peak activity times during the school year to minimize inconveniences.  

What this means for campus:
  1. If your department is relocating to Chapman, the ITS team will coordinate moving your existing equipment. 
  2. If you need to order ink, paper, or other printing accessories, please do so. 
  3. For multifunction printer toner please continue to order through Rob Salas.
  4. Purchasing of new printers is paused during this project. However, if you need to order or service a printer, please reach out to for approval.

Any decisions will be shared with the campus community along with implementation details and next steps. Once a decision is made, the selected vendor will work with the PEP team and campus offices to refine an implementation plan. 

If you have any questions, please email or visit the website.

The PEP team will continue to keep you updated as progress is made.
