Print management

The Print Management Initiative is UCOP’s effort to improve the efficiency, quality, cost, sustainability and management of print devices and related services throughout all four office locations in downtown Oakland.

UCOP has selected Xerox to provide comprehensive printing equipment and management services with the dual goal of ensuring that staff have the equipment and support they need to be productive while also achieving operational efficiencies and sustainable practices.

Individuals will not be asked to give up existing desktop printers at this time but will be expected to print to the state-of-the-art machines in time.  Additionally, the old printers will not be replaced as they fall out of warranty or into disrepair; naturally, exceptions will be made for individuals with special needs.
