Effective Date: 7/1/14

RE: Computer System Purchases

It is our mission to provide standard technology throughout the University to ensure a reduction in the overall cost as well as to remain in compliance with state guidelines.

The University of New Orleans has established a standardized configuration for laptops and desktops that will fit the needs of individuals and departments on campus.  University Computing and Communications (UCC) is responsible for providing the UNO community with computer system recommendations that will provide a secure and stable networking environment. 

All laptop and desktop computers that access UNO computing systems are required to be on the UNO network domain, to have updated operating systems and virus protection, and to follow the hardware standards indicated in this document.  A list of recommended standards has been developed for networked computers based on the Louisiana Office of Information Technology (OIT) current guidelines.  This list can be found in the UCC site under Purchasing Equipment

All computer requests should be emailed to UCC at projectsgroup@uno.edu prior to submitting a requisition to the Purchasing department. Once the request has been reviewed and approved by the UCC department, the end user will pick up from the approved tier computer listing and submit a requisition to Purchasing.  Any requests that go directly to Purchasing without prior UCC approval will be returned.  Make sure that UCC approval is tied to the purchase requisition.

On August 21st, the Mississippi Enterprise for Technology (MSET) will be hosting business matchmaking sessions at the Marine Technology Society's Oceans In Action Workshop. Oceans In Action focuses on the accomplishments of the government agencies, universities, and other industry organizations within the Gulf South region, featuring how marine technology is applied to real-world issues. Matchmaking "anchors" will be those Federal agencies and large prime contractors involved in marine technology in and around Stennis.

In response to a shortage of cyber professionals in the U.S., the National Security Administration is reaching out to a younger crowd: college students.

Beginning in 2012, the NSA started its National Centers of Academic Excellence in Cyber Operations Program at select universities across the nation to attract students to the field.

On July 14, the agency announced that five new schools would join the program, bringing the number of participating universities to 13. The new recruits include New York University, Towson University in Maryland, The United States Military Academy, University of Cincinnati and University of New Orleans.
