Staff-Use Photocopy Machine Task Force (2002-2003)


Jane Fama (Chair and Champion), Matthew Clark, John Hemenway, Pat Joyce, Amanda Noe, Judy Nordberg, Mary Piorun, Jan Sohigian


The charge of the Staff-Use Photocopy Machine Task Force is to examine the needs of the ILL/DD, Technical Services, Reference, Circulation, Systems and Administrative staff with regards to photocopy machine use to perform their daily work. Once the needs have been determined, the Task Force is asked to make recommendations for new machines for staff use.

The Task Force is expected to:

  • define the needs,
  • select machines to test,
  • test machines, and
  • make a recommendation to the Management Team.

The recommendation will be in writing and outline the features of the recommended machine(s), prices, and pros and cons or reasons why the model (s) was recommended. The Task Force must select from the pre-approved state list of vendors only. No other vendors will be considered. Because machines will come from the pre-approved list, they will be in place for three years, per the state contract rules. The recommendation may include more than one machine model based on needs of staff users; however, preference is to go with one vendor. There may be more than one recommendation or series of recommendations made; but given in priority order.

The Management Team will make the final decision based on the work of the Task Force.
