There are many different printer options available to clients from desktop inkjet to LaserJet or all-in-one printer, scanner, and copiers. To select the right printer, please consider the following:
- What do you print?
- Do you need color prints?
- What size paper do you need to print?
- Do you print envelopes? What quantity?
- How much do you print?
- How much physical space is available for the printer?
- How many people will use the printer?
- Will confidential documents be printed?
- Do you want a multi-functional device?
- Does the printer need to be mobile?
Most printers use consumables; such as ink, fusers, rollers. If any consumable needs to be replaced, it is the responsibility of the agency to purchase. If the printer breaks and needs a repair part, and the cost of the part exceeds 40 percent of the value of the printer, the agency will be billed for the part.
If the printer contains a hard drive, it is important for the printer to be surplused to the BIT Parts Center. The printer hard drive may contain copies of printed items and the drive needs to be “wiped” or removed before the printer becomes property of the Bureau of Administration (BOA).
