Dependent service

Following assumptions were made:

  • A standard user is considered as having 1 desktop and 1 or 2 monitors.As part of the request an Office Move survey form is completed (on location by CCS or electronically by the requester)
  • Konica requires 5 days’ notice to move an MFD and 14 days’ notice to procure a new MFD
  • The office layout of the new location is approved by Queen Mary H&S to ensure all existing and potential health and safety issues have been resolved.
  • There is sufficient power and networking capacity in the destination location.
  • Where 3rd parties are involved with any IT component of the move (e.g. BT fibre move, Cliff equipment move) the service level will be dependent and adjusted according to the 3rd party Service Level.
  • The destination location does not require major/significant building works; it is in an acceptable state of readiness for a move
  • NHS staff moves require a longer timescales due to the complexity of the arrangement between QM and the NHS
