    Strengths =
    * Customer service/trust
    * Stockroom organization and cleanliness
    * Disposal Management
    Weaknesses =
    * Lack of COM&EDU creates more support requests.
    * Slow ACQ
    * Local IT Asset Database is obsolete and does not support current business initiatives

    * Promote Existing Policy by better utilizing and promote Org’s nationwide Help Desk team and support portal.
    Threats =
    * PRG…Lack of consequences when policies are not followed.
    * PRJ…Walk-ups, instant messaging, 911 requests
    * FIN and Compliance directives tend to be lengthy and time consuming processes
    * IT resource consolidation efforts may potentially leave a void in staff.


    SWOT-We don’t have a high rate of turn over so information is available, we have a new electronic tool to find IT equipment we don’t know about, 95% of all the equipment bought is standard approved items and we are using that electronic tool to help us in audit situations.

    T: Our owner can cut back on our financial room

    Matthew Lepree

    Strength: Quality people in our organization laying the foundation for the future of the program.
    Weakness: Our inventory information needs to be validated and cleaned up, as a lot of old information was imported into our system when we switched tools.
    Opportunities: As we continue to communicate our standards to our customers, hopefully we can increase productivity, accuracy and response times.
    Threat: There is always the threat of someone using their p-card to purchase a non-standard, unapproved item and plugging it into our system. This is why we are trying to communicate as best we can what our standards are and why.
