TERRITORIAL OFFICER COMPUTER POLICY TERRITORIAL OFFICER COMPUTER POLICY All active officers and cadets are provided a single computer by the territory. The officer is to keep their assigned computer for a minimum of 48 months. The officer should keep their computer clean and in good working order, including properly protecting it when in transit. Any necessary repairs or improvements should only be done by or under the guidance of the Territorial Information Technology Department. Once the computer assigned to an officer is at least 48 months old, the officer can submit a request to the Territorial Information Technology Department for a new computer. Appropriate accessories for the computer as approved by the Territorial Information Technology Department can be acquired at time of purchase. The officer will be allowed to purchase their previous computer when they receive a new computer, for 15% of the original cost of their previous computer. If the officer does not want to purchase their previous computer, it will be returned to the Territorial Information Technology Department. All computers will be outright capital purchases by the territory. They will no longer be leased. As this is an asset of the territory and not of any specific division or command, approval will not be needed from an officer’s assigned division/command leadership or finance council but instead will be processed through the IT Department for approval and replacement. The Secretary for Business Administration, working in conjunction with the Territorial Information Technology Director, will maintain the list of approved computers from which the officer can choose their new computer. If an officer’s assigned computer is no longer a viable computer for them to accomplish their job and that assigned computer is not at least 48 months old, they will be assigned another computer from existing surplus inventory. They will not be eligible for a new computer until it has been at least 48 months from the date their original assigned computer was purchased. This includes instances when the computer is no longer viable due to theft or loss. The computer is the property of the territory, therefore all officers or cadets are required to return it to the Territorial Information Technology Department upon termination or resignation. Upon an officer’s retirement, they will be allowed to keep their currently assigned computer as their own personal property, provided it is at least six months old. This policy does not cover envoys, or officers working in post-retirement service. Any computers assigned to them will be purchased through their local or Divisional offices, and be the property of that location, and will need to go through the proper approval process for that division/command. There will be no exceptions to this policy without the approval of the Chief Secretary. Sincerely, Douglas Riley, Colonel CHIEF SECRETARY www.salvationarmy.usawest.org Have more questions?
