Oklahoma Workstation Standards
OMES Information Services has updated the state standards for workstations to meet the needs of the modern workforce and adjusted the acquisition process in order to comply with the requirements of the IT Consolidation and Coordination Act. All configurations and prices include all base licensing and services required to comply with state IT Standards and the Oklahoma IT Security policy.
All state agencies.
The state workstation standards include additional services and software to manage the entire workstation lifecycle, including but not limited to:
- Pre-loaded state software image. Workstation deployed with all standard software installed.
- Enhanced hardware support. Warranty includes 24x7 remote vendor support, and next day on-site vendor support.
- Geo-tracking capabilities. Ability to physically locate assets if connected to a network.
- Streamlined installation and removal process. Image, tag and deploy computers to your location. Remove and dispose of workstations according to EPA regulations. Provide an end-of-life certificate of destruction.
Workstation Operating Procedures
Workstation operating procedures document the operating standard for workstations required by our agency partners, employees and authorized contractors for official state business use.
- The Workstation Acquisition Standard Operating Procedure identifies the acquisition standards for workstations.
- The Workstation Configuration Standard Operating Procedure identifies the configuration standards for workstations.
- The Workstation Exceptions Standard Operating Procedure identifies the process for exceptions to compliance with the workstation standards.
- The Workstation Lifecycle Standard Operating Procedure identifies the product lifecycle for workstations.
- The Workstation Warranty Standard Operating Procedure identifies the warranty standard for workstations.
OMES partnered with industry leaders to provide competitive leasing options for desktops, laptops and tablets. Leasing workstations provides the following benefits:
- Budgeting is easier. Consistent allocation of funds each year for technology refresh.
- Current technology and warranty. Leased systems refresh every three years, are under warranty and insured.
- It is the state standard. Purchasing workstations requires an exception.
- Controls cost. Old devices and those not under warranty are more expensive to maintain and drive up support costs for all agencies.
- Better security. Older hardware is not guaranteed to run modern security tools. Weak links increase the risk for all agencies.
How It Works
- Agency works with OMES IT Strategist and Account Executive to determine the type of computers the agency needs.
- Agencies can order leased devices directly from their agency’s Dell Premier Account with their agency PO. (Contact your agency Account Executive for access if you don’t have it).
- Devices will bereceived, imaged, tagged, and deployed to customers onsite.
- OMES will work with agencies to replace or remove workstations, recycle and provide an end-of-life certificate of destruction at the end of the three year lease.
