Computer Advance Program

To help colleges, schools, and administrative departments provide faculty and staff with appropriate computing hardware and software, the FY 2004 Computer Advance Program (CAP) will provide $750 towards the purchase of up to 100 UVM-configured Windows and Macintosh systems and standard UVM software. Aimed at replacing the most deficient systems for individual faculty and staff, the program is intended to help departments acquire appropriate technology despite budget stresses, to increase standardization, and to encourage life-cycle replacement budgeting.


Software support is ending for some Windows and Macintosh versions, and CAP subsidies provide a good opportunity to upgrade to newer software so that support is not interrupted.  The following software will go off support before the next round of CAP subsidies:


     System                                  Last Day for UVM Support

     Macintosh OS System 8.x      Dec. 31, 2003

     Macintosh OS System 9.x      Dec. 31, 2003

     Windows 98                        June 30, 2004


The CAP Web pages (http://www.uvm.edu/cit/cap) describe eligibility requirements, how to apply, and this year's CAP hardware and software selections.  Deadline dates for applications and purchases are:


    * Applications must be received by Monday, November 30, 2003.

    * Decisions will be announced before the end of the calendar year.

    * Computers must be purchased by January 31, 2004.


If you have questions about CAP that aren't addressed in the CAP Web pages, please write to cap@uvm.edu.
