XMA have been awarded a contract from Somerset Council to provide them with all their computer related equipment and managed services for the next three years.
As part of the tender process and as XMA’s partner, Concept Management have been chosen for the removal of redundant IT equipment and data disposal.
Somerset Council are very mindful that, although there are regulatory and data disposal requirements when updating equipment, that the authority’s laptops could be put to good use.
With this in mind and in conjunction with Somerset Council, XMA and Concept, we have developed a ‘Care Leaver Programme’ that will allow eligible care leavers receive refurbished laptops once they have reached care leaving age. Eligibility requirements will include starting work through apprenticeships schemes or going on to further education.
If you are a care leaver who is eligible to receive a laptop and have received a code to obtain a laptop, please call 01204 363184 and speak with John Gilbertson who will arrange the laptop delivery.
Laptop specification will be built around a Tier One, dual core, 2gb ram – memory with a 250gb HDD with software.
