Print Management Assessment


Smith has contracted with CBS Xerox (CBS) to manage print production. Print production includes printing and copying on campus at Copy & Print Services and printing material being created at off-campus printers. CBS is going to help Smith College by conducting an assessment and forming a print library of previously produced documents. As part of this new print plan, CBS will conduct what they call a “360 assessment”. A CBS consultant will start reaching out to departments in the next few weeks to schedule a time/date to meet and provide a survey that will include questions pertaining to what is being printed, the quantities being printed, how often it is being printed, where it is being printed, what time of year it is being printed, and lastly the price paid for the printed documents. CBS will use the information gathered to help the college plan, organize, and improve its overall printing process. Please help them by providing the information requested. If you have questions about the process, please contact Linda Hiesiger, Procurement/Auxiliary Services Director, at ext. 2231.
