New JLab Account Codes for EDP Hardware - to Meet Reporting Requirements

Sent on behalf of JLab's Chief Financial Officer, Joe Scarcello:

Good Morning,

New account numbers have been set up for Electronic Data Processing (EDP) Hardware in order for JLab to meet a new DOE reporting requirement for EPEAT (Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool).  To meet these requirements, the old EDP Hardware account code (47-010) is no longer valid.  Please choose from one of the following account code numbers to order EDP type equipment:

- 47-020  Imaging Devices: Printers, Copiers, Scanners, Fax Machines, other imaging devices.

- 47-021  Display Devices: Monitors, Flat Screens, Projectors, Televisions, other display devices.

- 47-022  Computers: Desktops, Laptops, Servers, Workstations, Tablets.

- 47-025  Other EDP Equipment:  Items that do not fit into other 47-XXX series: Keyboards, Mice, Hard Drives, Thumb drives, DVD, etc.

EPEAT is a comprehensive environmental rating system that helps identify greener computers and other electronic equipment.  This program, managed by the Environmental Protection Agency, enables purchasers to compare electronic products based on environmental performance standards, as well as cost and performance considerations.  An Executive Order, signed by President Bush in January 2007, requires government agencies to acquire EPEAT-registered products for at least 95 percent of electronic product acquisitions.

Thank you in advance in helping JLab meet these requirements.
