<p>KLT ASSET INVENTORY PROJECT - SCOPE STATEMENTProject Overview BackgroundKuala Lumpur TechSystems (KLT) has engaged Occidental Technology Resources (OTR) to refresh and manage their administration desktop and server technology under the KLT Refreshment Management Project. As part of this agreement, the current inventory of administration desktops within the KLT organization needs to be located and identified during the inventory component of an approved Managed Services Contract (MSC). To facilitate replacement priority for the systems within this inventory, specific information about each asset is required. Therefore, the preliminary requirements of OTR and KLT are: to locate and identify all administration desktops; and to gather the asset information using cost effective and efficient tools. These inventory activities have been assigned to EduClear Project Solutions as a sub-project to meet the requirements.</p> <p>ObjectivesThe specific objectives of this project are to: Locate all Administration desktop computers, laptop computers, and monitors as defined within the scope of the KLT Refreshment Management Project (Administration workstations are defined as desktop computers, monitors, and laptops identified by KLT as used by administration staff within KLT.) Physically gather inventory data on all located assets Conduct an electronic inventory of all Administration computers Reconcile the physical inventory with the electronically gathered inventory Provide the reconciled data to OTR in the required format The inventory services and the product deliverables will be provided to OTR as the client. Information will be gathered from KLT and it is up to OTR to decide which information to provide to KLT as part of this agreement.</p> <p>Project PhasesThis sub-project will be conducted in a five phase approach.

Acceptance Criteria To be accepted, the inventory report must include a list of all assets with all information defined in the description provided in MS Access XP format.</p> <p>Service Deliverables:Deliverable 6: Physical Inventory Description The physical inventory of Administration assets involves locating the assets, applying barcode labels, gathering inventory data, and scrubbing the data for quality and consistency. All inventory data gathering will be done using the most efficient and effective means possible including the use of barcode scanners and manual entry of information. Technical Specifications Each Site Inventory will consist of the following processes: 1. 2. 3. 4. Site Walk Through The Baseline Inventory Data Accuracy Verification Site Finalization</p> <p>Each individual asset will have a bar-coded asset label placed on it; then it will be inventoried. Assets to be labeled and inventoried are as follows: Desktop / Tower Computer(s)</p> <p>www.educlear.com</p> <p>4 of 11</p> <p>Laptop Computer(s) Computer Monitor(s)</p> <p>Assets will be labeled according to the following guidelines, which will be included in the Asset Type/Brand Reader Boards. Label placement for each type of asset will be as follows:</p> <p>= Asset Label</p> <p>Both tower- and desktop-oriented computer CPUs will be labeled on the front panelBack View</p> <p>The brand is generally found on the front while the model and serial numbers are found on the back for most models. IBM and Compaq may have the model number on the side.</p> <p>= Asset Label Asset labels should be placed on the underside of the unit. Model and serial numbers will be found on the underside of the unit.</p> <p>www.educlear.com</p> <p>5 of 11</p> <p>= Asset Label</p> <p>Monitors will be found on desktops attached to computers and some laptops.
