Services and Costs

TLC Enterprise is the required offering, tailored to colleges and divisions with robust IT staffing who primarily need to leverage TLC’s inventory, security practices, and device management. 

  • UITS funded, no cost to unit for service 

  • Unit must refresh hardware when hardware can no longer run operating systems actively managed and patched by UEM

TLC Extended provides colleges and divisions with a full suite of services, including components from the TLC Enterprise option, plus outstanding user and unit-level support. 

  • $500 per FTE, per year for support service 

  • Unit must refresh hardware on TLC schedule (4 years for Windows, 5 years for Macs) 

See more specifics about the two service levels.


Before your department can be scheduled, it must have:

  • University O365 email
  • CatNet 2.0 Active Directory
  • Any local file shares moved to cloud
  • IT staff access to ServiceNow ticketing

UITS introduces the support team to employees, with next steps and answers to questions.

UITS inventories all the desktops, laptops, and tablets currently used by employees.

  • This includes all unit-owned workstations for benefits-eligible faculty and staff. It does not include DCC or student worker workstations, research equipment, labs, or classrooms.

UITS Desktop Support will bring workstations into alignment with best practices for security and configuration.
