System Computing Services provides extended technology services and support for the Nevada System of Higher Education System Administration, specifically: the Chancellor’s offices, Nevada Industry Excellence (NIE), Sponsored Projects (EPSCoR), the University of Nevada Press, the Health Sciences System, and System Computing Services itself. These services also extend to the NSHE Board of Regents during scheduled Board meetings and for official board business.
System Administration Technology Support Services include workstation configuration, purchase, setup, maintenance, repair, replacement, surplus, and disposal; network, internet, and file access; e-mail and calendaring services; and essential mobile device and smart phone use.
Also included is support and maintenance of the public, searchable directory of all NSHE System Administration Staff (NSHE Staff Directory) and the Policy Central application that provides access to changes made to the Board of Regents’ Handbook from January 2004 to the present, enabling readers to see the modifications proposed and approved by the Board of Regents.
This group of services also includes support for approved hardware and software, including operating systems, printers, scanners, and other peripheral equipment, the Microsoft Office suite, various Adobe products, official anti-virus software, Microsoft Project, Microsoft Visio, assorted web browsers, and more. Currently SCS uses the Active Directory product for file access. SCS offers ad hoc documentation and orientation services and occasional scheduled training for supported software.
