Maintenance, Assessment & Analysis Services

51-57 Maintenance Service Agreement For Copiers

This SIN includes a maintenance service agreement consisting of preventative and repair (remedial) services. Preventative consists of those scheduled service calls necessary to maintain the equipment in first-class operating condition (e.g., cleaning, lubricating, adjusting, and replacing parts when needed).

Repair (remedial) services consist of those unscheduled service calls necessary for repairs not caused by fire, water, accident, and fluctuations in electrical power or customer abuse.

The Maintenance Service Agreement and Repair Service include the cost of labor, transportation, replacement/spare parts, (excluding consumable operating supplies). The greater the distance from the maintenance facility to the user the higher the monthly fees. In the event the Government's equipment requires initial repair or overhaul prior to acceptance by the contractor for coverage under a maintenance service agreement, the charges for such repairs, including replacement parts and labor, and for a complete rebuilding or overhauling of Government's equipment are usually not included in the preventative service agreement.

Needs Assessment and Analysis Services consist of a comprehensive assessment of the customer's existing objectives, capabilities and, funding obligations which will provide agency's recommendation(s) on how to meet or exceed organization's overall performance by providing total office solutions.

Regardless of the specific approach and strategies described in the technical proposal for each work segment, the work in general shall include consulting services, and other related services.

The Benefits of In-House Production Printing vs Outsourced Printing

Modern print technology has made it possible to produce large volumes of high-quality printed material right in the office. Depending on the size of your office, and your organization’s needs, print solutions are available in-house that in the past were only found at professional print facilities. In fact, print technology is so good now, particularly the multifunction printer (MFP), that many commercial print shops use the same machines found in many offices.

So, aside from the availability of professional equipment, why are many businesses now considering bringing production printing capabilities in-house?

Read on to learn more about the factors involved when considering in-house production printing vs. outsourced commercial printing, including:

  • Cost savings
  • Security
  • Control
  • Convenience and timing

How to Take Stress Off Your IT Department: Go Hybrid


Outsourced IT professionals can support existing departments.

Partnering with a managed IT services provider (MSP) for a Hybrid IT approach enhances your internal IT department with much-needed support, specialized skills and more — without the expense of adding headcount.

Not every business has the staff within their existing organization that they may need, especially with today's quickly-evolving technology landscape

As Gordon Haff states in his article, Why IT Went Hybrid (And Why It Matters), "it's probably impossible to do everything in-house — and it's certainly not economically sensible." 

Haff is right on target, as more and more situations require specialized skills, such as those specific to cybersecurity, physical security, strategic planning or technology upgrade projects. When these situations arise, a company that attempts to solely handle them in-house, on top of their existing workload, can put too much weight on internal IT departments, leaving them less likely to succeed.

Read on to learn how we partner with many of our clients to alleviate these stresses, because your team deserves the resources and support necessary to succeed.
