IT Moves

PREPARATION

BMG IT teams use our IT Audit Sheet to track the movement of the equipment. This is completed by the IT Teams prior to decommissioning commencing to record the equipment to be moved at each desk location, its condition any specific information necessary. On recommission it is checked and signed off at the end of the move by the Team leader. It groups the individual pieces of kit for each user into a manageable heading and tracks everything by the CPU asset number. If this is unavailable, then the User’s name & origin desk number will be the tracking header. If a machine fails to boot to logon prompt, then the IT Mover makes a note of it both here and on the IT Move Sheet. The IT Team Leader will attempt to fix any faults. If this fails, then the machine is flagged by way of a Business Moves label and we will notify the BG IT team for this to be rectified.
