Managed Print Service (MPS) Initiatives

Managed Print Service (MPS) Initiatives is Fredonia’s commitment to the SUNY-wide effort to reduce costs, increase operational efficiencies, and implement secure, and sustainable printing practices across campus.

The State University of New York's System-wide Print Resource Use Policy (6902) was approved by SUNY Systems Administration on February 1, 2021. This policy is to facilitate the appropriate and acceptable use of State University of New York (University) print resources by University employees (full- and part-time) and authorized individuals. The University's print objectives are to reduce cost, waste, print, and paper, simplify and standardize the printer fleet (both single-function and multifunction printers), and secure and optimize the print environment.

In furtherance of this policy, the University has established the following goals to be achieved by July 2023:

  • Achieve a total cost per copy (TCC) of <$.01xx;
  • Have 100% of print devices secure and on a campus network;
  • Eliminate all locally attached desktop devices;
  • Reduce the number of 2020 SFP by more than 50%;
  • Increase the usage of two-sided (duplex) printing 100%;
  • Increase 2020 device utilization by more than 100%;
  • Reduce 2020 color print volume by 50%; and
  • Reduce 2020 mono volume by 40%.

Based on the mandates expressed in this policy, an MPS Task Force was formed for the implementation of the SUNY System-wide Print Resource Use - Procedure (6903)

The MPS Task Force has been charged to:

  • Review, monitor information, and provide recommendations
  • Prioritize areas/departments with a high number of desktop printers
  • Train employees in regard to the use and advantages of networked printing
  • Train employees to promote secure and sustainable printing practices
  • Increase the utilization of centralized printing
  • Understand total “Fredonia” print total cost ownership and work toward centralizing the budget
  • Provide regular communication of expectations and results to the campus community
