Free com­put­ers to go to the com­mu­nity

Isis Town and Country - - NEWS GIN GIN NEWS -

COULD a good sec­ond-hand com­puter and mon­i­tor make your work as a not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion much eas­ier?

Fol­low­ing a re­cent tech­nol­ogy up­grade, the Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil has a num­ber of sur­plus com­put­ers and mon­i­tors avail­able for dis­tri­bu­tion to lo­cal not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tions and groups.

The coun­cil’s gov­er­nance and com­mu­ni­ca­tions port­fo­lio spokes­woman Cr He­len Black­burn said the coun­cil was seek­ing ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est from not-for-profit groups that may wish to ac­cess the com­puter equip­ment.

“The com­put­ers are in good work­ing or­der and would be ideal for smaller or­gan­i­sa­tions that may wish to ar­chive club records, present pro­fes­sional cor­re­spon­dence or main­tain financial records,” Cr Black­burn said.

All of the com­put­ers and mon­i­tors are about three years old and in great work­ing con­di­tion.

How­ever, it is im­por­tant to note they will be dis­trib­uted through­out the com­mu­nity with no war­ranty or I.T. sup­port ser­vice.

“Clubs or or­gan­i­sa­tions with an in­ter­est in sourc­ing th­ese com­put­ers are in­vited to con­tact the coun­cil of­fices and giv­ing de­tails of their or­gan­i­sa­tion,the in­tended use of the com­puter and the num­ber of com­put­ers re­quested,” Cr Black­burn said.

The not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tions must be domi­ciled within the Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil bound­ary.

Ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est need to be lodged by email to busi­ness@bund­aberg.qld .gov.au by close of busi­ness on Au­gust 19.

The coun­cil will con­tact all re­spon­dents re­gard­ing dis­tri­bu­tion of the com­puter hard­ware to or­gan­i­sa­tions in the re­gion.

Don’t leave it too late, or you will miss out.
