Dear Lews Castle College,

Thousands of pounds are spent on electricity for PC's each year. I

If you do use a software tool, what is it and what is the annual
cost of support & maintenance?
c) Who is responsible for paying electricity bills for the
College (Name and Role)?
d) Does that College have a Green IT policy for reduction of
carbon emissions?

Yours faithfully,

Martin McKenna

Dear Mr McKenna

The answers to your questions are as follows:

(a) There are 421 PCs at Lews Castle College

(b) The College ICT technicians use an in-house software package for
power management of these PCs, which has been developed and is maintained
by our ICT staff at no additional cost to the College.

(c) The Director of Finance & Corporate Services, Mr Iain Macmillan, has
ultimate responsibility for ensuring that electricity bills for the
College are paid.

(d) We do not have a specific Green IT Policy but we do have a carbon
management policy which includes all aspects of College business including
IT.

I hope this information meets with your requirements.

Yours sincerely
