This presentation will examine the implementation and evaluation of help desk outsourcing projects from the perspective of two colleges with different experiences and outcomes. The IT help desk plays a strategic role in fulfilling the academic institution's mission and goals. Today's students expect electronic services on campus 24 x 7. The combined pressure of supporting a diverse technology environment while providing expanded support services has a growing number of institutions considering alternatives like outsourcing the help desk function.
