Title
AN ORDINANCE restricting the expenditure of moneys for the replacement of desktop computers.
Body
STATEMENT OF FACTS:
1.  King County faces serious financial challenges in 2010.
2.  The chief information officer prepared the report titled King County IT Budget Advisory for 2010 Budget Year, which identifies potential savings opportunities related to information technology.

4.  The King County IT Budget Advisory for 2010 Budget Year recommended departments avoid purchasing new desktop computers in 2010.
      BE IT ORDAINED BY THE COUNCIL OF KING COUNTY:
      SECTION 1.  Moneys may not be used for the replacement of desktop computers in 2010 unless the computers are broken, are impairing productivity and business operations or are needed to meet the accountable business transformation project requirements.
