What is the difference between an MPS printer (Managed Print Service) and an exempted printer?

  • MPS Devices (Managed Print Services)
    • These are machines purchased by Kent State prior to the COPI implementation, but covered for support and supplies by ComDoc at a reduced cost. These machines have ComDoc ID tags stickered to the front with contact information for ComDoc and a unique ID code. When these devices stop working, the responsible department will need to engage COPI and ComDoc to get a new Xerox device as a replacement.
  • Exempted (Waived) Devices
    • These are devices for which a waiver has been submitted and approved by the COPI Committee. Departments have permission to use Kent State moneys to purchase toner and other supplies for these machines, as well as replacing them in the event they stop working.
