The current charges per sheet for copying and printing via Papercut are:
The B&W prices are broadly the same as the Print Room’s low volume prices, colour is less expensive but lower quality.
No charge is made for scanning.
It is important that the correct cost centre is chosen so that the costs of printing can be properly attributed. All print jobs will be charged to your default cost centre unless you use the Papercut pop-up to change this. Cost centres for copying can be selected on the copier.
Staff and Research Students can set up their default cost centre and a list of other available cost centres by using the web application at http://www.eng.cam.ac.uk/app/finance/printing/manage. (Undergraduates will normally only have access to their Personal cost centre.) If you need to use a cost centre other than the one currently set as your default for printing, you will need to use the Papercut pop-up when submitting the job. Divisional policy varies on what cost centres should be included in your list of available cost centres and you should check with your Divisional Administrator before adding cost centres (some administrators prefer to maintain these lists themselves). If you add a cost centre outside your own Division, the administrator for that Division will be automatically alerted.
Users must only use those cost centres which they are authorised to use. All usage is recorded.
Any member of the Department may pay into their Personal Budget via the Department’s EPOS system. Undergraduates and some others on taught courses are given an initial quota in their personal account sufficient for the printing associated with their course. The personal account should be used for all personal copying and printing. This account must contain sufficient credit to print a job before it is selected (including implicitly as the default cost centre), otherwise the job may be automatically deleted.
The default cost centre is the one to which print jobs will be charged unless an alternative is selected using the Papercut pop-up. It will also be used for copying unless an alternative is chosen on the copier.
For printing, if you need to use a cost centre other than the one currently set as your default, you will need to have the Papercut pop-up on your computer. Please contact the IT Helpdesk to arrange to have this installed and activated.
