Supply Chain issues and Hardware Delays

You may be aware of the serious shortages in global supplies of parts and materials currently affecting a great many industries around the world. These shortages — amongst other logistical issues —have affected the supplier of the Card Access equipment used at Carleton. In some instances, this has resulted in extensive delays in the fulfillment of orders. CBORD has not provided a timeline on when the issue will be fully resolved, but do not expect a return to normal this fiscal year.

Current and New Card Access Projects

As a result of the delay in receiving Card Access hardware, all current and new project installations are on hold.

If you have a current project in the queue there a few options

  1. Cancel your eShop request and the project and resubmit when we reopen;
  2. Cancel your eShop request but keep your project open and in the queue, we will reach out when hardware starts shipping;
  3. Leave the eShop request active and we will contact you when hardware starts shipping.

Please reply to with your preference for your project.

We will reopen the Project Request sheet on the CSS Technical Services website once we are accepting new projects
