Southern Teachers and Parents Federal Credit Union (STPFCU)
A semi-agreement was entered into with STPFCU to provide desktop computers for the credit union. After some work and analysis, C2D has suggested that perhaps the purchase and installation of new systems might cause double billing for the same equipment. Discussion has been entered into with the Eldridge Etienne (CEO) to suggest this arrangement would not be the best use of talent and resources.
