“Through innovation Computer Services will guide MCA programs into future technologies”
Computer Services was originally introduced in January 1989 by Henry Lickers, Director of Environment. At the time, his was the only computer that existed at MCA. Once the need was recognized, MCA’s number of computers increased dramatically and Computers Services was formed.
Today, Computer Services oversees the maintenance, repair, upgrades, etc. of more than 600 computers and we are currently in the process of increasing our number of staff to accommodate the need.
