Business offices across campus work with System Administration in order complete business tasks in coordination with the state.  Certain actions result in the need to print out reports.  This is done by connecting System Administration Printing Services with Linux Cups Print Queues that are connected to printers across the campus.  When the print event is initiated in the Albany system it is queued in their print system and relayed to our Print Queue services.  After the Print Queue services receive the request it redirects it to the desired printer, or holds it depending on the configuration of the Print Queue.  There are also routine procedures executed by System Administration which result in print jobs being submitted and held in the Enterprise Data Services managed Print Queues.
