After approval from the UAO, Purchase hardware and request power and data if not already installed.

Locking machines down:

GPOs (Group Policy Objects) are a good way to set policies in AD-joined windows computers. Use them to prohibit access to the start menu, disable right-click, etc. and we could tweak just-in-case someone did gain access to the desktop.
