IT support for remote access

Support during normal business hours

The IT Service Desk operates Monday to Thursday 7:30am to 5.30pm and from 7:30am to 5pm on the last working day of the week (excluding statutory holidays). Calls can be logged via Hornbill or by phoning 0345 045 1399.

IT support outside business hours

Calls made to the IT Service Desk outside normal service hours will be redirected to a voice mail service and you will be asked to leave a message. You will also need to give your user name, user ID and contact details.

If your message is left between 10am-6pm on a Saturday or Sunday on-call support will be alerted and will respond to you within two hours.

If your message is left outside these times the call will be responded to the following morning unless this is a statutory holiday.

On-call staff will:

  • reset network passwords and unlock network accounts if required.
  • confirm whether or not the Remote Access System is available.
  • investigate whether corporate critical services such as email and logging in are available and attempt to restore if not.
  • Other business systems are investigated on a best endeavours basis.

Please note that:

  • where a non-CCC PC is used for remote access any advice is offered without detailed knowledge of the configuration of the PC and network being used, and any changes you choose to make to your own PC or network configuration as a consequence of this advice are at your own risk
  • Cambridgeshire County Council IT Service is not able to provide support for PCs and networks that it does not manage. If you are unsure about following any of the advice offered please consult your own IT support provider

Essential IT maintenance

Please note: IT regularly carries out essential system maintenance during scheduled Sunday service breaks. This work will lead to periods of system down time although we will ensure this is communicated beforehand and the impact is minimised.
