being addressed at the University level. The question brought forth was--Is
the work at the College level beneficial if the University level is being
reviewed? Individuals serving on the University Committee shared comments
about their work. Structure will definitely be changed at the University
level. Discussion followed.
Projects—Bill outlined a procedure that Rob Cramer would like to implement
regarding all technology projects on campus. The format would be that all
projects would be prioritized within the College and then forwarded to the
committee for funding and resources to make the project happen. Any
technology project that is larger than $10,000 or more than 120 hours of
OIT involvement needs to be requested through this process. This will
include DIN requests. Discussion followed. If you have additional input,

this looked like a fair policy. It is necessary for the moving expenses
come from Foundation funds. Discussion followed. Please review and share
changes with Bill.

Group—Proposed budget worksheet was shared. General comments were shared
by Bill. He indicated that the total amount in each category is more
important than what accounts/areas are funding the categories. Discussion
followed. Please review this sheet and share comments.

form that would assist with staffing requirements and identify those areas
that are not covered. He would like the non-instructional activities also
included as a justification of time allocation. Discussion followed.
