Funded Action Plans Fall 2008

The Technology Fee Advisory Committee (TFAC) received seven proposals requesting a total of $1,279,024.80 in the Fall 2008 Call for Proposals on October 1, 2008. The committee met to review the proposals on October 30. The designated primary reviewer and secondary reviewers of each proposal gave summary statements to the committee regarding the proposal, citing any issues or concerns or general feeling about recommendations for or against funding. After considerable discussion the TFAC made funding recommendation to the Bonnie Neas, Vice President for Information Technology.

Vice President Neas further reviewed the proposals and committee recommendations and approved funding in the following way:
