Jeff opened the meeting by bringing everyone up-to-date on funding issues. There are approximately $330,000 dollars currently in the tech fee account. It’s estimated that there will be around $900,000 coming in for fall 07. Jeff indicated there should be $60,000 being returned to the fund as a result of unspent monies from previous proposals. That would give the committee approximately $960,000 to work with for this spring’s funding cycle.
Jeff briefly acknowledged the 5 proposals received and asked for volunteers to be “reviewers” of each proposal. The primary reviewers would be responsible to make contact with the project director to investigate further the proposer’s ideas and clarify questions. There are two primary reviewers assigned to each proposal.
Primary Reviews for the five Action Plans submitted are:
