The committee approved the Oct. 4, 2001 minutes.
Richard Chenoweth reviewed the FY02 budget and reminded the committee that the budget reflects an estimated income that we will can anticipate working with this year. From July 1, 2001 until Nov. 13 - we have taken in $519,586 in fees. Questions were raised as to whether we could/should consider renegotiation of the bond payment with interest rates so low. We probably cannot do anything as this is a University System bond.
Duties of the various subcommittees were reviewed and members we're asked to join a subcommittee to work on.
Responsible for assessing the procedure used by the committee in reviewing the spring and fall proposals. The committee will suggest the procedure to be used this spring. This committee will also review the Call for Action Plans information (or request for proposals form) used.
