TAF PROCESS

TAF funds are required to be spent in the year collected. Projects are approved by line items, not by dollars. Because projects are not allocated dollars, any savings through the purchase process are collected in the overall TAF accounts and used to balance the TAF accounts at the end of the year. Purchases requested past March may not receive funding. The TAF committee revised the allocation process in October 2012.  For all the allocation processes, please follow this LINK

The Committee allocates $4,366,300 among the following seven categories. Any additional dollars are allocated by the Instructional Technology Committee among these seven categories as needed based on university priorities. The TAF budget for the 2017-2018 fiscal year is $4.366 million.

  • Category 1 Infrastructure ($400,000)
  • Category 2 Repair, Replacement, and Renovation ($1,012,459)
  • Category 3 Recurring Costs ($933,222)
  • Category 4 Discipline Specific Equipment ($904,000)
  • Category 5 New Master Classrooms / Master Classroom Carts ($438,941)
  • Category 6 Open Technology Based Learning Spaces ($200,000)
  • Category 7 Enterprise Software ($477,678)
