The Instructional Technology Committee is now accepting proposals for the Technology Access Fees (TAF) for the 2024-2025 fiscal year. The online proposal form can be found above. The deadline for proposals is Wednesday, January 31, 2024, at 4:00 pm CST.
Each department/school and college may submit one proposal for two categories: Category 4 discipline-specific equipment and Category 5 classroom technology. Proposals for category 6 open computer labs will also be accepted from the four TAF subsidized University Computer Labs in BAS, Library, Adaptive Technology, and the STU. Please remember that older equipment may not be eligible for TAF instructional emergency and should be placed on a TAF proposal to have it replaced.
For construction estimates, contact Terri Carlton (email@example.com) and for technology estimates, contact James Copeland (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please have these requests to them no later than January 8, 2024. For general questions, call or email Maria Knox (email@example.com).
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 2020. For all the allocation processes, please follow this LINK.
The Committee allocates $4,113,100 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 2022-2023 fiscal year is $4.113 million.
- Category 1 Infrastructure ($400,000)
- Category 2 Repair, Replacement, and Renovation ($912,259)
- Category 3 Recurring Costs ($780,222)
- Category 4 Discipline Specific Equipment ($904,000)
- Category 5 Smart Classrooms ($438,941)
