ITEM 124-1602-R0704                Authorization to Expend up to $50,000 of Student Computer Fees; The University of Montana-Western

 

THAT:                                       The Board of Regents authorizes The University of Montana-Western to expend up to $50,000 of Student Computer Fees to purchase a 'wireless lab' cart and 24 laptop P.C.s.

 

EXPLANATION:                        This expenditure will provide an additional, portable computer lab for use in the Swysgood Technology Center and Library complex. Initial analysis indicates that our Experience One scheduling will immediately require one more lab to meet our student requirements for computer access. This purchase will be paid out of existing funds in the Student Computer Fee Account.  The Computer Planning Committee with four voting members in attendance, including two students, voted unanimously to approve the expenditure.
