Requests for Hardware and/or Software of $10,000 or more 

The Academic Computing Committee encourages those making requests for substantial resources ($10,000 or more) to seek grants or other sources of funding before applying to the Committee for hardware or software. While the Committee appreciates that this may not always be possible (or successful), it will rank justifications for requests in the context of the following hierarchy: 

  1. Requests to continue teaching and research activities initially funded by other grants (and when the activities have proven essential for ongoing teaching and research)
  2. Requests to initiate teaching and research activities for which faculty and/or staff have sought other funding. 
  3. Requests which will have an institutional impact on education and/or research. 
  4. Requests which will have a department or program impact. 
  5. Requests which will impact the teaching or research of one faculty member.
