Requesting Funds: The Director of Information Technology receives requests from the campus and devises an overall technology plan which is presented to the committee for review and advice.  Expenditures are also presented to further inform planning going forward.  The committee focuses advice on processes and strategies over specific projects or tactics.

The Computer Replacement Pool typically funds desktop computer equipment for faculty and staff with the goal of keeping equipment refreshed and updated in an appropriate cycle, such as 4 years.

Equipment such as network cabling, fiber cabling connecting buildings, copper cabling inside buildings, and network electronics, and core networked services such as servers supporting applications of the network, security systems, network management, and enterprise applications are more appropriate for consideration in the IT Infrastructure pool process.
