New Faculty Technology Subsidy
Subsidy Policy overview
Beginning in the Summer of 2011, computer purchases for new faculty members are facilitated through CASIT. The CAS Dean’s Office authorizes some new TTF faculty members to purchase up to $2,500 in computer equipment. This is a 100% subsidy that applies to software, desktop, laptop or tablet computers, printers, scanners, external hard drives, and other peripherals.
If the business use of a requested item is not clear, the College may request further justification. These funds are not intended for the purchase of servers, systems infrastructure or computing clusters: see CASIT for assistance with such services. Office equipment such as chairs, desks and filing cabinets are not eligible. If the total cost exceeds the allocated funds, the overage will be charged to a departmental index.
Orders must be placed through CASIT to receive the subsidy. We cannot reimburse departments or faculty members for purchases processed outside CASIT. CASIT will order, set up, deliver, and process payments for the equipment.
The new faculty member or a designated department contact fills out form on this page. CAS Dean’s Office then confirms whether subsidy funds are available for new faculty member. If the designated department contact completes form, please include the faculty member name after your name. This confirmation starts the ordering process with the CASIT Buyer who will work with the new faculty member or the designated department contact on creating a New Faculty Order. CASIT will place the approved order with the appropriate vendor. When delivered the equipment will be set up and delivered by the CASIT Help Desk.
Timing of orders
It is preferable that all purchases be made at the same time. We understand that it may take some time to select equipment and software, but we ask that all purchases be made as quickly as possible. The unused portion of the subsidy can be saved for 12 months after the original technology request. However, please coordinate with CASIT to make sure this subsidy is used in a timely manner.
