New Faculty Technology Subsidy
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 a $2500 subsidy to aid in the purchase a primary computer, plus any needed peripherals. This subsidy applies to desktops & laptops, software, external hard drives, and other peripherals. The CASIT Technology Shop is available to view CASIT approved computers and 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 the subsidy approval request 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. Once delivered the equipment will be set up and delivered by the CASIT Help Desk.
Timing of Orders
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 subsidy approval, not the placement of the New Faculty Order. The CASIT New Faculty Team will send out reminders to faculty members with remaining funds and the time remaining to utilize the subsidy.
If you have any questions please contact the CASIT Buyer, Tyrone Russ, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 541-346-6042.
