The Resource Budget Commission was established in 1997 to meet unique needs within departments of Oregon Institute of Technology. In fact, funds for three critical areas were funded through the Resource Budget: campus network, computer upgrades in labs/library, and student printing.
In previous years, the RBC received proposals for equipment from students and academic departments. This year the RBC has $80,000 to award and will fund student projects only. Student projects can be academic in nature, such as junior or senior projects, annual projects (e.g., SAE Formula or Baja cars), conference travel, or other student-initiated projects.
Proposals for student projects are due January 13, 2016. The 2015-16 RBC Proposal template is available under Form to the right. Each proposal request should be limited to $15,000 or less. Awards will be announced January 29, 2016 with a purchasing deadline of June 1, 2016.
Submit printed or electronic proposal to the Student Affairs Office by the deadline.
2015-2016 Deadline: January 13, 2016
A Commission meeting is held during Winter term to review submitted proposals. Following the Commission meeting, a letter of decision will be prepared and e-mailed to the author of each proposal. For those whose proposals are approved, instructions for purchasing will be provided.
A list of approved proposals will be provided to the Director of Purchasing/Contracts and the Purchasing Agent in the Oregon Tech Business Office to help aid in making purchases using resource funds that are required to follow the applicable procurement process based on the dollar amount.
