Policy discussion

  • Establish criteria for the committee and what the committee would like to see in the proposals
  • Discuss the idea of a base budget during this meeting, and the next meeting discuss another issue
  • Decide if there should be a base budget to fund all the entities that the committee allocates money to
  • Base budgets are for salaries and not for goods and services
  • If the committee gives a base budget, then they should write out a contract about their responsibilities and guidelines and the committee would look and see if they withhold their contract and then the committee would decide if they are still going to be funded
  • Come up with some guidelines about how the committee is going to fund supplemental requests and the priorities of the requests
  • Committee would like the entities coming in for supplemental requests to display who was involved, how many students were affected, how many students participated, the effectiveness of the event, how the money was used
  • Committee needs to make clear definition of what is considered an academic event or student activity, and if we can prove the reasons why the proposal looks to be academic then the committee will not fund it or decide if we will fund a certain amount of money only

For the good of the order

  • Jack Baker wants clarification from the committee about sending the S & A user group goals to all the entities that are funded
  • Committee wants the S & A user group goals sent out
