* The ongoing Academic Software License funding source was set to $150,000 for FY11, but increases proportionally as the technology fee collections grow. Initial funding awards are based on estimates from previous year. Fiscal Year 2013 (FY13) runs from July 1, 2012 through June 30th, 2013

*FY2012 Support Allocations

In FY2012 it was determined that a position must be hired to support the implementation of Technology Fee Projects TF-12-20: Echo360 Lecture capture extension and TF-12-21: Connecting SPSU to the TCSG Video Network. A position has been created to support these projects. Continued funding for the position is dependent on the Technology Fee allocation process.nal Project #
