The following table shows the money spent through ARCC allocations toward the implementation of the WSU Academic Computing and Information Technology Plan over the last 12 years.
In thousands of dollars.
|Year||Expenditures||ARCC Budget||Student Fees||Other|
*(2 years combined)
Base budget changes: A base of $200,000 was allocated in 1986. $60,000 was permanently allocated for student lab management. Institutional budget cuts have reduced the amount to the current $128,000
Irregular yearly expenditures: Initially, President's Council allowed the committee to borrow against future revenues, so the first year's expenditures greatly exceeded income. Actual costs tend to be lower than budgets, so ARCC has budget surpluses which are then allocated in subsequent years. Surpluses are variable. In 1989 the committee purposely put aside money for equipment replacement. This program was dropped the next year.
Other Income: outside money has come from institutional contingency allocations made by President's Council, matching funds provided through individual college budgets, Urgent Student Support funds, Higher Education Technology Initiative money in the last two years, and from other miscellaneous sources. In 2002-2003, ARCC became responsible as the guardians of the Dee Family Technology Awards - the funds falling under "other".
