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 in previous years: campus network, computer upgrades in labs/library, and student printing.
This year the RBC has $113,680 to award and will fund student projects only. This amount has been divided per the student head-count and credit hours between our Klamath Falls and Portland-Metro campuses. 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.
The deadline for submitting proposals for student projects is January 18, 2018. The 2017-18. RBC Proposal forms for each campus are available under Resource Budget Proposal to the right. Awards will be announced February 12, 2018 with a purchasing deadline of June 1, 2018.
Many projects that the Resource Budget Commission awards require equipment purchases and building materials. Please note that all equipment and materials are property of Oregon Tech and are to remain on campus.
Submit printed or electronic proposal to the Student Affairs Office by the deadline.
2017-2018 Deadline: January 18, 2018
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 Procurement and Risk Officer in the Oregon Tech Purchasing and Contracting office to help aid in making purchases using resource funds that are required to follow the applicable procurement process based on the dollar amount.
