Thank you for participating in our infrastructure competition. We had over 70 faculty involved in requests totaling nearly $750,000 towards new equipment or upgrades, and proposed additional matching funds in excess of $650,000 from faculty and/or Schools.
After evaluating the proposals, we are fully or partially funding 23 of the 29 submitted proposals. Funding for the successful proposals, slightly in excess of $525,000, is provided by the dean’s Research office and OKED. Because some of the equipment will be used to support teaching, some student program fees were also made available by the dean. Matching funds from faculty and Schools contribute another nearly $400,000 towards the equipment. Therefore, faculty, school directors, OKED and the dean’s office will proceed in purchasing nearly $900,000 in new equipment/upgrades this year. This is GREAT and significantly increases your access state-of-the-art facilities.
Below is a table summarizing the new equipment that was approved for purchase and faculty collaborators. This equipment is available for everyone to use and we encourage you to contact funded recipients. Because of our funding sources, we want the orders for the equipment to be placed by the end of May 2012. My office will be providing each of the School BOMs with account numbers, and questions regarding accounting from the Dean’s office should be directed to Sabrina.Carretie@asu.edu. Funds not encumbered by mid-June 2012 may not be available later for purchasing the equipment.
For proposals not selected, or not fully-funded, I will be providing you with feedback over the next week. I want to again thank everyone who participated. We may not have the opportunity to repeat this next year, but please keep a list in your mind of equipment that could be used jointly by multiple faculty.
