Technology Fee Management Plan
The general computer technology fee approved by the Board of Education at the March 18, 2002 meeting created a new source of revenue for the college. This Technology Fee Management Plan replaces the Interim Technology Fee Management Plan dated May 2002. The plan is intended to provide general information about the technology fee, specific management guidelines and instructions for applying for funding.
FY03 was considered a transition year. The disbursement of tech fee revenues was managed under the Interim Technology Fee Management Plan.
Actual revenue from the technology fee totaled $ 657,681 for the period July 1 to December 30, 2002. The fund is assessed a 4.5%. Estimated total revenue for FY03 is $ 920,000.

The bad debt reserve percentage is fixed by the college, TACT re-evaluates the other percentages each year. PROCESS
