The Technology Fee funds projects proposed by students, staff and faculty through a competitive process each year. Everyone in the UF community with an idea that fits the guidelines is encouraged to research its viability with the IT units who would support the project, then submit a concept paper. In this two-part process, Concept Papers are reviewed by the Advisory Committee and a subset of submitters is invited to submit a full Project Proposal for review. The committee acts in an advisory capacity to the CIO, who makes the final decision on projects to be funded and implemented.
A Technology Fee was implemented for all UF students beginning Fall 2009, and is used to enhance instructional technology services and infrastructure for students and faculty at the University of Florida.
