Resource Budget Commission

The Resource Budget Commission was established in 1997 to meet unique needs within the departments of Oregon Institute of Technology. This Commission desires to provide for the overlooked needs of this campus. Submitted proposals will be considered based on need, ease of implementation, availability of funds and completeness of necessary information.

Academic or Student Affairs departments only may submit a proposal to receive funds for equipment or projects. RBC has a cap of $20,000 per project. The Commission asks that all proposals include the signature of the Department Chair to ensure that the submitted proposal is consistent with the priorities of that department. In the event that multiple proposals are submitted from one department, the department chair will rank the proposals according to the department’s priorities.
