April 2010 Archives

The CLA May/Summer Term Memo and Instructional Funding documents were emailed to Department Chairs, Administrators and Sr. Accountants last week.  There are minor updates to the Funding Guidelines Memo (Summer Term 2010 FundingGuidelines.doc).   

All of the Summer Term documents are available on the CLA Intranet (http://www.cla.umn.edu/intranet/fiscal/funding.php) for reference.

CLA Replacement Teaching Funding Guidelines

The CLA Replacement Teaching Guidelines document has been updated to include recent changes in sabbatical savings, and the principles and processes related to requests for temporary instructional needs (TINS).  The revised document is attached and can also be found on the CLA Fiscal Administration website under instructional funding (http://cla.umn.edu/intranet/fiscal/funding.php#ay). 

Please contact Pandora Aaron if you have any questions (aaron012@umn.edu).

CLA Newsletter Poll

CLA Media and PR is planning a new internal newsletter for all CLA faculty, staff, and grad students. A launch is anticipated for this summer, and contents will include college news, hires and retirements, awards, and other good news. The three primary goals of the newsletter are to:

  1. Build community; foster a culture of openness; celebrate success
  2. Tell reader where CLA is going and why, what the big picture is
  3. Provide information

As an early step, we are asking CLA NOW members to share their thoughts on the name of the newsletter. By taking our poll you can help Media and PR name the newsletter. Thanks for your participation.

The CLA Computer Replacement Program (CRP), a purchasing program organized by CLA-OIT, is designed to simplify the computer purchasing process for CLA departments and users. CLA provides computer funding for many different types of users to meet technology support and security guidelines. Computers expire in their fourth year, generally replaced at 3.5 years. All expiring PB (Printed Budget and TS (Teaching Staff) computers must be returned to CLA-OIT. Due to funding GS (Graduate Students) computers will not be replaced this fiscal year.

Computer configuration packages and program information can be found online. Feel free to contact your Regional Technician, who has also received this information, or the CLA-OIT Service Desk (624-4357) if you have questions about your inventory or the CRP process.
