Whereas, Typically, local colleges retain ownership of equipment technically belonging to the federal government, state government, or other grant-awarding entities; and
Whereas, College budget processes require ample lead time for the purchase of replacement equipment if grant-purchased equipment is reclaimed;

Completed. This resolution was developed to address a unique situation with grant funding. However, DETAC and TTAC representatives will continue to monitor this issue.
