Was the Academic Program company accepted due to an appropriate *RFP process? If so, when was the information pertaining to the RFP released and who sat on the RFP committee? The state apparently forbids the hiring of a company that one does not go through a proper RFP process. If we did not go through an RFP how valid is his and what are the repercussions?
*RFP – Request For
1. Can a
department at UNF be moved from physical location to another without being
consulted? We ask because rumor has it that such plans are in the works which
would be very costly and adversely
effect a department on campus (and the plans have not been discussed at
all with the department, let alone them being consulted).
hearing the discussion at the November meeting about the incentive/signing
bonus for "minority" faculty members, I was quite bothered. Has the
administration had any discussions that move beyond a numbers perspective of
white vs. non-white faculty members? For example, it may be fruitful to
encourage some changes on campus that will get rid of the "token"
hire approach we heard about in the last meeting.
1b. Are we to take away from Tom Serwatka’s
statement at the November meeting
about being ashamed of UNF
because it is too white and that there is additional money to pay above market
for faculty of the
"right" color that color itself has a value that UNF is willing to pay?
One of the two signs/maps Directory Communications and Visual Arts is still up on Building 3. The Communication Department and the Art and Design Department have not been together in almost 10 years. Building facilities should revise the signage to be more current. Can we have the signage revised?
If I use a car for travel why can’t I be reimbursed for any amount below the amount it would cost for me to use my own car? I raise this question because I own a standard size car. I own that size car because I do not want to drive a subcompact or compact car. Hence, when I rent a car, I rent a standard-size or full-size car. The cost for my rental car and the cost for gas is always less than the cost that I would be reimbursed for using my own car. Sometimes the difference is over $100. Yet, I am just reimbursed for the cost of the rental car at the subcompact or compact car rate. Granted the amount of money involved is small, but it turns out I have to reimburse UNF for the difference. The reason for this is that in order for me to not be charged tax for the rental, I must use my Pcard. For one trip I owe $5. How much will it cost for my $5 check to be processed by UNF? Let’s be sure to include in that cost the time I will spend delivering the check to the cashier’s office and the time others will spend making sure it is credited to the right account. Put another way, can I rent a car and request to be reimbursed for mileage for my own car?
