The committee will advise in acquisition decisions, purchase and support of technology equipment. Most functions of the Office & Technology committee are done on an as needed basis. Hence the committee does not meet on a regular basis except for the annual budget submission and accompanying computer review. It is the
responsibility of the user of the equipment to bring to the Office & Technology committee’s attention that something needs to be fixed, improved or included.
