PURPOSE: To request funds from the MSA Contingency and Reserve Fund which are present because of rollover funds from FY07
WHEREAS, All MSA entities were very conservative in their financial expenditures in the last fiscal year, and
WHEREAS, MUTV is the University of Missouri’s student-run television, and
WHEREAS, MUTV has recently grown exponentially in staff size and overall capability as a result of accomplishing the following primary goals for overall improvement this year: equipment quality and maintenance, technology, staff training, production quality, staff enthusiasm and flexibility, and
WHEREAS, This increase in staff size means more students use already-existing equipment, which leads to more chances of damage and disrepair, and
WHEREAS, MUTV will need to continue replacing and purchasing new equipment in order to successfully transition into the New Student Center in 2011, and
WHEREAS, In order to accommodate for this increase in staff size, complete MUTV’s internal renovation, and transition smoothly into the New Student Center, the purchasing of new and improved equipment is crucial, and
WHEREAS, This C&R allocation would allow MUTV to purchase two new Apple MacPro computers ($3,938.00 each) and a new Canon XL2 camera ($4,000).
THEREFORE, Be it resolved by the Missouri Students Association Senate that $12,000 be allocated to the MUTV Supplies Budget to aid in their current internal equipment renovation.
