Dear EC Members,
This is a 10 day email ballot to make a determination on the below motion to allocate additional funds for equipment purchase.
The ballot opens 8PM EDT 5May 2004 and closes 8PM EDT 15May 2004.
Motion: ---------- This email is sent from the 802 Executive Committee email reflector. This list is maintained by Listserv.
Whereas the 802 EC had approved $7,500 for acquisition of 44 Wireless Access Points (WAPs) at the closing EC meeting in Orlando; and
Whereas Cisco Systems has now generously agreed to provide 24 of those WAPs to IEEE 802 for a substantially discounted net value of $3500; and
Whereas that leaves us with the need to acquire 20 additional WAPs on the retail market at an estimated $700 each (total = $14K); and
Whereas we therefore need to allocate an additional $10K to complete the acquisition of the needed equipment in time for our Portland plenary session;
Therefore be it resolved that: the IEEE 802 Executive Committee approves expenditure of up to an additional $10K for Acquisition of Wireless Access Points for Plenary Meeting Network Support (total of $17,500 for the 44 WAPs).
Moved: Rigsbee Seconded: Heile
