In keeping with the importance of research to the Faculty of Fine Arts, Fine Arts Computing Services has been mandated to provide assistance to researchers. Faculty members who will require computer support for a research project (laptop and desktop computer configuration and maintenance, website setup and administration, application development, etc.) are to work with Tim Hampton (director of Computing Services) to prepare a research computing plan. This plan will outline the resources and staff time that will be devoted to the project, divided into two elements:
1 - "In kind" support, i.e. what computing support the Faculty is providing at no charge as a contribution to the project
This plan will be a component of the proposal submitted to the Dean for approval and is separate from yearly operational computer funds. The "in kind" contribution proposed will be assessed in light of the priority the Faculty assigns to the research project.
Once the research project is approved and funded by granting agency, computing will begin providing the support outlined. Reimbursement for the funded support will be sought at roughly four month intervals. Computing will require a budget number before funded work begins. In-kind work can begin as soon as the request is approved.
FA Computing will only support research projects under these conditions.
