Board Proposal 030 - Establishment of Policy to purchase required software to utilize tools


Board Proposal 030
Sponsor: Nick Kwiatkowski
Status: Draft


The board shall authorize the purchase of software required to run/operate/maintain machine that is designated as “In Production,” up to $250. The area supervisor should determine what is required to use a tool in a production manner. If the cost of software is greater than $250, the purchase will need to be voted on by the board by a simple vote (not requiring a board proposal). Software that requires a contract or yearly maintenance that will exceed the $250 limit over a 3 year period will be subject to board approval.

Purchased software will be installed and licensed on machines owned and operated by LMN and not on member's individual machines.

The area supervisor will have autonomy to determine the best software for the job, which may or may not include Open-Source software.
