Summary

This page represents the current Equipment procurement priority of HacDC. Questions to contemplate when determining priority should be as follows:

  1. Will it serve the entire group? (i.e Tables, Chairs, Projector)
  2. Will it serve the most active projects?
  3. Is it necessary to facilitate a potential project or general group comfort?
  4. Can we afford it now? (i.e. Why save for a projector when we need chairs?)
  5. Can we get it donated?
  6. Should we set aside a fund to purchase it? (i.e. Coffee & Snacks fund)

Equipment

Equipment is purchased (or reimbursed) in the priority below when funds become available in the Equipment budget.

Once any piece of equipment is purchased a Wiki article about is proper care, use and storage should be created. If special training is required to use a particular tool, those authorized to use the tool should be added to the (protected) Wiki page.

With the exception of restricted funds (where we set aside money for a certain piece of major equipment) all funding in the tools budget shall be spent in the following order of priority

Parts & Inventory

Parts and Inventory are supplies that HacDC carries to facilitate its projects. Things like coffee and snacks for late-night electronics work, in addition to solder, electronics parts and whatever we can pull from the free parts bin fall under this category.

Eventually, we should have drinks, beverages, whatever food, certain parts and expendable materials that can be purchased on an as-needed basis. These should be paid for by the members and not have to be replenished, per se, by group funds.
