  • Problem: We have run out of RFID tags
  • Why: We have used up all of our remaining RFID tags
    • Solution 1: Authorize purchase of additional RFID tags
  • Problem: We require additional funding to finish the space build out.
  • Why: Due to the unforeseen issues with the bio lab floor we will need to use an epoxy to cover the floor. We are also in need of floor molding/trim to replace the rubber trim that was removed (and not reusable) during the staining process.
    • Solution 1: Authorize $500 in additional funding, this should cover the remainder of the build out.
