Revised Five Year Plan as of June 2013

UCR’s network is an important infrastructure supporting campus research, teaching, and administrative operations. Therefore, as part of the CIF implementation, C&C proposed a five year rate plan designed to fund required growth in UCR’s fiber infrastructure, pay for upgrades and replacement of network electronics, and expand important services as required (for example, the wireless network).

However, given the realities of the current campus budget environment, and in consultation with the Committee on Sales and Services Activities (COSSA) and others, C&C decided to request a rate increase of 5% (new rate $58.18/month/fte) per its five year plan.
