Draft Proposal for Tuesday 11/29 General Assembly: Medical

Posted by & filed under Assemblies, Past Proposals.

The Medic Working Group purchased a 16 x 16 and an 11 x 11 tent for its medical clinic space at Liberty Park. These tents were used to create a safe, dry, functional medical clinic in the park and they were essential to us providing high quality medical care. These were purchased on November 2nd and went up in the park soon after. The cost of the tents was   $450 + $882.50 = $1,332.50.

We had originally thought we would be able to cover the costs out of our daily budget, but finance has since told us that they would like a proposal approved by the wider community before they release these funds. So we are asking the General Assembly to approve the release of these fund to pay back the individual who purchased these tents.

We are asking for $1332.50 to be released to the Medic Working Group to cover the cost of two medical tents which were purchased on November 2nd.

    Please help clarify since the following statements are confusing :

    “The Medic Working Group purchased a 16 x 16 and an 11 x 11 tent..”
    then later state
    “..to pay back the individual who purchased these tents.”

    So it was money from one person and not a group of people, correct? And the tent was borrowed and not donated, correct?

    Thanks.

      I read the proposal as: medical team views medical tent as an operating expenditure, so they go purchase a tent expecting to be reimbursed directly by finance. but (according to the proposal) finance tells the medical teamto write a proposal to get an OK from the general assembly; apparently finance views the purchase as a capital expenditure.

      there is nothing in the proposal that suggests that one person purchased this tent and lent it to the working group as you say.
