Item 1152.1 on page 2 of the procurement contract memo from Dr. Weast that accompanies the BOE meeting agenda for March 10, 2009 shows a future award of $25,000 to for an Instructional Management System (IMS).

Or has the BOE quietly decided to appropriate $25,000 for the IMS software license about five months after the money was actually spent?
