couldn't be used on salaries anyway. Had to be used for technology and the some departments my team supports--Arts and Music, for example-- typically don't have huge endowments and subsidies from corporations. So they used it to buy tech that will help during remote/hybrid teaching but also still be useful when everyone's back and might even help retain/attract students.

So I'm not totally against this spending. It was offered, IT is administering the fund, and the money would be left on the table if the department heads didn't speak up and not be afraid to make big asks.

This infusion takes the strain off next year's State budget.
