					     MINUTES OF THE WORKSHOP AND SPECIAL MEETING OF MAY 16, 2005

                BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF ST. PETERSBURG COLLEGE


The Board of Trustees of St. Petersburg College met on Monday, May 16, 2005 in the Clearwater
Campus Teaching Auditorium, 2465 Drew Street, Clearwater, Florida. The following Board
members were present: Chairman Kenneth P. Burke, Vice Chairman Cecil B. Keene, Mrs.
Evelyn M. Bilirakis, Mr. W. Richard Johnston and Dr. Susan D. Jones. Also present was Dr.
Carl M. Kuttler, Jr., President of St. Petersburg College and Secretary to the Board of Trustees.
Mr. Joseph H. Lang, Board Attorney, was not required to be present.


05-092.       Chairman Burke began by reviewing the past week of highlights in the life of the
College, including the Hall of Distinction, Spring Graduation, grand opening of the West St.
Petersburg Community Library, state championship for the baseball team, etc.


05-093.        The invocation was given by President Kuttler and was immediately followed by
the pledge of allegiance.


05-094.        Chairman Burke asked trustees to be thinking about leadership and scheduling
decisions to be made at the July annual organizational meeting.


05-095.         Prior to the meeting, a workshop was held at 7:30 a.m. on Governance. The
Board reviewed the amended wording of the resolution passed at its April 20 meeting. Dr. Jones
asked College Attorney David Henniger to monitor the current statewide lawsuit for the trustees.
Dr. Don Sullivan, Vice President of Economic Development and Innovative Projects, reported he
feels we need an advocate to act on behalf of the community colleges. Dr. Jones noted that the
Goodlette bill did pass, giving the Legislature authority to set tuition and decide other issues for
the university system; however, it does not include community colleges. President Kuttler
clarified current and proposed governance structures and how the community colleges with 4-
year offerings are affected. He recommended that some of the trustees, along with other key
leadership, speak to the Governor and his staff, carrying forth Dr. Sullivan’s suggestion to create
under the budget category of Other Educational Opportunities a separate category for program
funds called Access Education, to include 4-year program funding. Dr. Sullivan suggested the
next step needs to be including this suggestion in a discussion in Sarasota when the Council of
Presidents meets in June, and that Ann McGee, as the moderator should receive a preliminary
briefing. The Board staff assistant was asked to pass the dates of this June meeting on to the
trustees. President Kuttler recommended that, in addition to Dr. Sullivan’s suggestion, trustees
seek an appointment with the Governor while he is here and discuss (1) getting these 4-year
colleges out of ―never-never-land‖; (2) putting our 4-year program funding on the recommended
list, as a temporary fix and with the understanding of the State Board; and (3) consider the
     MINUTES OF THE WORKSHOP AND SPECIAL MEETING OF MAY 16, 2005

                BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF ST. PETERSBURG COLLEGE


suggestion of using Access Education, under the Other category, to get us out from under the 2-
year structure. Dr. Jones suggested a different approach since Florida is becoming a 3-tier state
in education. She said the state needs to figure out how to govern 4-year colleges that are not
universities, and think about the trend and what is good for the system.
         Mr. Burke suggested the Council of Presidents reinstate its sub-committee of the
community college presidents who offer 4-year degrees. Dr. Sullivan encouraged our Board to
be the leaders and carry this, and others would follow.
         The president agreed to work with Mr. Henniger to monitor the lawsuit, which is
expected to be expanded, and then, in time, reserve judgment but say we are willing to file an
amicus on an appeal, thereby putting us in a future posture to argue for leadership of those with
4-year offerings.
         The Board asked that the topic of Governance be a standing item on its future agendas to
accommodate a need for ongoing discussion. Trustees asked to hear more next month from Dr.
Tom Furlong, Sr. Vice President of Baccalaureate Programs and University Partnerships, and any
others who have interest. The Board further suggested possibly inviting Mr. David Armstrong of
the State’s Community College System to be part of future discussions. Mr. Burke asked Dr.
Sullivan to come up with a plan within the Board to look at goals the trustees have set up. Dr.
Jones agreed to set time to talk with Dr. Sullivan and bring back options to the other trustees.
         In addition, Mr. Burke expressed his disappointment once again in FACC’s lack of
communication with trustees regarding new leadership for the organization. Dr. Jones noted that
she has been asked to serve on a Futures Committee, set up to define a direction for FACC and
then seek out a new director. She agreed to relay to the Committee Mr. Burke’s displeasure with
the organization’s communication. She further asked the trustees to communicate, through the
Board clerk, their recommendations regarding FACC’s role and how it should be organized. Mr.
Burke asked that the Board clerk draft a letter, under his signature, to FACC’s administration
letting them know of our Board’s interest in this issue and that it is being included on the Board’s
next agenda for further discussion. Mr. Burke was asked to let other state Board chairs know of
our efforts in communicating this to FACC and encourage them to do same.


05-096.       Following the workshop, at approximately 8:10 a.m., the meeting was convened
by the chairman.


05-097.        In accordance with the Administrative Procedure Act, the following Agenda was

                     Bid Results-Collegewide Security Guard Services
                        Facilities Planning & Institutional Services

I. BACKGROUND:

A. SPC has supplemented its own security personnel with contracted security guard service since
1983. The current contract with Fox Protective Services, Inc. expires June 30, 2005, with no
renewal options remaining. The current contract resulted from a joint bid with Hillsborough
Community College (HCC) hosted by SPC in the spring of 2000. SPC and HCC again joined
forces this year to bid a new contract, working very closely in an endeavor to obtain maximum
quality and value from our combined volume of security guard service requirements.

B. On April 1, 2005, St. Petersburg College Request for Proposal #SPC-HCC 25-04-05 with
Hillsborough Community College was issued. A Pre-Proposal Conference held on April 12,
2005 was mandatory in order to participate in this procurement opportunity. All five security
guard contractors attended the Pre-Proposal Conference and were invited to submit Proposals.
Joint purchasing and security representatives of both SPC and HCC also attended.

C. The vendors were advised that the one submitting the successful proposal would be required
to enter into separate agreements with SPC and HCC based upon the specifications and the bill
rates of the successful contractor.

II. GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL:
    MINUTES OF THE WORKSHOP AND SPECIAL MEETING OF MAY 16, 2005

               BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF ST. PETERSBURG COLLEGE


A. All security personnel employed by the Agency to fulfill the respective Agreements shall wear
the Agency’s prescribed uniform at all times and perform in a manner that conforms with the
standards of good practice of the Private Security Service Industry, and specified by applicable
statutes, regulatory rules, and guidelines. Additionally, said security personnel minimally shall
have:

       (1) A high school diploma or the equivalent;

       (2) Not been convicted of a felony or had adjudication withheld in a felony;

       (3) A valid Florida Driver's License;

Item No. SPC-HCC 25-04-05                             1              Agenda Item IX-A. 1

Item No. SPC-HCC 25-04-05

       (4) Received certifiable security guard training in Basic Security Guard Training, Fire
       Prevention, Theft Protection, Vandalism Protection, and First Aid or successful
       completion of the HCC Security Guard Training Course,

       (5) Successfully completed at the Agency's cost a drug screening urinalysis with a
       negative result within one (1) week prior to assignment at any site, when the assignment
       will be for longer than two (2) weeks. A copy of each such report shall be provided by
       the Agency to the respective College immediately upon receipt; and

       (6) No physical weaknesses or abnormalities that would adversely affect the performance
       of assigned duties.

B. The Agency shall provide security personnel who have successfully undergone, at the
Agency's expense, a background investigation that shall include, but not be limited to:

       (1) A criminal records check, driving record check and credit record check;

       (2) Satisfactory personal and employment references;

       (3) Satisfactory history of at least the previous ten (10) years of prior employment;

       (4) History of at least the previous ten (10) years of prior residence; and

       (5) Determine a history of drug or alcohol abuse that may show a lack of reliability. The
       respective College's Office of College Security may waive this requirement temporarily in
     MINUTES OF THE WORKSHOP AND SPECIAL MEETING OF MAY 16, 2005

                BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF ST. PETERSBURG COLLEGE


       situations deemed to be an emergency, when time will not allow a background
       investigation to be completed prior to assignment. The results of this investigation will
       be immediately provided to the respective College’s Office of College Security for each
       assigned guard.

C. SPC will require approximately 983 hours per week of contracted security guard service and
that HCC will require approximately 920 hours per week. The vendors were advised, however,
that there is no guarantee of a minimum number of hours from either college and that the actual
number may be more or less than the estimates.

D. Each College may designate up to ten of the contracted security guards to serve as Sergeants.
During the initial contract year regular guards shall be paid a minimum of $9.50 per hour by the
Contractor. Guards designated as Sergeants will be paid $10.00 per hour by the Contractor.
Proposals stated the hourly bill rate for regular guards, the hourly bill rate for Sergeants and the
hourly bill rate for overtime pay for each category to be paid by each college for services.

Item No. SPC-HCC 25-04-05

E. A Contractor’s Qualification Statement containing answers to informational questions,
including whether the agency had ever failed to perform the material elements of a contract
awarded to it by another community college or governmental agency, was required to be
submitted with Proposals as well as the agency’s latest regular dated financial statement
containing current assets and current liabilities together with the name of the firm preparing the
financial statement. Proposals submitted without such information were automatically rejected.

F. Following the initial contract period from July 1, 2005 through June 30, 2006, the contract
may be renewed through the respective approval processes of SPC and HCC for four (4)
additional one-year periods (beginning 7-1-06-6-30-07; 7-1-07-6-30-08; 7-1-08-6-30-09 & 7-1-
09-6-30-2010), provided services have been satisfactory and any increases in bill rates do not
exceed the annual rate of inflation as determined by the U. S. Department of Labor, Bureau of
Labor Statistics’ Consumer Price Index on the last day of February in the year in which renewal
is eligible.

G. The RFP document and any addenda is the basis for any Agreement that may arise as the
result of this RFP. Moreover, it was clearly stated that, due to the unique nature of security
needs, this document cannot anticipate every eventuality nor can it anticipate advances in security
techniques, equipment technology, or changes in homeland security requirements. Therefore,
the right is reserved by St. Petersburg College and Hillsborough Community College respectively
with agreement by the Agency, during the initial term and any extension of any Agreement
     MINUTES OF THE WORKSHOP AND SPECIAL MEETING OF MAY 16, 2005

               BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF ST. PETERSBURG COLLEGE


resulting from this process, to make appropriate changes to any specification, term, condition or
requirement not specifically governing a material contractual term between the parties to such
Agreement. A material contractual term is defined as a change in the compensation rate(s) to the
Agency in a manner other than provided or as allowed in the respective Agreements on the date
of the initial execution by the parties. The Director of Purchasing of each college respectively
must approve all non-material changes under this provision.

 III. REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL IS SIGNIFICANTLY DIFFERENT FROM
                    AN INVITATION TO BID:

An Invitation to Bid is used when there is a desire to procure commodities or services that are
easily specified and for which a recommendation can be made impartially to award the bid to the
responsible vendor submitting the lowest bid meeting the bid specifications.

Conversely, a Request for Proposal is used when the commodity or service to be procured is not
defined with absolute specificity and where vendors having expertise in the subject field are
requested to propose the means for achieving the desired result. In the case of security guard
services for both colleges, an award recommendation is made for the responsible agency whose
Proposal is deemed to be in the overriding interests of both entities after comparative judgmental
evaluation of all factors, whether or not it is the Proposal lowest in cost.

*V. RECOMMENDATION:

The Proposal of Fox Protective Services, Inc., at the hourly bill rates of $13.19 for regular
guards, $13.89 for Sergeants, $19.79 regular overtime and $20.84 Sergeant overtime is
recommended for approval as the Proposal deemed to be in the best interests of both St.
Petersburg College and Hillsborough Community College by Dotson Hunt, Director of
Purchasing; Susan M. Reiter, Director of Facilities Planning & Institutional Services; Nyle
Bosier, Director of Facilities Services, and Janice Burke, Collegewide Security Supervisor,
     MINUTES OF THE WORKSHOP AND SPECIAL MEETING OF MAY 16, 2005

                BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF ST. PETERSBURG COLLEGE


District Office. Vonda Melchior, Director of Purchasing, and William O. Goolsby, Coordinator
of Safety & Security, Hillsborough Community College, concurs in the recommendation.

VI. JUSTIFICATION OF RECOMMENDATION:

The estimated weekly contracted security guard hours for St. Petersburg College translates to
approximately 49,000 hours annually, while the Hillsborough Community College estimated
weekly hours translates to approximately 46,000 hours annually. In order to fill the needs of both
SPC and HCC, it is necessary for the Security Guard Agency to have the financial capability and
business stability to consistently provide the required number of contracted security guards for
each institution on an annual basis.

In the analysis of the Proposals, careful attention was paid to the total document, particularly the
financial statements submitted by the respondents and information provided by references,
together with all information provided in the Contractor’s Qualification Statements submitted by
each, in order to determine which Agency is in a position to take on accounts of the size and
nature of those offered by St. Petersburg College and Hillsborough Community College.

Moreover, all Proposals were required to detail the vendor’s plan, capacity and resources for
providing additional security personnel that may be needed during critical emergencies such as
hurricanes and how such personnel would be allocated between SPC and HCC. The Fox
Protective Services Proposal stated that Fox is committed to giving SPC and HCC
―…preferential treatment in the event of an emergency event such as a hurricane. Because
we operate in 24 Florida Counties, we would, if necessary, bring personnel in from other
areas…to cover [these] security commitments.‖ Fox was the only vendor to commit in that
manner.

Fox Protective Services, Inc. is the incumbent Agency. During the five years of their service to
SPC and HCC, the Agency has expanded from Hillsborough County into twenty-three (23) other
Florida counties. In addition to SPC and HCC, Fox provides security guard services to Polk
Community College, St. Johns River Community College, Hillsborough County, Tampa Port
Authority, and the Hillsborough County Tax Collector.

The Fox gross receipts for 2004 exceeded $19,000,000. From contract start on July 1, 2000
through may 5, 2005, St. Petersburg College has invested $2,212,032.72 in the security guard
services provided by Fox Protective Services: (2000-2001 = $404,398.87; 2001-2002 =
     MINUTES OF THE WORKSHOP AND SPECIAL MEETING OF MAY 16, 2005

                BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF ST. PETERSBURG COLLEGE


$396,969.67; 2002-2003 = $461,762.95; 2003-2004 = $489,143.53; 2004-May 5, 2005 =
$459,757.90.)

Those in charge of Security at St. Petersburg College and Hillsborough Community College have
experienced nearly five (5) years of excellent service provided by Fox. The frequency of
turnover in guards assigned by the Agency is very low and the caliber of guards assigned is very
good.

Satisfaction with the Agency’s services is attributed to several factors, including the rate of pay,
initial training, and continuous training the guards receive. Moreover, the owner of the Agency,
Brian J. Fox takes personal actions to assure that the Agency’s contractual obligations to SPC
and HCC are totally met and that value is not short-changed in the dollars spent for services.
Comments of Others on Fox Protective Services, Inc.:

Tampa Port Authority-Peter Miller: ―We use 80 officers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365
days a year and Fox has never let us down. If additional guards are needed at any time Fox
supplies them. If a guard does not work out, Fox makes an immediate replacement. We are very
pleased!‖

St. Johns River Community College-Howard Curry: We are thrilled with them. They are
doing an exceptional job. There were a couple of personnel issues that were addressed timely
and appropriately. They have been on board since July 2004. They have a strong grasp of the
Community College system.‖

Hillsborough County-Scott Dunlap: ―We’ve had Fox for two years. They have been very
responsive. The firm is very well managed. They take care of their people so they don’t have a
high turnover rate. My department is their biggest customer (62,000 hours per year). The
unarmed Fox guards supplement the 78 armed County guards. They are placed at various
locations throughout the County. I would recommend them to anyone.‖

VII. THE OTHER PROPOSALS:

Securitas Security Services USA, Inc.: The Proposal of Securitas was automatically
rejected because they failed to provide an identifiable financial statement. The RFP
required that a statement of financial conditions, including a balance sheet containing current
assets (cash, joint venture accounts, accounts receivable, notes receivable, accrued interest on
notes, deposits, and prepaid expenses) and current liabilities (accounts payable, notes, provision
for income taxes, advances received from owners, accrued salaries and accrued payroll taxes)
other liabilities and capital (capital stock, authorized and outstanding shares par values, and
earned surplus).

               BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF ST. PETERSBURG COLLEGE

Item No. SPC-HCC 25-04-05

A one-page document labeled ―Consolidated Balance Sheet‖ was provided in the Securitas
Proposal. The page preceding that document states that it was prepared by Price Waterhouse
Coopers on 12/31/04. However, there is nothing on the page to identify it as applying to
Securitas or indicating who prepared it. Although it can be inferred that the document applies to
Securitas and that Price Waterhouse Coopers prepared it, without identifying information on the
document, it does not meet the requirement of the RFP. (Note: Requiring financial
information is vital in helping to determine whether a vendor appears to be financially
sound at the time a contract is awarded for services such as security guards, banking,
employee leasing, etc. When financial information is not provided as requested in a given
solicitation, the consistent position of SPC is to reject a Bid or Proposal that is non-
responsive to that requirement.)

Janus Security Services: The Proposal was very generic and vague regarding several specifics.
Commenting on the request to state what their plan, capacity and resources are for providing
additional security personnel that may be needed during critical emergencies such as hurricanes
and how such personnel would be allocated between SPC and HCC, the Janus Proposal stated:
―As part of our complete management approach for SPC or HCC…Janus will have in effect an
Emergency Response procedures Directory…[that] outlines the specific actions
which…[security] personnel undertake during various potential emergency situations. In
addition, Janus states that for ―…all emergency situations occurring outside of normal building
operating times, we will utilize the emergency phone list published in the Emergency Procedures
Directory to recall the appropriate management, supervision, and labor required by the nature of
the problem.‖

The Janus Proposal was vague in relation to the RFP requirement to describe the
communications methods and timeframes for communications between colleges and your staff as
well as between the contracted guards and your staff to include communications when orders for
guards are placed by SPC or HCC, when guards do not show up, when last minute requests are
made, and to resolve problems or other situations that require communication. The Proposal
describes a ―Communication Log Book: The log book is a daily diary of the facility. This book
is used by the security staff…Janus Management, and SPC or HCC. The documentation and
implementation of special service requests during Post hours are managed through the utilization
of the log book. Each request is addressed in the log book on a nightly basis with the appropriate
staff.‖ While reality may be otherwise, this statement indicates that matters arising during the
day are looked at and decided at night. The response did not clearly describe how Janus will
handle daily matters, some of which may be urgent, in a timely manner.

Item No. SPC-HCC 25-04-05

The Janus Proposal included a Financial Statement as required, although it was marked
―Confidential.‖ (Because of the provisions of Chapter 119, Florida Statutes, relating to Public
records, the SPC cannot honor the request for confidentiality in the event of a Public Records
Request.) A review of the financial information provided indicates that the Agency had losses in
the last two years, which is of some concern. It is noted, however, that Janus Security Services
has been in the business of providing security guard service since 1974. Comments of Others
on Janus Security Services:

City of Tampa-Lorraine Namey: ―We are not pleased with Janus; very disappointed.
Janus is not dependable; they are up and down, some days are fine and it is down hill on other
days with guards not showing up and calls not being returned.‖ The spokesperson indicated that
action is being contemplated to cancel the contract with Janus.

Manatee County-Dave Thompson: ―You are asking for a reference for Janus Security? (Pause)
―They are o. k. (Long Pause) I really don’t want to say anything more.‖

Glenborough Realty Trust: A message indicated that the telephone was no longer in service.

GE/ITI-Ray Penkalaski: Did not return telephone calls.

Georgia Pacific-Ron Wagner: Did not return telephone calls.

I. BACKGROUND:
     MINUTES OF THE WORKSHOP AND SPECIAL MEETING OF MAY 16, 2005

               BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF ST. PETERSBURG COLLEGE


On December 10, 2004, an Invitation to Bid for the purchase of one new MCI D4000 Model
Year 2005 Motor Coach, or the equivalent, was sent to Motor Coach Industries (MCI), Blue Bird
Coach Works and Prevost Car, Inc.

Bids were received from MCI and Blue Bird Coach Works on January 5, 2005. Prevost Car, Inc.
returned a Statement of No Bid because they said there was not enough time to prepare a bid.
The bid of Blue Bird Coach Works was for $300,585.00. The MCI bid was for $368,374.00.

After careful analysis of both bids the statutorily required posting of a Notice of a
recommendation for an Intended Decision for Bid Award was posted on the St. Petersburg
College Purchasing website on January 12, 2005 which stated that the recommendation was for
MCI as the low bid meeting specifications. It further stated that the Blue Bird Coach Works bid
did not meet specifications: A Caterpillar engine was substituted for the Detroit Diesel engine
(which Blue Bird could have provided at additional cost); a roof-mount Thermo King air
conditioner system was substituted for a Carrier non-roof mount system; the engine was not
cradle mounted (which affects ease of engine removal for repair or later rebuild); it is 3 tons
heavier than specified (which affects fuel mileage); an extra entrance step is provided instead of
the specified 3 steps (which has often proved to be a tripping hazard).

On January 14, 2005 Blue Bird Coach Works faxed a letter of protest in connection with the
posted Recommendation stating that as the bid with the lowest price they should be awarded the
bid. Section 120. 57 (3), Florida Statutes provides that an entity receiving a protest may attempt
to resolve the protest through mutual agreement between the parties.

An attempt was made to resolve the protest by having Blue Bird withdraw the protest on the
basis that they had not properly followed the protest procedure and they could have provided
several of the requirements but chose not to because it would have increased their bid price.
Blue Bird refused to withdraw the protest.

After a series of meetings with SPC staff involved in the decision recommendation process, it
was decided that the Director of Purchasing should reject all bids with the notice that
specifications would be revised to be as generic as possible for a re-bid and that a consultant be
retained to help with the specifications.

Item No. SPC 23-04-05

The Notice of Rejection of Bids was posted on February 2, 2005. On February 4th a faxed letter
was received from Blue Bird Coach Works protesting the rejection of bids. On February 15th the
Director of Purchasing discussed the latest protest with Mr. Chris Payne, Bid & Contracts
     MINUTES OF THE WORKSHOP AND SPECIAL MEETING OF MAY 16, 2005

                BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF ST. PETERSBURG COLLEGE


Administrator for Blue Bird. Mr. Payne agreed to withdraw the protest with the assurance that
there would be a re-bid. The Re-bid with generic specifications was issued on April 8, 2005 to
the three original bidders.
II. TABULATION OF BIDS RESPONDING TO THE RE-BID:
The Re-bid was in two parts, a Primary Bid for the purchase of one (1) latest model motor coach
and a Secondary, Optional Bid for two (2) same specifications, latest model motor coaches.

1. Motor Coach Industries:
a) Primary Bid for one D4005 MCI Motor Coach-                       $348,319.00*
Optional Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning Feature-           $ 4,928.00*
                             Total with Option                      $353,247.00*
       The option allows individual control of air conditioning
       Overhead similar to that found on commercial airplanes.)

b) Optional Secondary Bid for two D4005 MCI Motor Coaches-$696,638.00
       (Optional Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning Feature on both = $9,856.00.)

2. Prevost Car, Inc.:
a) No Bid. The reason given: ―Upon detailed scrutiny, we have found subject specifications to
be manufacturer specific. We are unable to alter our manufacturing processes to accommodate
the vehicle requirements as described in this bid.‖ William J. Leonard, Regional Sales Manger.

b) Rebuttal: A consultant with expertise in writing specifications for the type of vehicle desired
by the College was retained. The subsequent specifications mentioned no manufacturer or brand
names. The specifications where possible were written with ranges. Examples: ―Ground
clearance: >10 inches, gross vehicle weight: >52,100 pounds; payload capacity: >16,500 pounds.
The ranges accommodated all three manufacturers.

Moreover, the bid document provided information regarding the statutory right to protest
specifications within 72 hours after receipt of the bid. None of the three availed themselves of
that opportunity. College staff believes that the re-bid specifications were fair. The process also
was reviewed by the College Attorney before the bid was issued.

In the original bid, Prevost Car, Inc. did not respond, stating that there was not enough time
allowed to prepare the bid. The Re-bid initially allowed a month before bids were due, providing
ample time for everyone. The due date was extended twice, allowing an additional 10 days.
Further contact with Prevost indicates that the real problem was not the specifications but the
Regional Manager’s lack of manpower to deal with bids and his normal work, although he will
not put that in writing.

3. Blue Bird Coach Works:

No response. Blue Bird, after withdrawing their protest of the previous bid stated that they were
―…looking forward to a revised specification. We would like to have about one month to
adequately prepare any submittal to SPC.‖

*III. RECOMMENDATION:

Willie Felton, Vice President for Educational & Student Services, Lee Radcliff, Supervisor
of Fleet Services, Records, & Property Management, and Dotson Hunt, Director of
Purchasing, recommend approval of the Primary Bid of Motor Coach Industries for one
2006 MCI D4005 Motor Coach with the Optional HVAC individual controls in the total
amount of $353,247.00. Authorization is requested to enter into an appropriate Purchase
Agreement with Motor Coach Industries and to issue a companion Purchase Order.
Funding is through the Student Activities Budget.

This will replace the older of the two College buses, a 1977 MCI Motor Coach.

SUBJECT: Thomas H. Gregory/Gregory, Sharer & Stuart, PA—
         Consultant/Internal Auditing Services

Authorization is sought to continue and extend the agreement with Thomas H.
Gregory, shareholder of Gregory, Sharer & Stuart, to serve as consultant/internal
auditor and provide certain accounting services. The College may also use the
services of Gregory, Sharer & Stuart, from time-to-time, for advice regarding
prospective donors to the College and/or the Foundation. The agreement will be
for a three-year period commencing July 1, 2005 and continuing through June 30,
2008.

Gregory, Sharer & Stuart’s fee schedule for services provided during the contract
period will be as follows:

               Staff Classification                      Hourly Rate

                   Shareholder/Manager                   $150—$200

                   Staff                                 $ 75

meets the intent of State Board of Education Rule 6A-14.0734.

SUBJECT:         U. S. Department of Defense, Technical Support Working Group—Increase in
                 Overall Funding, New Task Order #7, and Amendments to Task Orders #3 & #6

Background: On January 16, 2001 St. Petersburg College entered into an agreement with the
Technical Support Working Group (TSWG) to issue individual Statements of Work over a five-
year period, up to a possible $10 million ceiling. To date, the National Terrorism Preparedness
Institute has worked or continues to work on six task orders:

        Task Order #1—$3,185,304—Completed
        Task Order #2—$1,036,201—Completed
        Task Order #3—$ 340,362
        Task Order #4—$ 49,994—Completed
        Task Order #5—$2,242,040
        Task Order #6—$2,975,000

NTPI has previously, and will in the future, develop training support products that support the
fielding of Combating Terrorism Technology Support Office (CTTSO). Products are developed
under the auspices of the TSWG. CTTSO conducts research and development and rapid
prototyping of technologies and capabilities that address near term operational needs of federal
interagency users.

This memorandum is for approval or clarification of the following:

       Task Order #3 involves training support for Sandia Laboratories in developing training
        products concerning Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA). Sandia
        Laboratories has been delayed in providing necessary Government Furnished
        Information, which necessitates a no-cost extension of the contract. It is anticipated the
        contract can be completed by December 2005. Approval is sought for the no-cost
        extension of Task Order #3.

Agenda Item IX-B.4
Meeting: May 16, 2005

       Task Order #6 involves providing various deliverables associated with the Department of
        the Army’s Improvised Explosive Devices. Task Order #6 was approved at the April 22,
        2005 Board meeting for an amount of $2,975,000. This item is to advise the Board that
       MINUTES OF THE WORKSHOP AND SPECIAL MEETING OF MAY 16, 2005

                BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF ST. PETERSBURG COLLEGE


        the actual contract amount was decreased to $2,735,100. All other terms and conditions
        will remain as previously advised.

       TSWG has requested that SPC/NTPI assist in developing training products supporting
        Explosive Breaching Capabilities. The estimated funding for this new Task Order #7 is
        expected to be between $300,000—$500,000. SPC/NTPI would develop an ―Explosive
        Breaching Characteristics‖ guidebook/flipbook and possibly a training support package.
        The period of performance is expected to be from June 2005 through December 2005.
        Approval is sought to respond to TSWG’s Request for Proposal to provide the foregoing
        deliverables.

       In addition to adding Task Order #7 as noted above, SPC/NTPI expects a contract for $2
        million later in the year (Task Order #8). In order to fund both Task Orders 7 and 8, the
        U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) will need to increase the ceiling of the shell
        agreement from $10 million to a total of $15 million. Approval is sought to accept
        increased funding from the U.S. Department of Defense for these TSWG contract
        opportunities. Some of the funding available is a result of the DOD’s transfer of Training
        and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) funding to TSWG.

SUBJECT: Renewal of College’s Stop Loss Policy


Confirmation is sought to renew the college’s stop loss policy for our self-funded
health plan effective July 1, 2005 and to enter into an appropriate contract, if

The Florida Community College Risk Management Consortium procured the
policy with SAFECO Insurance Company on the college’s behalf in conjunction
with the contract for the statewide self-insured community college health plan.

The Safeco aggregate and specific stop loss premium is $253,488.00 which
represents an increase of 18.9% from the previous year, and will be paid to the
consortium.

6Hx23-4.15     ACADEMIC AVERAGE AND REPEATED COURSES

               PURPOSE AND INTENT:

               To provide for a student's grade point average that will include grades
               on all college level work attempted. If a course is repeated more than
               once, only the grade on the last attempt will be used in computing the
               average.

               I.   Effective with college level courses taken beginning in Session I,
                    1997-98, a student may not repeat a course for which a grade of
                    "C" or higher has been earned. Exceptions may be granted only by
                    appeal to the campus academic appeals committee. A college
                    level course may be attempted without penalty only two times. At
                    the third attempt, the student will be assessed fees at the full cost
                    of instruction. A student enrolled in the same college-level course
                    more than twice will be assessed fees at 100 percent of the full
                    cost of instruction equal to the rate charged non-Florida residents.
                    Students may have their fees reduced once for each class due to
                    extenuating circumstances as determined by the campus provost
                    or associate provost or designee. However, the provost, associate
                    provost or designee shall have the authority to review and reduce
                    payment for increased fees due to continued enrollment in a class
                    on an individual basis contingent upon the student’s financial
                    hardship, pursuant to definitions and fee levels established by the
                    State Board of Education. An attempt shall be defined as each
                    enrollment in a college/college preparatory course past the
                    drop/add period regardless of the grade received. A fourth attempt
                    may be allowed only through an academic appeals process based
                    on major extenuating circumstances as defined below. In addition,
                    at the third or any subsequent attempt, the student may not receive
                    a grade of "I", "W", or "X", but must receive the letter grade earned.
                    When a course is repeated or when credit cannot be received in
                    both of two courses, credit will be allowed only in the more recent
                    course taken, even if the later grade is lower than a previous grade.

       BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF ST. PETERSBURG COLLEGE


              Except where provided in the course description, multiple credit will
              not be granted for the same course.

              Extenuating circumstances are those circumstances determined by
              the College to be exceptional and beyond the control of the
              student, are accompanied by appropriate documentation and which
              may include but not be limited to one or more of the following:

              A.     serious illness;
              B.     documented medical condition preventing completion;
              C.     death of an immediate family member;
              D.     involuntary call to active military duty;
              E.     documented learning disability;
              F.     English as a second language background;
              G.     documented change in conditions of employment; or,
              H.     other emergency circumstances or extraordinary situations
                     such as natural disasters.

              The criteria for determining financial hardship shall include, but not
              be limited to, qualification for federal need-based financial
              assistance. Students with other documented financial hardships
              may also be considered. In either case, the exception for financial
              hardship should be granted only after the student has
              demonstrated reasonable effort to succeed in the course.

       II.    Credit for previous attempts will not be taken away until the course
              has been repeated the maximum number of times allowable for
              credit.

       III.   After the maximum has been reached, the loss of credit for earlier
              attempts will be applied first to the attempt with the lowest grade,
              then successively to the next highest grade, etc.

              The symbols to be used for designating grades are standardized
              for all Florida community colleges in Appendix II (Common
              Transcript Standard Form) to the articulation agreement between
              the state universities and the public community colleges of Florida.
              The appendix also specifies a 4-point grading system for
              determination of grade point averages.
MINUTES OF THE WORKSHOP AND SPECIAL MEETING OF MAY 16, 2005

       BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF ST. PETERSBURG COLLEGE


           Section 2C of the articulation agreement provides that only the final
           grade received in courses repeated by the student shall be used in
           computing the grade point average.

           The college uses the following letter grades (and grade points):

                      Grades used in               Grades not used in
                    G.P.A. computation:            G.P.A. computation:

           A        4 grade points   Excellent     W       Withdrawal
           B        3 grade points   Good          S       Satisfactory
                                                           (Non-Credit)
           C        2 grade points   Average       X       Audit
           D        1 grade point    Poor          I       Incomplete
           F        0 grade points   Failure       N       No Credit
                                                           (College Prep)
                                                   NG      No Grade Reported
                                                   NC      Non credit
                                                   P       Passing (College Level)

           Grades are submitted by instructors electronically using a secure,
           password protected grade roster.           , using the letter grade
           designations, on a mark-sense form distributed by the campus
           coordinator of admissions/registration. The mark-sense form is an
           input into the on-line permanent record file.

           The computer program records the grade, assigns the grade points
           associated with the letter grade, and records the grade points
           earned for the course. The program then summarizes the course
           totals for the session:

               I.       Hours earned: Actual hours earned (whether grade
                        points are assigned or not; e.g., "S" grades).

               II.      Hours attempted for G.P.A.: Includes all courses in which
                        the assigned grade has a grade point value of 0-4.

               III.     Total grade points.

               IV.      Grade point average: The G.P.A. is the ratio obtained by
                        dividing item III. by item II.
    MINUTES OF THE WORKSHOP AND SPECIAL MEETING OF MAY 16, 2005

               BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF ST. PETERSBURG COLLEGE



                      The program then searches the permanent record file to determine
                      if any of the courses in the current session appear previously on
                      the permanent record file. When such a course is present, the
                      previous hours earned, hours attempted, and the grade points are
                      excluded from the summary and the last (latest) attempt is
                      designated by an "R" (repeat), even if the grade in the last attempt
                      is lower (earning fewer grade points).

                      To determine repeated courses, the data systems programs will
                      check transfer work as well as previous college work on the
                      permanent record file.

                      The on-line permanent record file represents an accumulation
                      dating back only to Session I, 1969-70. When a student's record
                      includes work which has not been accumulated on the file, the
                      college registrar adds "pre 69" data to the on-line permanent
                      record.

6Hx23-4.451    COLLEGE-PREPARATORY INSTRUCTION

               I.     Competency-based preparatory instruction is required for degree
                      seeking students who score below the St. Petersburg College
                      Placement Test cut-off scores prescribed by Rule 6A-10.0315,
                      F.A.C., and College Procedure P6Hx23-4.45.           Deficiencies
                      identified by the St. Petersburg College Placement Test will be in
MINUTES OF THE WORKSHOP AND SPECIAL MEETING OF MAY 16, 2005

       BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF ST. PETERSBURG COLLEGE


              one or more of three skill areas-reading, writing, and mathematics.
              Students scoring below the prescribed St. Petersburg College
              Placement Test cut-off scores in any of these three areas must
              begin competency-based preparatory instruction in those area(s) of
              deficiency within their first 12 credit hours of enrollment. Florida
              Statutes 240.321 provides alternate private provider's instruction.

        II.   Students with identified deficiencies will be precluded from enrolling
              in other credit courses within the skill area(s) of deficiency until
              basic skill mastery equivalent to the St. Petersburg College
              Placement Test score cut-off for such area(s) has been
              demonstrated. Concurrent enrollment in credit courses outside the
              area(s) of deficiency is permissible, however, in accordance with
              established prerequisite requirements and Section V. below.

       III.   Students who have begun required competency-based preparatory
              instruction must take identified preparatory courses consecutively
              in their identified deficient skill area(s) during each session they
              enroll at the College, insofar as possible in conjunction with Section
              I. above, until such area(s) of deficiency is/are resolved within the
              limitations prescribed by Section IV. below.

       IV.    Enrollment in competency-based preparatory credit instruction to
              remediate deficiencies in the skill area(s) identified may not extend
              beyond three attempts in each required course in each skill area.
              A fourth attempt may be allowed only through an academic appeals
              process based on major extenuating circumstances. Beginning
              Session I, 1997-98, students enrolled in the same college
              preparatory class within a skill area more than one time twice will
              be assessed fees at 100 percent of the full cost of instruction equal
              to the rate charged non-Florida residents. Students may have their
              fees reduced once for each class due to extenuating circumstances
              as determined by the campus provost or associate provost or
              designee. However, the provost, associate provost or designee
              shall have the authority to review and reduce payment for
              increased fees due to continued enrollment in a college preparatory
              class on an individual basis contingent upon the student's financial
              hardship, pursuant to definitions and fee levels established by the
              State Board of Education. An attempt shall be defined as each
              enrollment in a College/college preparatory course past the
              drop/add period regardless of the grade received.

                             such as natural disasters.

                    The criteria for determining financial hardship shall include, but not
                    be limited to, qualification for federal need-based financial
                    assistance. Students with other documented financial hardships
                    may also be considered. In either case, the exception for financial
                    hardship should be granted only after the student has
                    demonstrated reasonable effort to succeed in the course.

               V.   Students who have failed to remediate deficiencies in any course in
                    any of the identified skill area(s) within three attempts will be
                    permitted to enroll in additional credit coursework, but must be
                    concurrently enrolled in the area(s) of deficiency every session until
                    basic skill mastery equivalent to the St. Petersburg College
                    Placement Test score cut-off for such area(s) has been

              A.   When a student is alleged to have violated the Academic
                   Honesty GuidelinesPolicies, the faculty member involved
                   should meet with the student and attempt to determine if a
                   disciplinary proceeding is warranted. The faculty member can
                   request that the department chair or other appropriate College
                   official attend this meeting as a witness. The faculty member
                   may impose the sanction of requiring an appropriate
                   educational assignment and/or a Reduced or Failing Grade on
                   the test, assignment or for the course and in the instructors

       BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF ST. PETERSBURG COLLEGE


                discretion, the student may be required to fulfill an appropriate
                educational assignment if:

                1.   The faculty member believes the violation would be a
                     first offense and no circumstances require the imposition
                     of a sanction other than Reduced or Failing Grade and a
                     discretionary Educational assignment and

                     The violation is the first offense and the faculty member
                     believes there are no circumstances that require the
                     imposition of a sanction other than a discretionary
                     education assignment and/or a Reduced or Failing Grade
                     and;

                2.   The student and faculty member reach a written
                     agreement as to the sanctions. No further action is
                     required other than the faculty member forwarding a copy
                     of the written agreement to the associate provost.

           B.   The student shall not be permitted to drop the class once
                informed of a suspected academic honesty violation. Any
                class that is dropped in violation of this restriction shall be
                reinstated until the charges are resolved.

           C.   The student’s agreement to a sanction shall constitute a
                waiver of all other available adjudicatory procedures or
                appeals.

           D.   The faculty member shall forward a copy of the agreement
                with the student or the imposed sanction(s) given by the
                instructor to the assistant associate provost. If the student
                does not agree that a violation of the Academic Honesty
                Policy has occurred or that the imposed sanction(s) are
                appropriate, the student may within 7 days of the imposed
                sanctions, have the matter reviewed as a grievance by filing a
                petition pursuant to BOT Rule 6Hx23-4.36(F) alleging arbitrary
                and capricious actions of the faculty member and stating the
                reasons or grounds thereof. If the student fails to file a
                petition within the time set forth above, the sanction(s) shall
                become final and shall constitute a waiver of all other
                adjudicatory procedures or appeals.

               BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF ST. PETERSBURG COLLEGE



               IV.    The faculty member involved may refer the student to the assistant
                      associate provost rather than take action, if the instructor believes
                      disciplinary action may be warranted, and it appears that:

                      A.    The violation would not be the first offense; or
                      B.    In the judgment of the faculty member, a sanction such as
                            Probation, Suspension or Dismissal, or expulsion would be
                            warranted. ; or
                      C.    The student does not agree to the sanction proposed by the
                            faculty member involved.

                      The associate provost shall then review and handle the matter in
                      accordance with BOT Rule 6Hx23-4.35.

               V.     A student who is charged with an academic honesty violation by a
                      faculty member and who does not agree to accept the faculty
                      member’s sanction or for whom the faculty adjudication process is
                      not appropriate, as stated above, or when the student denies the
                      violation, the student shall meet with the assistant associate
                      provost to be advised of the hearing procedures and the student’s
                      rights and possible sanctions.

               VI.    The assistant associate provost may assist the faculty member and
                      student in reaching an acceptable agreement.

               VI.    If no agreement is reached or is not appropriate as stated above,
                      the assistant provost shall proceed to handle the alleged violation
                      as a disciplinary matter pursuant to DBT Rule 6Hx23-4.35. The
                      disciplinary board may impose such sanction as is appropriate for
                      the circumstances which may include probation, suspension or
                      dismissal.

6Hx23-4.53 HEALTH RELATED PROGRAMS - SPECIAL RULES

        INTENT AND PURPOSE:

        This Health Related Program Rule is applicable to all Health Related
        Programs including Allied Health, Nursing, Veterinary Technology, and
        Funeral Services Programs.

           I. Progression Requirements for all Health Related Programs:

              A. Students must be admitted to SPC and in good academic
                 standing prior to enrolling in the first specialty course. Students
                 must submit a Health Programs Application form to be
                 considered for enrollment.

              B. Students must be able to perform the essential functions and
                 occupational requirements of the particular health related
                 program. Students with disabilities must be able to perform the
                 essential functions and occupational requirements with or
                 without reasonable accommodations of the particular health
                 related program. Before starting the first specialty course,
                 students must pass the bona fide occupational requirements of
                 the particular health related program. Students who are eligible
                 to start the first specialty course in the program must submit a
                 Health Programs Application form to be enrolled in that course.

              C. Preference may be given to Pinellas County residents for filling
                 specialty courses. A resident must be a "resident for tuition
                 purposes" as defined in Florida Statutes (hereinafter referred to
                 as F.S.) 240.1201 and must have been a resident of Pinellas
                 County for at least 12 months immediately prior to the student's
                 application to the program. Slots will be available to non-
                 residents; however, residents of the College's service area for
                 each program may be given preference over non-residents for
                 these slots.

              D. Should the number of eligible students exceed the positions
                 available, Until January 1, 2006, students meeting the
                 progression requirements will be considered on a first-come,
MINUTES OF THE WORKSHOP AND SPECIAL MEETING OF MAY 16, 2005

       BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF ST. PETERSBURG COLLEGE


              first-served basis. To the extent continued funding for health
              related programs permits, students enrolled for the year in which
              they are eligible may be considered an alternate for that year
              and will be given preference for entry to the next available class.

              After January 1, 2006, for programs where the number of eligible
              students exceeds the positions available, students will be
              admitted on a point system based on program GPA (pre-entry
              requirements, general education, and support courses) and total
              program credits earned.           Minimum program GPA for
              consideration is 2.75 except Dental Hygiene, which is 3.0.
              Service area residents will be given first priority. Should there be
              positions available after exhausting service area residents, the
              remaining applications will be considered based on the point
              system. Those students who are not admitted may resubmit
              their application in subsequent enrollment periods. The deadline
              for application will be May 15 for fall enrollment, Aug 15 for
              spring enrollment, and January 15 for summer enrollment.
              Determination of admission status will be made after May 15,
              August 15, and January 15 of each year. Ties will be decided by
              a random drawing. (Currently, the GPA and point system
              standards would apply to Nursing, Dental Hygiene and
              Radiology.) Other programs, which have eligible students that
              exceed available positions, shall then also be subject to the
              minimum GPA and point system set forth above. Eligible
              students will be considered for health programs where
              applications do not exceed available positions on a continuous
              first-come, first-served basis.

          E. Preference will be given for up to fifteen (15) percent of the
             available positions, for students progressing on a program GPA
             basis. Once the first-come, first-served positions are filled,
             students whose program GPA is 3.7 or higher will be considered
             for progression on a program GPA basis. Program GPA is
             determined by the cumulative GPA of only those courses
             required for degree completion. After final course grades have
             been posted for the semester, prior to progression into their first
             specialty course, these students will be ranked according to their
             program GPAs and positions filled accordingly, beginning with
             the highest GPA. If more than one student has the same
             program GPA, those students’ positions will be awarded on a
MINUTES OF THE WORKSHOP AND SPECIAL MEETING OF MAY 16, 2005

       BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF ST. PETERSBURG COLLEGE


              first-come, first-served basis. Should there not be enough
              students progressing on a program GPA basis to fill these
              positions, students from the list of alternates, as set forth in I.,D.
              above, will be chosen to progress.

       F.E.   For progression into the first specialty course, students with a
              felony conviction must first have had their civil rights restored.
              Once civil rights have been restored, the Florida Board of
              Nursing ―Conviction Record Guidelines for Applicants‖ that were
              approved by the Board of Nursing on 15 August 2002 are used
              to determine whether students with felony backgrounds
              convictions can progress into the major course of study. Only
              students who would be placed into the ―Staff May Clear‖
              category as a ―yes‖ will be allowed to progress. All other
              students with any felony conviction listed on the ―Guidelines‖ will
              not be allowed to progress into the first specialty course. For
              purposes of using the guidelines, violations of county ordinances
              will be considered the same as violations of municipal
              ordinances.

       G.F.   While enrolled in a SPC health related program, the health care
              professions are committed to providing excellent patient care
              and services in a safe, productive, and quality-conscious
              environment. Prior to progression, prospective students will be
              tested and must pass a drug screening. If the program
              enrollment occurs 90 days or longer after starting the first
              specialty course, prospective students will be re-tested and must
              pass a second drug screening. The drug screening(s) must
              satisfactorily demonstrate that he/she is free from the use of any
              illegal drug, unprescribed controlled substance described or
              named in the law hereinafter referred to as "drug-free". Students
              must remain drug-free throughout the tenure in their program at
              the College.*** Failure to do so shall be grounds for dismissal
              from the program.***

              All students enrolled in a health related program are required to
              be drug and/or alcohol free when reporting to school and while at
              "affiliating agencies" (including parking lots and grounds). For all
              "affiliating agencies" which require students to be subject to the
              agency's Drug Testing policies, including but not limited to, when
              there is reasonable suspicion to believe a student may be
MINUTES OF THE WORKSHOP AND SPECIAL MEETING OF MAY 16, 2005

       BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF ST. PETERSBURG COLLEGE


              impaired, or is using or has used illegal drugs and/or alcohol, the
              student may be tested in accordance with the "affiliating
              agency's" policies. Prior to being assigned to an affiliating
              agency, the student shall sign a consent to allow the affiliating
              agency to release any drug testing results to the College. If
              tested by an "affiliating agency" the student shall provide his/her
              program director with a copy of any test results. Failure to
              promptly do so shall be grounds for dismissal from the program.
              A positive drug or alcohol test result shall also be grounds for
              dismissal from the program.****

              ***The provisions in these sentences shall also apply to students
              already enrolled in a health related program at the time of the
              effective date of this Rule.

              ****This paragraph also applies to students already enrolled in a
              health related program at the time of the effective date of this
              Rule.

       H.G.   A background check fee is required for each health related
              program application. The drug screening fee will be paid directly
              to the medical laboratory. Upon request, fee waivers may be
              approved by the Health Education Center's associate provost or
              provost to documented economically disadvantaged applicants
              (AFDC, Pell, Workforce, Etc.)

       II. Pathway Program:

          A. Students may progress to those health related programs that
             have limited availability via the Pathway Program. Up to 15
             percent of each limited enrollment program positions may be
             admitted through this procedure. Students in the Pathway
             Program must have a minimum 2.0 GPA and need no
             remediation. Students must meet their selected health program
             requirements as outlined by individual program Board Rules with
             the exception of the GPA criteria. At the time of health program
             enrollment, the GPA must, at minimum, be equivalent to 85
             percent of the program's required GPA or a minimum of a 2.0
             GPA, which ever is greater. Should there not be enough

                 DISTANCE EDUCATION PROGRAM IN VETERINARY TECHNOLOGY
The Distance Education Program is designed for students who cannot commute to campus. The credit earned by distance
education is the same as credit earned on campus. Students may combine distance education courses with on-site courses
in order to better accommodate work and family obligations. The difference between local and distance learning is in the
method of delivery, not in the content or the desired outcomes.
The Veterinary Technology Distance Education Program is based on the following assumptions:
     a. The general education courses are completed at a local community college prior to admission.
     b. Students have the initiative, resourcefulness and perseverance to work independently.
     c. Students have a solid relationship with an employer veterinarian.
     d. Students have experience using a computer and have access to a computer and the Internet.
     e. Students must subscribe to any Internet service.
     f.   Students must also subscribe to Veterinary Information Network.
The complete distance program application includes the following:
     a. The general college application and the $25 fee for new students at SPC.
     b. The selective admissions application Health Programs Application form.
     c. The supplemental application form for distance students.
     d. Transcripts from your high school (if no college degree) and any colleges you have attended, sent directly to SPC
          from each school.
Applicants are considered as soon as their file is complete. Higher priority is given to applicants meeting all of the following
          qualifications:
     a. Completion of the general education requirements.
     b. Significant computer experience.
     c. Currently employed by a veterinarian and have one year of full time veterinary employment or significant work
          experience.
     d. High cumulative college grade point average.
     e. Your place of employment has a graduate veterinary technician or two full time veterinarians who are AVMA
          members.

                Higher Education Program

Confirmation is sought for a grant proposal that was submitted, subject to Board of Trustees’
approval, to the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Postsecondary Education, for
approximately $264,600. The request is in response to the solicitation for the Demonstration
Projects to Ensure Students with Disabilities Receive a Quality Higher Education Program. See

period, if awarded, will commence October 1, 2005, and end September 30, 2008.

St. Petersburg College’s ―Disabilities Awareness Project‖ proposes to offer training for faculty
and administrators to equip them with the skills needed to teach and support students with
disabilities. With this project, SPC will borrow from the best practices of business and
disabilities technology to create a comprehensive and diverse package of offerings for faculty and
administrators. Because the need for faculty development will not end when this project’s term
is completed, SPC has designed the project to ensure sustainability and ongoing development.

The program will begin October 1, 2005, and operate for 36 months. The award will support the
salaries and benefits of one Technology Coordinator (supplement for current staff), one Training
Coordinator (supplement for current staff), seven Disability Champions (current SPC faculty),
four Workshop Developers (SPC Disability Specialists and Faculty), one Sign Language
Interpreter, one Captioner, two Instructional Technologists, and one Website Developer. The
award will also support travel, equipment, supplies, contractual and other costs. Furthermore, the
budget will provide for an indirect cost rate of 8% which will be used to support administrative
and accounting services needed to manage the grant. The overall cost for this project is
$348,283. We are requesting the amount of $264,000 in this grant solicitation. SPC’s in-kind
match includes the cost of personnel, fringe benefits, travel, and 8% of indirect costs ($83,683).

FROM:            Carl M. Kuttler, Jr.

SUBJECT:         Florida State Fire College-Hazardous Materials Training

Confirmation is sought for a proposal that was submitted, subject to Board of Trustees’

sought to accept funding and enter into any necessary contractual agreement(s), if awarded.

Florida State Fire College has requested that the College’s National Terrorism Preparedness
Institute (SPC/NTPI) develop a training program for sophisticated HAZMAT material.
SPC/NTPI provided a response and proposal and the Fire College is doing a cost-analysis to
determine if the project is feasible. Should the project be approved, the Fire College would like
to begin the training immediately.

The proposal delivers training by experienced instructors supplied by Response Technologies
Corporation, who will be a subcontracted by the College. After completing this program, the
HAZMAT technician will possess an understanding of air monitoring and detection equipment
items.

It is estimated that the amount of the College’s contract with the Fire College will be
approximately $276,513. The College’s subcontract with Response Technologies Corporation

SUBJECT:           Grant/Restricted Funds Contract Amendment Item(s)

Confirmation/approval is sought with respect to the following grant/restricted
funds contract item(s) which were previously approved, but have been amended,
modified, extended and/or need additional clarification.

    Agreement approved August 21, 2001 with the U.S. Department of
     Defense, Defense Information Systems Agency to deliver services and
     training through the National Terrorism Preparedness Institute (SPC/NTPI).
     The training provided under this Agreement currently focuses on the
    MINUTES OF THE WORKSHOP AND SPECIAL MEETING OF MAY 16, 2005

               BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF ST. PETERSBURG COLLEGE


       Homeland Defense training needs under the Northern Command. Other
       modifications to this Agreement were approved due to a change in
       deliverables; however, the most recent modification, approved by the Board
       on March 22, 2004, extended the Agreement through September 30, 2005 to
       accommodate the U.S. Pacific Command training schedule alignment with
       the anticipated deployment of software systems. This software deployment
       was delayed and in March 2005, SPC/NTPI requested and the Board
       approved an extension of the contract through June 30, 2006. The
       contracting officer has since extended the contract through September 30,
       2006. This recent extension will allow NTPI to complete web-based and
       conventional training. The original funding, in the amount of $5 million,
       remains unchanged.        Department—National Terrorism Preparedness

05-114.         The president sought preliminary approval of Item IX-J, Student Registration Fees
Commencing Session I, 2005-2006, in order to put into effect what the Legislature has asked us
to do so we can achieve the maximum benefit to this College. Mr. Conferlete Carney, Vice
President of Information Systems, Business Services, Planning & Budgeting, explained the bill
filed by Senator Dennis Jones regarding the Student Capital Improvement fee, and exceptions
that pertain to international students. President Kuttler noted he would like a future workshop
with the Board on this subject. He said this new fee would enable the College to do some
necessary capital improvements. He suggested the Board chair send a letter on behalf of the
Board to Senator Jones thanking him for pushing this bill through in the last minutes of the
legislative session. Dr. Furlong reported on how the student fee increase affected the 4-year
programs. Mr. Keene moved approval of Item IX-J. Mr. Johnston seconded the motion. Mr.
Keene voted aye; Mr. Johnston voted aye; Mrs. Bilirakis voted aye; Dr. Jones voted aye; and Mr.
Burke voted aye. Motion carried.

               Information regarding this item is as follows:

Weekly Report – Week Ending May 7, 2005

The 2005 Legislative Session ended at 11:45 PM on Friday with our ―take home‖ bill, the
Capital Improvement Fee, passing at 11:33 PM.

This preliminary report identifies the bills that passed and the ones that failed. Many things pass
in amendments on bills college lobbyists may not have been tracking. As far as we know, this is
where we are at this point.

    Changes the current rate of CIF from $1.00 per credit hour to a maximum of 10% of
      tuition for in-state students and phases the increase in over time with no more than a
      $2.00 increase in any year.
    Out-of-state students currently pay $3.00 per credit hour and it will increase to a
      maximum of 10% of the sum of tuition and fees.

    child, to establish and maintain legal residency for at least 12 months immediately before the
    student’s initial enrollment. There was never a House companion, this was heard as an
    amendment without going through a committee.
   Initial enrollment is defined as the first day of class at a higher education institution
   In order for a non-resident to be reclassified as a resident, a student, or his or her parent if the

    institution of higher education.

Excess Hours SB 2236 by Constantine
 This legislation was intended to implement the Office of Program Policy and Analysis and
   Government Accountability (OPPAGA) recommendations providing incentives to encourage
   students to graduate with fewer excess hours. This will be very labor intensive to administer.
 Requires the payment of 75% more than in-state tuition rates for students who take more than
   120 percent of the credit hours required for their associate or baccalaureate degrees.
 Exempts up to 24 credit hours taken by a student while enrolled at a community college if the
   credit hours apply to the student’s baccalaureate degree, which is intended to encourage
   students to take lower level courses at the CC.
 The following are the exemptions we were able to amend into the bill:
   • Hours earned through accelerated programs such as dual enrollment
   • Hours earned through internship hours
   • Medical or personal hardship withdrawals
   • Hours for a dual major
   • Hours taken by active duty military personnel
   • Hours taken for certificate programs

     reach the required number of hours needed for their degree/credential.
    Effective with the freshman class of fall 2005.

Governance HB 1001 by Goodlette

05-116.       The chairman opened the meeting for other business, including items of interest
from the Board members.

             President Kuttler noted he would be working with each trustee to review the
2005-06 budget and would like an hour or two with each so it can be passed at the June Board
meeting. Mr. Burke asked that information be provided to trustees prior to the individual
meetings.


05-117.        Dr. Jones sought possible action on writing a grant proposal to study the need for
4-year colleges in Florida and suggested it be a collaborative effort with other interested parties.
The Board was in agreement for staff to proceed with this effort. President Kuttler said since this
study was first mentioned, Phil Handy established a committee to come up with a master plan
statewide and suggested a trustee sit on that committee. Mr. Burke expressed he would like to be
on this committee and is awaiting the status.


05-118.       The president reported that SPC’s summer enrollment is currently down 3-4%;
though 4-year enrollment is up 47%. He said these enrollment projections make it difficult to
plan the 2005-06 budget; however, he would plan to initially bring a budget to the Board based
on even enrollment, but will seek final Board approval once fall enrollment can be better
determined.


05-119.        Mr. Burke talked about the fact that two of the four 2004-05 Apollo finalists are
staying on at SPC for their 4-year degree, and noted the great story of the winning student, thus
reflecting what community colleges are all about. He said while other colleges are talking about

               BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF ST. PETERSBURG COLLEGE


4-year degrees, SPC had approximately 140 graduates at spring graduation. He asked that these
real life stories be communicated to state government leaders showing that this is what has
become of the opportunities given this College. Dr. Furlong agreed to handle this effort, as well
as communicating SPC’s accreditation success, to every legislator.


05-120.         President Kuttler suggested a motion to approve spending approximately $45,000
for air fare and lodging of the baseball team, using any overage in student activities fees plus
supplemental funding if necessary. He supposed that some of the funds would be reimbursed by
the athletic association. Mr. Johnston moved approval. Mrs. Bilirakis seconded the motion. Mr.
Keene voted aye; Mr. Johnston voted aye; Mrs. Bilirakis voted aye; Dr. Jones voted aye; and Mr.
Burke voted aye. Motion carried.’


05-121.        The Board confirmed its June meeting for the 21st at 8:30 a.m., and its July
meeting for the 19th, with Governance discussion to be part of the regular agenda.


05-122.        Having no further business to come before the Board, Chairman Burke adjourned
the meeting at 9:22 a.m.
