Board of Governors, March 25, 1999 - APPENDIX III

REPORT OF THE PROPERTY AND FINANCE COMMITTEE

FOR APPROVAL

1. The Scotiabank Professorship in Research on Violence Against Women and Children

Recommended: That the Board of Governors approve the establishment of The Scotiabank Professorship in Research on Violence Against Women and Children funded by a gift of $1,000,000 from the Bank of Nova Scotia. The Professorship will be funded for 10 years, at which time the gift will be fully expended.

Background:

The Bank of Nova Scotia has announced a gift of $1.5 million, payable over five years commencing October 1999 (i.e., $300,000 per annum until 2004) directed to activities of the Centre for Research on Violence Against Women and Children. The Professorship is one of four components to be supported by this generous gift. The other three include:

$75,000 to the Scotiabank Student Research Internship in Studies in Violence Against Women and Children

$75,000 to the Scotiabank Scholarships for Studies in Violence Against Women and Children (to be approved by SCAPA, including detailed terms of scholarships) - two scholarships of $3,250 to be awarded annually for 10 years.

$350,000 to the Scotiabank Community Research Fund for Studies in Violence Against Women and Children. This fund will be expended over 10 years to support the research activities of the Centre for Violence Against Women and Children

The Senate and Board of Governors must approve the establishment of Academic Chairs and Professorships. The Professorship will be funded on a term basis over a period of 10 years, as permitted under the policy.

A selection committee will be established by the Centre for Women's Studies and Feminist Research. It is expected that the appointment will be at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor, on a Limited Term basis unless a Faculty is prepared to commit to a tenure track appointment. Under the latter circumstances, a Joint Appointments Committee will be appointed and the standard Senate-approved procedure for making joint appointments will be followed.

2. Award of Contract - Somerville House Renovations [BG.99-05]

Policy: The Property & Finance Committee, under the provisions of Policy 2.15 - Approval Authorities for Construction and Maintenance Projects - to award contracts for construction or maintenance projects costing $2.0 million and above.

Tenders on the Somerville House renovations related to the Academic Space Realignment Projects approved by the Board in January 1999 close on March 23, 1999. The bids are expected to exceed $2.0 million, and thus fall within the authority of Property & Finance to approve. However, in light of the timing of the close of tenders, rather than holding a special Property & Finance meeting to deal with this one item, the Committee has asked that the recommendation be presented for Board approval on March 25. [The proposal presented at the Board meeting appears below.]

Recommended: That the Board of Governors approve the award of the construction contract for renovations to Somerville House to Tonda Construction Ltd. in the amount of $2,225,949, exclusive of GST.

Background (presented at the Board meeting):

On January 28, 1999, the Board of Governors approved the Academic Space Realignment Projects at a cost of $6 million. This included the conversion of Somerville House, a central building on campus, to academic space and the use of the space to accommodate the needs of the Richard Ivey School of Business and the University's overall classroom requirements. This renovation will provide three 85 seat classrooms, one 200 seat classroom, and three computer laboratories.

Bids from pre-qualified contractors were received on March 23, 1999; they ranged from a low of $2,225, 949 (Tonda Construction Ltd.) to $2,595,000 (Bonnenco Construction Ltd.)
