Hey, So I work the systems support for some university departments, and the amount of funding we get from one of the departments is in no way proportional to the amount of support we give them (they easily take up 3/5ths of our time and resources, but give maybe 1/4 of our funds). I've heard this is because there are rules about NFS grants that forbid money being spent on servicing equipment. Out of curiosity is this true? At all? Does anyone work at a university where the Systems support folks don't get screwed? How do they manage it?
