For unexpected damage that does not result from ordinary wear and tear, the Faculty reserves budget that can be used to fund necessary and reasonable repairs. Exceptions are damage caused by ordinary wear and tear and damage corresponding with the lifetime of a device/component. The group concerned has to pay for the repairs of these types of damage.
The amount of funding granted depends on the specific circumstances and has to be decided in each case individually. Generally, the subunit has to pay up to 50 % of the total gross costs of the repairs from their own resources. This has to be specified in the application. If a different amount of funding is requested, the subunit has to state the reasons for this request. Applications for less then EUR 500 gross will not be approved due to the administrative effort (share of funding from the FGGA Repairs support).
The head of the subunit or the deputy head of the subunit – as its representative – has to submit an informal application containing reasons via e-mail to before commissioning the repair work or before ordering replacement parts (exceptions are extremely urgent cases; please state reasons shortly separately).
Invoicing of approved applications is done via the subunit in a timely fashion (covering the calendar year). The subunit finances the share of funding approved by the head of the Faculty in advance. Of the expenses actually incurred, the Dean’s Office will refund up to the (maximum) agreed amount of funding to the global budget cost centre of the subunit; on the latest following the submission of a half-year report.
