Summary: Each year, the City of Gallup prepares an annual budget for the upcoming fiscal year. The Department of Finance and Administration (DFA) requires Council to pass a resolution to adopt the 2020 Preliminary Budget. The approved budget along with documentation of approval is due to DFA by June 1, 2019.
The Gallup Police Department is seeking a budget adjustment to transfer and
expend funding for 18 Panasonic Tough-book laptops in the amount of $67,993.00. The
cost for each Tough-book is $3,773.21 (+ $75 for shipping) for a grand total of: $67,992.78.
The Department is also seeking to transfer $12,300 from three other operational accounts to the utility account (see attachment) to pay the negative balance.
Note: With only an initial approved partial purchase of 42 Tough-books for the FY 2020 CIP, there is a balance of 26 still needed for the original requested total of 68 (42 patrol officer in-car tough-books, 8 Community Service Aids, 11 Detectives, 7 Narcotic agents / Command Staff = 68). This transfer will enable the Department to purchase 18 of the remaining 26.
