ITEM 126-1012-R0105��������������� Spending Authority - Construction of New Reserch Lab Facility; The University of Montana-Missoula


THAT:�������������������������������������� Consistent with the provisions of MCA 18-2-102, the Board of Regents of Higher Education authorizes The University of Montana � Missoula to construct a new research lab facility.� This project estimated to cost $3,000,000 will be financed with indirect costs from research grants and unrestricted funds
