The available of technology, such as, computers, tablets, ebooks, and even Internet are absent in many households in America still. As of 2013, the Census Bureau suggested that “84% of U.S. households own a computer, and 73% of U.S. households have a computer with a broadband connection to the internet (Pew Research Center).” It also mentioned “63.6% having a handheld computer. (Census Bureau)” A survey by Pew Research Center confirmed those stats, as 70% reported they have broadband access. These numbers show that there is still a large number of Americans who don’t own a computer, nor have access to the Internet. “Nearly 25 million households (21%) have no regular internet access at all, either at home or elsewhere (Pew Research Center).” This is the purpose for the Community Tech Center. The ultimate goal is to stimulate the use of technology in a community by providing devices and Internet access, but not only providing the tools but also building technical skills.

Statement of Work—Project Description and
1. We intend to get funding from either private and/or public organizations who want to see information technology grow in the community. 2. The aim is to target a building in a safe location for low to middle class citizens to take advantage of this opportunity. 3. Connecting with certain technology vendors who may want to contribute, may allow the center to receive discounted hardware and software, which includes desktops, laptops, iPad, kindles, antiviruses, learning software, etc. 4. Seeking volunteers who may want to teach classes that further IT knowledge will also be beneficial, funds could be used to pay any other educational services that would be needed. 5. Because of the merchandise within the facility, security will need to be available 24x7 and insurance will be needed on all merchandise.
1. The Tech Center is expected to provide an ergonomic environment containing up-to-date hardware such as laptops, desktops, monitors, printers, and tablets (kindles, iPad, etc.). 2. Ergonomic chairs and keyboards will add for comfort-ability. 3. Various software will be needed for success, including internet access, eBooks, antiviruses, and other learning and word processing tools. 4. Security will need to be contracted and insurance contracts will need to be put in place. 5. The most important part is the facility, which needs to have functioning plumbing along with heating and air.
1. Cost for building a Tech center include the building, equipment and salaries for all employees working there. 2. Rent 3000 - 4000 sq. ft. building with rent of up to $4,000, with a contingency budget of $1,000. Must contain working plumbing and heating and air. For 4 months’ rent $16,000, contingency of $4,000. 3. The equipment will include computers, tablets, software, and furniture which will cost $25,000, with a contingency budget of $5,000. 4. Security system service budget of $2500.
5. Total Budget of $45,000, and contingency budget of $10,000. 6. The time frame will be 3-4 months.
7. The objective is to provide the place where people may come to use and learn more about the technology that is being used in everyday life. 8. Seek volunteers for center.
