President's Budget Advisory Committee

Minutes, October 2, 1992

Present:

President Armifiana began the meeting by briefing the members on the 1992-93 preliminary SSU budget and the $1.5 million gap that needs to be resolved. Using the Fall 1992 FTES funding models and a number of assumptions, it is likely that $1.3 million may be appropriated to SSU in Spring 1993 from the Academic Recovery Program (ARP). However, this assumption is viewed as too simple and logical to happen, and the possibility of getting this full amount is still questionable. Meanwhile, a decision has to be made to close the budget gap and to plan for the Spring 1993 semester.

VP Schiereth was asked to present the SSU's 1992-93 Budget Planning, Phase IV Report. This plan tries to close the budget gap based on the following models:

  1. Permanent faculty and staff will be fully funded.
  2. Part-Time Faculty for Fall will be funded.
  3. Vacant faculty and staff positions will be eliminated.
  4. FERP budget allocations will be eliminated.
  5. Fall FERPs will be funded.
  6. Bridge financing for retiring employees will be funded.
  7. OE&E for CMTS will be funded.
  8. OE&E for A&R will be funded.
  9. OE&E for Academic Affairs will be pooled.

Additionally, the following points of possible and practical financial flexibility and strategy were presented:

Discussions ensued on the models presented. Scenario C zeroes out the budget gap but leaves Academic Affairs with only $1.4 million in OE&E instead of the $2 million requirement. VP Schiereth offered to advance the money from his division's OE&E to help the Instruction Program plan their Spring 1993 semester while wafting for the estimated $1.3 million ARP bailout money. VP Farish maintained to leave Scenario C (which does not consider Spring P/T appointments) in order to get a bette.@ chance of getting the money from the Chancellor's Office.
