  • Only exception is a formula to generate R&R appropriations
  • CHE makes capital project recommendations
  • Capital projects may be:
    • State funded, requires General Assembly authorization
    • Non-state funded, sometimes requires General Assembly authorization
    • Cash funded
    • Authorized to issue debt – debt may or may not be repaid by the state

che review of capital projects
CHE Review of Capital projects
  • Certain capital projects require state review and approval
  • CHE REVIEWS and makes recommendations on capital projects that have been requested by the institutions
  • Statutory review depends on many things, including:
    • Type of project
    • Total cost of the project
    • Source of project funding
  • After CHE recommendation, projects move to State Budget Committee, State Budget Agency, Indiana Finance Authority and Governor
student financial aid
Student financial aid
  • A very complex, but important issue to affordability
  • Financial aid comes from many sources, but chiefly:
    • Federal government
    • State appropriations (SSACI)
    • Institutional aid
    • Private foundations/owners/employers
  • Financial Aid study jointly undertaken by CHE and SSACI to be presented in September to State Budget Committee
    • Aligning financial aid policy with state higher policy: particularly college completion
    • Recognizing the “new normal” student – majority of financial aid applicants are “non-traditional students with different types of needs and require a new approach to financial aid policy
the general assembly makes final determination
The General Assembly makes final determination
  • CHE makes recommendations
  • The Trustees by statute have virtually all of the decision making power and responsibility for institutional budgets and administration
  • The General Assembly is always free to accept, modify or reject the CHE recommendations
  • CHE must work with institutional staff, the legislature, other parts of state government and other stakeholders
  • CHE recommendations are almost never adopted to the dollar, but the General Assembly has always passed higher education budgets based on Commission recommended policies
