Toward a more transparent financial system

Current Status:

  • Discussion of initial school scenarios between Provost, COO, and individual school deans (will conclude in late January)

  • Focus is now shifting to parallel processes:

    • Budget building for FY14-15

    • Scenario and reporting refinement

      • Improvement of accuracy and precision in underlying data

      • Move of modeling platform from Excel to Hyperion “cost of education” with transparency of allocation methods and drill-down capabilities

  • Parallel processes will converge near beginning of FY14-15 with translation of 14-15 budget into NFM terms and organization and new means of tracking

Next Steps:

  • Continue to refine and come to consensus on NIFM allocation methodologies

  • Develop automated system for extracting NIFM data, developing scenarios, generating targets

  • 2014-15 budget development will proceed as in years past:

    • 2013-14 targets used to set 2014-15 targets

    • Adjustments made to reflect unavoidable cost increases, salary increases, enrollment growth, and revenue assumptions related to graduate tuition

  • Once targets are established, NIFM methodology will determine levels of base and strategic operating support for schools, and allocations for administrative units.

  • These methodologies will be revisited and refined in 2014-15.

How Do We Allocate Central Service Costs?

  • Step 1: Define Service Categories that are not metered and/or directly recovered

  • Facilities Services

  • IT Services

  • Employee Services

  • Development/Alumni-Engagement Services

  • Central Library Services

  • Research Support Services

  • Student Support Services

    • Undergraduate Admissions Services

  • Academic Support Services

  • General Services (executive/managerial)

How Do We Allocate Central Service Costs?

  • Step 2: Verify Cost Data (are we counting the right dollars?)

  • Historical Operating Costs (including personnel) net of any recoveries

  • Is there a need to cover recurring costs that do not occur on an annual cycle (i.e., every two or three years)?

  • How consistent are your regular expenditures year to year?

  • In the New Financial Model, do you understand how you will finance major one-time expenditures?

    • Note Darden and Law requirement to accumulate funding for maintenance

  • Reserves (we do not count them in the model, but good sense requires that you have them (potential policy matter))

  • Step 2: Verify Cost Data (are we counting the right dollars?)

  • Is model dealing properly with cross-funding and transfers in your area? Requires detailed review.

  • Various opportunities to review data and discuss these issues will occur in the next six months.

How Do We Allocate Central Service Costs?

  • Step 3: Apply Allocation (Usage Approximation) Algorithms

  • Each central-cost category has its own

  • Developed by planning committees over years prior to 2013

  • Proposed by New Financial Model steering committee to President, EVP/COO and EVP/Provost in December 2012; adopted in spring 2013

How Do We Allocate Central Service Costs?

  • Step 3: Apply Allocation (Usage Approximation) Algorithms

  • Facilities Services:

    • Total cost is allocated by proportion of square feet occupied by all entities (includes proportional share of “general” space in shared buildings)

    • Note that utilities will be directly billed to units/schools for space they occupy (currently viewable as “memo” bills)

How Do We Allocate Central Service Costs?

  • Step 3: Apply Allocation (Usage Approximation) Algorithms

  • IT Services:

    • Total costs allocated by this formula: weighted 0.75 x proportion of serviced employees (excludes Facilities and IT employees) + weighted 0.25 x proportion of annual FTE students

    • Excludes Communication Services costs, which are recovered through billing.

How Do We Allocate Central Service Costs?

  • Step 3: Apply Allocation (Usage Approximation) Algorithms

  • Development (all University entities receiving gifts):

    • 41.5 percent of total central costs allocated by this formula: proportion of school/unit-specific gifts greater than $100K for last four years

    • 58.5 percent of total central costs temporarily covered by University grant

  • Alumni Engagement (schools only):

    • 41.5 percent of total central costs allocated by this formula: proportion of living alumni for all schools

    • 58.5 percent of total central costs temporarily covered by University grant

  • Central Library Services:

  • Total costs not covered by other funding sources allocated by this formula: proportion of sum of annual headcount students + annual number of doctoral degrees + FTE instructional/research faculty

How Do We Allocate Revenues?

  • Important issue for Central Service Providers: Are you affected by changes in allocations of revenue?

  • Undergraduate tuition(net of financial aid and blind to in-state vs. out-of-state proportions) will be allocated via a blended formula that considers includes the credit hours students take within a school (75%) and the schools with which students are affiliated (25%). Those undergraduate schools with differential tuitions or school-specific fees will receive that tuition (net of financial aid) or fee revenue directly, not through an allocation formula. Tuition revenues fees from summer session will be allocated directly to schools through a methodology currently in development.

How Do We Allocate Central Service Costs?

  • Important issue for Central Service Providers: Are you affected by changes in allocations of revenue?

  • Graduate tuitionwill be allocated directly to the schools of enrollment (and includes both financial aid and any out-of-state differential); implemented for 2013-14. Graduate tuition revenues and school-specific fees from summer session will be allocated directly to schools through a methodology currently in development.

  • Grants and contractswill be allocated to the unit holding the grant or contract.

  • Facilities and administrative cost recoverieswill be allocated to the unit holding the research grant.

  • Restricted endowment distribution will be allocated according to the donor’s wishes.

How Do We Allocate Revenues?

  • Important issue for Central Service Providers: Are you affected by changes in allocations of revenue?

  • The 50-basis point endowment administration feewill be allocated to the endowment owner.

  • Foundation supportin cash and other forms (including in-kind) must be reported as a source by each school.

  • Other revenue (gifts, sales, services, transfers, etc.) is allocated to the school that receives it.

  • ETF credits equal to direct expenditures in the same category are included in school revenue totals.

How Do We Allocate Revenues?

  • Important issue for Central Service Providers: Are you affected by changes in allocations of revenue?

  • Unrestricted state funding, unrestricted gifts and unrestricted endowment distributionwill be retained by the President and deployed in ways that include the following:

    • To maintain a program that will provide supplemental funding in such forms as short-term strategic support or longer-term base operating support from a central pool to ensure that all schools sustain excellence.

    • To invest in the University’s highest priorities as identified by the strategic planning process.
