Section I

where, what, who and how of the OBC

By Evan Wellington/ Kaiya Gray(‘11-’12)/ Aimee Shattuck


Each term students pay tuition and fees to attend PSU. One such Fee is the Student Incidental Fee, this fee covers important services to students such as Smith Memorial Student Union, Campus Rec, Athletics, SALP and also your student organizations!

Proceeds from the Student Incidental Fee are allocated to different areas on campus by the Student Fee Committee (SFC). This committee decides how much of the Student Incidental Fee should be budgeted towards student organizations and therefore under the jurisdiction of the OBC.

The OBC then functions as a voting council for the approval of case by case budgetary requests from student Organizations as well as annual Tier placement decisions.

what is the purpose of the obc
What is the Purpose of the OBC?

The OBC serves as a funding boardto student organizations recognized by SALP. The OBC is dedicated to provide funding and assistance to student organizations in budget development, event planning, and expenditure processing in order to enhance the university community.

In order for the OBC to allocate funds in accordance with the OBC mission and guidelines, SFC guidelines, university policies, and state and federal law, it is vital that there be strongcommunication between your student organizations, the OBC, and your SALP Advisor.

Funds allocatedby the OBC still requires submitting the Request to Spend form to SALP in order for funds to be spent.

obc liaisons
OBC Liaisons:

Each student Organization has a designated OBC Liaison.

Your Liaison servesas the official contact point between you and the OBC.

Liaisons relay relevant information and coordinate closelywith SALP and student orgs in helping with requests.

A list of OBC Liaisons Assignments can be found on the OBC’s OrgSync portal under the Files tabor at bit.ly/psuobc

what is a spending tier
What is a Spending Tier?

Many factors come into play when determining tier placement such as student organization size, need, presence on campus, and recommendations from advisors.

A spending tier is a placement decided by the OBC which determines the maximum amount of student fee money a student organization can spend.

spending tiers
Spending Tiers

There are five Tier placements which determine spending caps for student organizations and their Base Operating Budgets:

what are the spending tiers

Base Operating Budget: $500

Tier Spending Cap: $3,000

Base Operating Budget: $3,000

Tier Spending Cap: $15,000

Base Operating Budget: $5,000

how does the base operating budget bob work
How Does the Base Operating Budget (BOB) Work?

Each student organization is given a base operating budget as part of the tier placement. Groups do not need to obtain approval from the OBC to spend out of their Base Operating Budget; however, all expenditures will require the approval (Request to Spend)of your SALP advisor.

Base Operating Budgets may be used for the general management of the organization at their discretion. These expenses should be in line with the mission of the organization and be beneficial to the campus community

Should these funds be exhausted prior to the end of the fiscal year, all other expenditures must be in the form of programming or travel requests submitted to the OBC which will be deducted from that student group’s tier spending cap.
