University Budget Committee Structure Review HSU BUDGET
Attributes of Effective Committees • State-wide Academic Senate Survey of effective budget committees revealed: • Frequency of Meetings • Continuity in Membership • Regular Attendance • Staff Support for Research
Best Practices • Appoint and elect diverse and dedicated committee members • Memberships most often contain more faculty members than other represented groups; memberships also often include representatives from administration, staff, and students. • Provide strong leadership and clear goals • Establish an environment of trust • Communicate frequently and openly
HSU’s University Budget Committee • Frequency of Meetings – monthly meetings in the Fall; accelerated schedule for Spring • Continuity in Membership – • staggered 3 year terms, or • term by virtue of members appointment • Academic Senate President is Co-chair • Associated Student President is one-year term • Associated Student representative is one-year term • Regular Attendance – dedicated members attend almost every meeting • Staff Support for Research
HSU University Budget Process • Open and transparent budget process with exchange of information and ideas • Membership has been through the process twice • Process is really designed to address budget increases and not budget reductions • Committee has spent a lot of time trying to understand the functions of the major divisions and the impacts that reductions would have on their divisions, but did not feel they knew enough to make a recommendation to the President on matters of divisional reductions.
Areas to Reexamine • Summary • UBC struggles with budget process timeline • In order to provide each division with planning time to respond to the Governor’s January budget, the UBC planning timeframe requires almost weekly meetings from March through early May • UBC has been understaffed and so the Committee did not start the process of looking at Peer institutional data for benchmarking and comparative data
HSU University Budget Process • Summary • Significant improvement over past budget processes • Open and transparent process • Faculty, staff, and students are engaged and making a meaningful contribution
HSU Budget • Authorized and State funded enrollment level is 7,389 Full-time Equivalent Student (FTES), an increase of 180 students over 2004-05. • FY05-06 budget built on the assumption of enrolling 7,268 FTES (including Summer Session) • Summer actual enrollments reported at 240 FTES • Need approximately 7,171 FTES for Fall and 6,884 FTES for Spring to meet HSU’s internal budget estimate for an annual average of 7,268 FTES • Fall estimate (as of September 1) predicts a Fall enrollment of 6,950 FTES; HSU’s annual average will probably be about 7,100 FTES. To meet our 7,268 FTES internal target, we would have to enroll 7,106 FTES Spring 2006 [156 FTES more than Fall]
