The Faculty Senate expects the Budget Task Force to operate in a transparent and open manner with full disclosure of budgetary and accounting information necessary to provide accurate budget information to the Faculty and the University Community. Meetings should be open, and times and locations of meetings should be posted in advance.
The role of the University Budget Task Force should primarily be that of fact finding with the charge, at a minimum, including the following:
- Provide the University Community with a full, detailed and complete accounting of revenues and expenditures (e.g. administration and business affairs, all university expenses, mandatory benefit costs, etc.) over the past four academic years (2002-03, 2003-04, 2004-05, and 2005-06) and the projected budgets for the current 2006-07 academic year and the 2007-08 academic year. This should include an accounting of reserves and carry-over funds for the years noted above.
- Provide an assessment of whether a structural deficit exists in the University budget, and if so, of what magnitude.
- Identify the reasons for significant increases and decreases in line item allocations over the period specified above.
- Identify additional questions that need to be addressed.
- Provide interim reports to the Senate Executive Committee as appropriate.
- Provide a final report to the Senate by early in the Spring Semester 2007.
The following item will be considered at a future Senate meeting, due to a lack of a quorum.
