The Fund 101 remodeling allocation has been at the level of $280,000 for approximately ten years. The primary emphasis of this funding exercise is for support of the instructional program.
The larger schools and colleges have a specified amount of funding available each year (Category 1A). This predictable level of funding allows better planning and enables them to split the funds, if they wish, among several projects. Staff at Facilities Planning & Management (FP&M) plan for the use of classroom (Category 3) and all-campus contingency funds (Category 2) to meet the most pressing needs in these areas.
Under Category 1B, divisions have applied annually for a share of $50,000 on a competitive basis. Relatively few of the proposed projects in the last five years have fit well under the criteria of support for the instructional program. Recognizing that the College of Letters and Science has the greatest share of the undergraduate instructional responsibility for the University, the SRPC voted in December, 2004 to allocate the $50,000 to L&S in future years. L&S will provide the SRPC with an annual report of how these funds have been utilized. As a result of this action, there will be no competition for remodeling funds in future years.
The policy review committee recommended consolidation of the Category 1A and 1B into a single allocation Category 1 with funding assignments defined to recognize the continued association of the former Category 1B funds, $50,000, to the College of Letters and Science.
This funding allocation policy and process will be evaluated by the SRPC annually (December) to decide if modifications are necessary or appropriate. If there is an increase or decrease in funds, the SRPC would determine to which category or categories this should be allocated.
A report (December) will be made to the SRPC on the use of the prior year’s annual allocation and will include a short descriptive title of each project and the project cost.
The three categories and the procedures for allocating funds within the categories are as follows:
Engineering, Education, and CALS each receive $22,500 and the College of Letters and Science shall receive $72,500 for projects that primarily benefit undergraduate instruction. The primary emphasis of this funding exercise is for support of the instructional program. FP&M will process budget transfers to the four units in July of each fiscal year in the allocated amount. Each unit should set aside a UDDS for this purpose. Units will write requisitions against this UDDS. If a unit would like to set up Fund 101 account numbers to separately account for the projects, they will need to work with Accounting Services to set this up. The four units receiving funds will report once each year in December on how the prior year funds have been used.
This category includes contingency fund needs in support of the instruction program as determined by FP&M, to be allocated in amounts of $20,000 or less to benefit a minimum of two schools or colleges. A report to the SRPC on how these funds are expended is made in December of each year.
This category provides for general assignment classroom remodeling needs as determined by the Space Management Office (classroom planning & management section). Non-traditional expenditures or those having policy implications will be brought to SRPC for consideration in advance of commitment of funds. A report to the SRPC on how these funds are spent is made in December of each year.
