President's Budget Advisory Committee
Minutes, March 22,1991

Present:

Recommendations on the use or rollover of any fund balance in 1990-91 were deferred pending written proposals from senior level administrators. These proposals will be distributed on or around the 10th of April for the meeting on the 17th. Approaches on the use of the fund balance for next fiscal year were suggested. One is the university approach where the fund balance would be used to mitigate the campus' budget cut by cutting the top before assessing departments. The other approach is where departments would be allowed to use their year-end savings to mitigate their own budget cut. Or, both approaches could be utilized. Further discussion will commence at the next meeting.

University-wide funding requests for fiscal year 1991-92 were distributed and presented by respective senior level administrators. Issues as to the emphasis on the student recruitment program versus the retention program and whether to continue providing the use of the chargecard service were discussed briefly. Continued deliberations on the following requests will ensue in next meeting
