2015-16 Budget Kickoff Meeting
Central Service and Auxiliary Providers
• Today’s meeting is a starting point in an on-going dialogue.
• View this as an opportunity to receive answers to some of your
questions, and exchange ideas and thoughts.
• Support each other through this period of change recognizing that
we are in this together.
• Remember -- the next two years (2015 and 2016) will be budget
neutral (a.k.a. hold harmless) to provide an opportunity to adapt
and fully transition to the University’s Financial Model (UFM).
2015-16 Budget Kickoff Meeting
Status of the 14-15 Budget Translation
• Starting point–the 2014-15 board approved budget (6/23/2014)
– Approved new funding and compensation increases were processed as
installments in the Integrated System and translated to UFM.
– Revenue sources traditionally managed at the institutional level were
translated to Activity Centers including:
• Specifically designated General Fund Appropriation Revenues
• G&C and F&A Revenues
• Endowment Distribution and Administrative Fee Revenues
• Expendable Gifts and Gifts from Affiliated Foundation Revenues
• Use of Current Year Cash Balances
– New projects and awards were created to align budgeted revenue and
expenditures to the appropriate Activity Centers.
2015-16 Budget Kickoff Meeting
Status of the 14-15 Budget Translation (continued)
– New projects and awards, as needed, were created to align budgeted revenue and
expenditures to the appropriate Activity Centers.
– Items traditionally reserved centrally were shifted to the appropriate Activity
Centers including:
» Weather-related and Utility reserves
» Debt Service obligations
» Financial Aid reserves
Adjustments to organizational hierarchies and structures were modified as were
Activity Center mappings to support appropriate reporting structures in UFM.
Logic relating to the alignment and treatment of G&A recoveries and Central
Assessments was formalized within the model.
Impact Analysis for the implementation of changes related to processing F&A and
the Endowment Administrative Fee – confirmed that Central Service Providers
will be budget neutral as part of this transition.
Highlights of What’s New this Year
Early Board Approval – A high level version of the budget will be presented to
the board in April 2015 rather than June 2015.
Traditionally, administrative areas and schools adhered to the same budget
calendar for developing budget materials. For FY2015-16, with the
implementation UFM, CSPs will be asked to submit high level estimates based
– Preliminary Assumptions approved by the Finance Committee Chair as of
November 7, 2014, and
– Any impact of any Service Level changes that would result in an increase in
base expenses beyond the scope of expense increases outlined in the
preliminary assumptions

Highlights of What’s New this Year [continued]
Budget Neutrality
As was the case for F14-15, the UFM includes a provision for FY15-16 to be
budget-neutral. This terminology replaces the term “hold harmless,” to
acknowledge events that occur outside the scope of the financial model, such as
state mandated appropriation reductions, which prevent the institution from
guaranteeing a “hold harmless” status for all schools and units.
T&F Fee Approval
The current expectation is that both Graduate and Undergraduate Tuition & Fees
will be presented at the February board meeting.
• A new T&F form has been developed through collaboration of the AVP of Finance
special project team responsible for developing Multi-year tuition modeling, Student
Financial Services, and the Provost’s office.
Highlights of What’s New this Year [continued]
The only areas that should budget G&A allocations are Auxiliaries.
Central assessments in the schools should NOT be budgeted for 2015-16 since
this will be a product of the model.
ONLY budget direct expenditures.
The model’s allocation methodology includes:
– Allocations to both CSP’s and School are at the Activity Center level.
– The occupant of a space will pay for the space.
– Service level modifications and related costs will be reviewed by executive
management with feedback from schools.
Highlights of What’s New this Year [continued]
CSP Early Estimate of Cost Changes
• Schools and CSPs are responsible for budgeting ONLY direct costs; however;
schools will need an early indication of changes impacting their allocable costs
for planning discussions.
• CSPs will be required to provide estimates earlier in the process to facilitate
approval of requested changes and any service level modifications
– Template for direct costs
– Baseline is the 2014-15 translated budget
– UFM Discoverer Reports:
• Actual reports
• Budget reports - under development
Highlights of What’s New this Year [continued]
CSP of Cost Changes [continued]
• The expectation is that CSPs will develop their costs at whatever level of
granularity that this meaningful to them and provide at a minimum, summarized
estimates in an excel template - currently under development

3% reduction of their state E&G (SG), state sales and services (SS) and
state restricted (non-financial aid) funding sources.
• Organizational Excellence

Expenditure Assumptions (continued)
• Compensation
– Anticipated BOV-authorized salary increases for July 2015

and level of faculty salary increases is subject to change by the 2015 General
Assembly or the Board of Visitors
• All other faculty and University staff – It is projected that the Board of
Visitors will authorize a 3.0 percent merit increase
– Classified staff salary increases require state authorization.
For planning purposes, the University assumes no increase for
