FY 2013 Budget Context
• Pension and Medicaid costs are exceeding the rate of State
revenue growth.
• The State is currently experiencing a debt crisis (Current
liabilities and the backlog of unpaid bills totals $8.5B).
• The State is months behind in its payments to colleges and
• The State is facing potential decreases in financial aid funding
for both MAP and Pell.
• The Governor plans to maintain level funding for education for
the next three years.
IBHE Presentation
FY 2013 Budget Context
(Colleges & Universities)
• State funding for higher education has declined steadily over the
last 15 years.
• There has been minimal funding for capital projects, to include
renovation, remodeling, maintenance, and repair.
• Unfunded state mandates and regulatory requirements undermine
efficiency and productivity.
• Illinois’ student financial aid system has been eroded at a time
when low-income families have less ability to pay for college.
• Institutions often squeeze cost savings out of instruction and
student support services.
• The burden of financing a college education has increasingly fallen
on students and families.
IBHE Presentation
FY 2013 Budget Framework
• We will continue to use the Step Level approach for
the FY 2013 budget recommendations.
• The FY 2013 budget recommendations will include a
performance funding component.
• The budget recommendations will support the goals
of the Public Agenda.
• Maintaining core capacity, deferred maintenance,
MAP, and funding for grants will remain a priority.

FY 2013 Capital Improvements
• Capital renewal funding provides critical support to protect the state’s
capital investment.
• Improving campus facilities helps schools attract, recruit, and retain
students. Support for library projects, and science labs, and other campus
facilities address multiple goals of the Illinois Public Agenda.
• Last Year, the Board approved a new capital project list for FY2012 and
indicated support for Illinois Jobs Now! projects.
• However, there was no Capital Bill in FY2012, and the FY2013 project list is
nearly identical to the FY2012 list.
• To date, nearly $800M in Illinois Jobs Now! higher education capital funds
have been released.
• We expect $75M in private capital grant funds to soon be released.
• As of Fall 2011, the deferred maintenance backlog was $3.6 B.
IBHE Presentation
FY 2013 Capital Improvements
• FY2013 capital recommendations total nearly $1.6
Billion and include:
- Support for the Release of Illinois Jobs Now!
- $340M for capital renewal.
- $1.2B for capital projects at public universities,
IMSA, and community colleges (31 community
college projects).
- $48M for escalation and emergencies.
IBHE Presentation
• The FY 2013 Higher Education Budget Recommendation
focuses funding on the goals of the Illinois Public Agenda.
• The recommendation also allocates a portion of the funding
to colleges and universities based on performance in
accordance with Public Act 97-320 (HB 1503).
• The recommendations feature an investment level (or step)
approach utilized since FY 2009.
• The recommendations offer realistic scenarios that are
sensitive to the state’s uncertain fiscal environment.
