Why AR 311o? Accreditation Recommendation # 2 :
“The district and the colleges develop and implement a resource
allocation model:
Driven by planning
That includes all district funds and
Is open, transparent, inclusive, and
That is widely disseminated and
Reviewed/evaluated periodically for effectiveness”
Background (cont.)

• Based on general consensus of the input across the district,
determined that the issues were not with the DRAC Model but
with allocation of basic aid resources
• Developed illustrative model to provide information regarding
planning and resources for better communication
• Instrumental in getting BP 3110 developed
• AR 3110 was the next step in implementation

Basic Aid Allocation
Board of Trustees Presentation
February 27, 2012
AR 3110
Follows BP 3110
Will culminate in a master list of projects to be funded
by basic aid which follows the budget cycle
Allocation cycle will conform with budget development
Linked to property tax schedule and conservative
Unless emergency situation, the cycle will be followed
• District-wide participatory governance committee
whose role is to implement the Basic Aid Allocation
• Charged with implementing BP 3110 and AR 3110
• Utilizes plans developed by other district-wide
councils and committees
• Follows the annual basic aid allocation cycle which
follows the budget cycle
Composed of 17 positions:
• Vice Chancellor of Business (chair)
• Vice Presidents of Instruction (2)
• Directors of Facilities (2)

• Directors of Fiscal Services (2)
• Academic Senate Presidents and/or reps (4)
• Vice Chancellor of Technology and Learning Services
• Classified Senate Presidents or reps (2)
• CSEA rep (1)
Determining allocation amounts:
(Refer to page 3 of 7 of the AR)
• Conservative estimation of property tax excess
Unallocated balance from PY + estimated CY = Total
estimated property taxes for basic aid
Contingency for Unrealized Tax Collection = no less than
20 %
Amount available for allocation = no more than 80% of
Total estimated property taxes for basic aid
Committee can allocation less than 80% if it’s appropriate
Allocation process:
(Refer to page 4 of 7 of the AR)
• Required amounts for Long Term Obligations such as
Retiree Benefit Liability and fixed expense commitments
such as Advocacy and Legal Costs will be funded first
because they are liabilities, not discretionary
Remaining balance will fund: a) capital construction,
major renovation, large infrastructure, and site
development; b) major technology initiatives; c) 50 %
match for scheduled maintenance, smaller renovation
projects, and maintenance equipment
Allocation process:
(Refer to page 5 of 7 of the AR)
• Majority portion of basic aid intended for areas of
capital construction, major renovation, large
infrastructure, and site development
• Allocation of scheduled maintenance will be based
on distribution ratios between the colleges used in
the DRAC model for specific projects
Allocation process:
Capital Improvement Committee (CIC) will be the
district wide participatory governance committee
responsible for definitions of capital construction and
other facilities related terms
Common definitions, transparent, and clear
Allocations must be used within 5 years on the specific
project for which funding was approved
Any remaining funds return to the basic aid fund for
reallocation in the next year
Allocation process:
BAARC can recommend funding for a project that has
phases over multiple years, if appropriate.
BAARC is to rely strongly upon existing priorities in the
plan documents
However, may have to consider Total Allocation amount,
queuing of projects for state funding consideration,
phasing considerations, cash flow, and melding the
various plans into one recommended list for basic aid
allocation recommendation
Capital projects will include a change order contingency
Allocation process:
• Any Major Tech Project for consideration for funding
must be included in the District-wide Tech Plan and
must clearly be a one-time project:
Clear description
Detailed scope
Specific dollar amount
If phases, much be outlined
Ongoing maintenance not to be funded by basic aid
Changes and/or enhancements or added features to projects require a
new request and cannot be funded through original project allocation
Making recommendations:
The Basic Aid Recommendations will be made to the
Chancellor, who will share and confer with the
Presidents before making final recommendations to the
Board of Trustees
Master list of projects, with project description, recommended amount, and
Future phases will be clearly disclosed with projected future costs and timing
Cover letter and narrative report from BAARC explaining the process,
considerations, background Chancellor should have
If the Chancellor recommends any changes to BAARC’s recommendation, the
chancellor will clearly provide the changes and explanations prior to their
being included in the Tentative and Final Budget for Board of Trustee
If consensus cannot take place in BAARC, chair will bring issue to Chancellor
who will be authorized to make final decision
There will be evaluation of BP 3110 and AR 3110 for
effectiveness and adherence to the Policy and
Administrative Regulation
Once a year, open and transparent
Make recommendations for improving or adjusting
Communication of the results of the assessment will be
widely disseminated
Any adjustments to the process will be widely
disseminated and keep with the intent of the BP and AR
