Minutes from the February 14 and February 21 meetings were approved.

A revised 2006 – 2009 budget Summary was distributed for discussion next week.

An informal report by Group One of their meeting with Ed Poppel, Marie Zeglen, Sheri Austin and Katie Joyner (referred to as the budget group) was discussed.  The shift in E&G budgets in 1999 is still partially unexplainable.  The budget group agreed to create data for the Faculty Finance Committee, specifically the End of Fiscal Year allocations to all E&G colleges going as far back as 2000 if possible.  The anticipated deadline to receive the data is Friday, March 2 but it could take longer.  The budget group is unable to provide non-state income for the E&G colleges for the same time period.  The budget group confirmed there is no formula for calculating budgets, instead, the allocations follow an incremental model but there is no set standard from year to year.  It was confirmed that independent budgets not being spent in UF are not reflected in table V-3.  The Faculty Committee to Investigate the History of the CLAS budget has expressed interest in the report. A representative of the Faculty Finance Committee is willing to meet with the investigative committee to share preliminary findings.  Conclusions are still tentative until all data are received.

The committee chair will provide a brief report at the Chairs & Directors’ meeting March 2nd.  The report will include

There was brief discussion concerning the possible focus for next year’s committee members.  One suggestion was for the future committee to review how decisions are made in the college and explore how budgets are allocated to departments.

Next meeting

Wednesday, March 7 , 8:30, Dean’s conference room.
