2003 Action Plan - Context
Executive Summary | Context |
Priorities | Appendix
The first key feature is the general economic condition that
indicates continuing pressure on the state budget. While we
anticipate significant additional support from the workload
portion of the formula for FY 04 budget, most of the increase
will be absorbed through reductions in the State portion of
the base budget and continuing operations to support the significantly
increased number of credit hours. A second key feature is that
the University System of Georgia (USG) is developing a strategic
plan that will influence our priorities. In addition, USG has
developed a number of benchmark indicators (see Table 20 for
a list of peer institutions) that are to be reported annually.
The primary commitment is to support of instructional and strategic
research programs that are aligned with Strategic Plan 2000.
We will continue our progress in the development of systematic
planning and evaluation mechanisms and processes within the
Decisions will be guided
by the following principles:
- For academic units, enrollment trends, program quality,
external support, and research productivity should be considered.
- For non-academic cost centers in support areas, reduced
support should be given to those areas with higher costs
institutions and to those less effective/efficient or central
to the strategic plan.
- For auxiliary units where revenues exceed
projections, state funds may be shifted away from their
auxiliary fund balances.
