27 November 2000 Meeting Minutes
Present: T Keefe, B Fahey, H Freyhofer, B Crangle, D Kent, J Landry, E Wixson, P Campbell, D Moore.
Committee structure: the OS Speaker will be contacted about getting an OS representative for the committee. It was otherwise decided to stay with the present structure. A chair must be chosen after President Wharton approves the committee. Suggestions were made such as appointing co-chairs (Bill and a faculty member) or to have Bill act as a convener alongside a faculty chair. Discussion will continue at the next meeting.
Bill will send all committee members a draft of the report to be sent to Dr. Wharton for review before the next meeting.
Timeline: Bill reviewed the timeline for the committee’s work. Between March and May 2001 we will develop an initial set of strategic indicators. September to December will be the time to look at the strategic plans of the individual departments, review them and translate them into a budget while talking about the strategic plan in financial terms. The rest of the timeline is as outlined in the CBC Timeline handout.
Discussion followed on the level of detail needed by this committee. How will the CPC (College Planning Committee) and the CBC work together to attach the budget to the plan? Lack of interaction of the CPC to the campus is an ongoing problem. The CBC should give credence to the work the CPC does by funding it.
Horst will ask the CPC how they see themselves interacting with this committee. How to formalize that interaction?
Bill will have an updated prep spreadsheet ready for the next meeting.
Barbara Fahey talked with Gerry Boothby (re his experience with value-centered budgeting) about a possible visit for the next meeting on December 11. This is more likely to happen in January.
Bill passed out two articles: Strategies for Reallocation, and Contribution Analysis.
The next meeting is scheduled for December 11 at 3:30pm in Speare 124.
