Bill asked the committee to recommend to the president the acceptance of the FY06 budget request. Dan Moore moved, and Alice Staples seconded, to do so. Bill will take the recommendation to the cabinet and president.

Alice gave an update on the FBRC. They are still working on how to deal with classes with low enrollments – how best to manage our resources to, as Dan put it, “contribute to the knowledge and skills of our students”. This led to some discussion on the issue of moving into a 4-credit curriculum. Nick suggested using WebCT, which would allow us the flexibility to go to 4-credits without changing our current class schedule.

Bill presented and reviewed his draft of the FY05 third quarter budget update. Addressed to the president, this letter will be sent to all employees following final approval by the CBC (via email).

The energy subcommittee submitted its report to Bill for use in preparing a final report for Dr. Wharton due this month. The University Environmental Committee also received the report. They have not yet taken any action on it.

The group developed a preliminary list for next fall’s work plan:

1.      Contribution margin and contribution in service

2.      Programs with low enrollment

3.      margin and reserves

4.      Energy problem (DPW to join discussion)

5.      Health care (SPPC reps to join discussion)

6.      Comparators (update from Nick)

7.      New system-wide strategic indicators

8.      R&R and Deferred Maintenance

9.      Student fees (start early with student allocations committee)

10.  Graduate budget (Dennise, Doreen to join discussion)

11.  Financial Aid

12.  Compensation and benefits

Bill asked for a couple of volunteers to develop a questionnaire to assess the effectiveness of the CBC. What did we do right? What was done wrong? What brings us to meetings? etc. Richard offered to do that using Bill’s questionnaire from the first year of the CBC as a model.

Richard commented that an alternative agenda is needed for CBC meetings that Bill cannot attend. Nick suggested that one of those backup topics could be energy issues. Bill also suggested that Nick could always talk about comparators.

This last CBC meeting of FY05 was adjourned at 9:20am.
