4 Financial sustainability…rules for surviving the grant roller coaster…or…financial lessons my wife taught me. 1.Savings account 2.No base expenditures on soft money 3.Don’t build what you cannot support under current base funds 4.Don’t balance the budget using tuition revenues 5.Don’t balance the budget using “accounting” measures

5 6.Don’t balance the budget with deferred liabilities 7.Establish fixed revenue allocations for all areas during good times and stick with them during bad. 8.Full disclosure of budgets…where everything comes from and where it goes. 9.Don’t “pre-spend’” revenues you don’t yet have. 10.If you do all of the above then salary settlements can be whatever you want as long as you are willing to face the real pain… that’s what sticking to these “rules” means

6 Thank you.
