22 Debt Affordability Committee 22 UMASS, the State Universities and Community Colleges and their component units, some of which issue debt, are shown in the Commonwealth’s financial reports separately as “business-type activities” – i.e., they provide services in exchange for fees. These institutions are Commonwealth departments and not separate legal entities, and their component units are therefore component units of the Commonwealth. UMASS has 4 component units, including the UMASS Building Authority and the Worcester City Campus Corporation, both of which have issued debt. The State Universities (formerly the state colleges) include the State College Building Authority, a component unit that has issued debt, and each of the 9 State Universities and 15 Community Colleges has a foundation that is a component unit, the primary function of which is fund raising, though some foundations have also issued debt. Debt of these institutions and their component units is not the Commonwealth’s liability, except where that debt is guaranteed, in which case for financial reporting purposes it becomes a contingent liability of the state.
