14 BPT Sub-committee Worked hard! Held many meetings Overriding Recommendation The college should develop and implement a well articulated planning process for adding or eliminating instructional programs. This program viability process should be integrated with other planning initiatives at the college.

16 Sub-committee cont. Specific recommendation: The college should balance the currently projected operating budget deficit through a combination of the following: Reduce spending Reallocate existing funding Increase available funding
17 Recommendations cont. Reduce Instructional Operating Spending by Separating Entrepreneurial/Experimental Programs Support these programs from non-operating or temporary funds until proven Create separate instructional budget for this purpose (this would save $203,455) Radiology Technology (save $125K)
18 Recommendations Cont. Reduce spending through enrollment management Potential savings from eliminating some classes with 10 or fewer students Would save $262,000
