4 Responsibility Center Management UF Administration response to Board of Trustees mandate to change budgeting system RCM will come into force Summer B 2010 For more information see:  

5 Responsibility Center Management Decentralizes decisions and financial authority and responsibility Places responsibility for revenue generation and spending decisions with the academic units Supports growth even when government funding is limited

6 Responsibility Center Management Responsibility Centers Eg., Colleges, Housing  Not Depts and Centers Receive all Revenue earned from their activities  Tuition  Grants  Entrepreneurial activities Are responsible for all direct expenses Share costs for support centers Support Centers Eg. Police department, Information Technology, Library Will be funded via assessments to each Responsibility Center

14 QuestionsAnswers What’s the immediate result of the implementation of RCM? No immediate result, as system has been designed to produce same distribution of funds as is now the case. Net increase from tuition results in increase to CLAS of $1.5 M It appears that RCM would encourage teaching larger classes with cheaper instructors, thus possibly lowering quality. Yes, there are incentives for this. It will be up to Deans to insist on retaining quality. Does implementation of RCM mean CLAS will have control over faculty lines? Probably not immediately, because of budget crisis. Hopefully in medium to long run, but Tigert will probably retain some say. Registrar controls space, so doesn’t this limit the flexibility of colleges to lower their exposure to charges for space? Yes, but RCM gives Deans a strong incentive to push for change in classroom assignment process, since they will be paying for space. To what extent will RCM be extended to the departmental level? No direct application, since some departments are more expensive to operate. However, College will monitor increases or decreases in SCHs at department level.

15 QuestionsAnswers How is CLAS charged to support the Library? Who else is charged? ( )http://www.aa.ufl.edu/rcm/ Allocations are based on weighted students Headcount and weighted faculty FTE Main library cost is shared by Fine Arts, DCP, CLAS, Latin American Studies, Business, Journalism, Law, Education, Engineering, HHP, Agriculture, DOCE, and the E&G State Funded Centers. Marston is shared by Agriculture, Engineering, and CLAS. HSC Library is shared by Health Center Colleges or Health Center State Funded Centers. Law Library is only the Law School.

16 QuestionsAnswers Does CLAS have an incentive for us to teach more students? Yes, but only if those students come from other colleges. More Polisci, less History is a zero-sum for CLAS. However, CLAS may benefit from shifting from over-utilized courses (Polisci, Psych) to under-utilized (Physics, Religion). If RCM is not going to be directly applied, how should CLAS allocate budgets to departments and centers? ??? Summer budgets will no longer be separately allocated to Colleges (and will be rolled into base). How much should CLAS pay per course? Option A. Percentage of salary (~11%) with floor (~$5K) and cap (~$10K). Option B. Flat rate per course (~$7500) Option C. Stratified flat rate by rank. Same/Diff rates for adjuncts and TAs?
