IBHE Presentation 1 Illinois Higher Education FY2014 Budget Recommendations IBHE Board Presentation February 5, 2013 Dr. Alan Phillips
FY 2014 Budget Context (State) 2 IBHE Presentation Pension and Medicaid costs are exceeding the rate of State revenue growth. The State is currently experiencing a debt crisis (Current liabilities and the backlog of unpaid bills totals $8.5B). The State is months behind in its payments to colleges and Universities. Adequate financial aid funding for both MAP and Pell continues to be of concern. Based on GOMB guidance, we anticipate additional funding reductions in FY (GOMB Guidance – 4.62%) We still do not know the extent of any pension cost transfer.
FY 2014 Budget Context (Colleges & Universities) State funding for higher education operations has declined steadily over the last 15 years. There has been minimal funding for capital projects, to include renovation, remodeling, maintenance, and repair. Unfunded state mandates and regulatory requirements undermine efficiency and productivity. Illinois’ student financial aid system has been eroded at a time when low-income families have less ability to pay for college. Institutions try to protect instruction, but are often forced to squeeze cost savings out of instruction and student support services. The burden of financing a college education has increasingly fallen on students and families. 3 IBHE Presentation
FY 2014 Budget Framework We will continue to use the Step Level approach for the FY 2014 budget recommendations. The FY 2014 budget recommendations will include a performance funding component. The budget recommendations will support the goals of the Public Agenda. Priority of funding is directed toward maintaining core capacity, deferred maintenance, MAP, and funding for grants. 4 IBHE Presentation

FY 2014 Capital Improvements Capital renewal funding provides critical support to protect the state’s capital investment. Improving campus facilities helps schools attract, recruit, and retain students. Support for library projects, and science labs, and other campus facilities address multiple goals of the Illinois Public Agenda. Last Year, the Board approved a new capital project list for FY2013 and indicated support for Illinois Jobs Now! projects. However, there was no Capital Bill in FY2013, and the FY2014 project list is nearly identical to the FY2013 list. To date, nearly $900M in Illinois Jobs Now! higher education capital funds have been released. As of Fall 2012, the deferred maintenance backlog was $3.6 B. IBHE Presentation 10

The FY 2014 Higher Education Budget Recommendation focuses funding on the goals of the Illinois Public Agenda. The recommendation also allocates a portion of the funding to colleges and universities based on performance in accordance with Public Act (HB 1503). The recommendations feature an investment level (or step) approach utilized since FY The recommendations offer realistic scenarios that are sensitive to the state’s uncertain fiscal environment.
