3 Part 1. Why is Budget Important? We value what we spend money on. Our long term revenues do not keep pace with our expenditures. We will face another year of difficult trade offs. We cannot look to the state for more money. Our represented employee costs are fixed through negotiated contracts. We must look at what programs and services we offer, how we deliver them, and how we support them. 3

4 Ongoing, “Structural” Deficit Business model unsustainable State reducing direct funding and not addressing rising fixed costs, such as PERS and health care Up to local jurisdictions to innovate and/or cut services/positions and/or renegotiate labor agreements College has the ability to increase revenue by increasing enrollment Increasing tuition and fees limited by mission and competition 4

5 Causes of the Structural Deficit Declining state revenue support Health care costs rising 15% PERS costs rising (every two years) Salaries rising 3% Enrollment projected to decline 2% 5

6 6

7 Major Uncertainties Enrollment (will it decline by 2%) Health care cost increase (by how much?) Current year spending level (impacts ending balance; under spending allows investment opportunities) State funding 7

8 State Funding Status State funding for all community colleges is based on $410 million for the two years FY11-12 and FY12-13; MHCC budgeted our share at $41 million Variables: the state may seek a 7% hold back in second year; resulting in a lower base for FY13-14 PERS rates for FY11-12 are based on a 2009 valuation; PERS rates for FY13-14 will be based on a 2011 valuation. 8

9 Part 2: Policy Issues Regarding Funds No distinction between reserves and contingency No criteria for contingency requests No set policy on reserves level No ability to innovate and generate additional revenue No comprehensive approach to deferred maintenance and capital projects No documented approach to one time only state funding 9

10 Recommendations Set separate un-appropriated reserve fund with specific target to work towards Set separate contingency fund with criteria Set Innovation Fund for testing revenue expansion ideas Set Capital Fund with criteria for deferred maintenance and major capital projects Revisit plan for potential GO Bond Clarify treatment of “additional” state funds 10

11 Reserve Fund Set at ?% based on best practices and potential impact on bond ratings Establish plan to build toward that goal, using portion of ending fund balance each year Designate as un-appropriated. Unspent without a separate budget appropriation (emergency) process. 11

12 Ending Fund Balance General Fund ending fund balance has been rebuilt over the past three years through a combination of savings and transfers of unrestricted funds to the general fund. Currently at approximately 6% of General Fund. 12

13 13

14 Contingency Fund Set at ?% of general fund based on comparable community colleges and public jurisdictions Set criteria for Board access: ▫ Emergency situations that may jeopardize health and safety ▫ Public commitment or contractual mandate ▫ Efficiencies ▫ No funding exists in current budgets ▫ Board may “designate” funds in increased contingency for future decisions 14

15 Innovation Fund Fund approaches that will generate additional revenue above cost and/or increase completion rates Balance the budget through expansion and contraction Use $1,000,000 of under-spending from FY10-11 Carefully monitor progress and verify results Risk awareness – either way! 15

16 Examples for Innovation Fund Strategies to increase enrollment ▫New or expanded “profitable” programs ▫Quicker financial aid turnaround ▫Outreach to local high schools ▫Outreach to veterans seeking education and training Strategies to increase retention / completion ▫Increased mentoring/advising (e.g. ABS; GED) ▫Better articulations; better pathways ▫ 16

17 Capital Fund Develop schedule for addressing backlog in deferred maintenance Develop processes for prioritizing deferred maintenance and major capital projects Decentralize funding and decision making Set aside $800,000 in under-spending from FY10-11 pending a plan presented in Nov/Dec following review by Facilities Council 17

18 Examples of potential capital funds Deferred maintenance Major capital for state, federal and GO Bond Classroom improvements Health and safety Athletics Operations and maintenance 18

19 State Funding Reserve $1,519,388 in separate account pending increase in funding to the promised $410 million dollar level Clarify whether funds will be “recaptured” in FY12-13 and what the new state “base level” of funding will be Be aware of shift to “completion based” funding Do not spend! 19

20 Part 3: Systematic Change How do we rethink our basic model? What process invites innovation, honesty, and clarity, and builds trust? How do we make good business decisions for our customers? 20

21 What Might it Look Like? Multi year process of change Program review based on completion, overall cost of instruction, employment potential, uniqueness, etc. New or expanded program offerings Different approaches to instruction (e.g. differential tuition; class size; expanded times of instruction) Increase administrative efficiencies Employee salary and benefit costs review, especially health care and PERS Capital improvement plan and identified capital budgets Innovative approaches to expanding enrollment 21

22 Part 4: Budget Process Budget Review Team Represents all college stakeholders (full and part time faculty; deans; classified/administrative support; students) Advises President; meets October to March Develops and frames policy choices through issue papers (e.g. parking fee) Identifies policy choices through input from Board and college stakeholders Frames menu of options Seeks agreement among stakeholders on financial impact of different choices Open, clear process 22

23 Budget Review Team Timelines October – December: Solicits ideas from stakeholders; develops and discusses policy options Jan. – Feb.: Frames menu of choices March: Delivers options to President for decisions March/April: Budget Office verifies decisions and incorporates into President’s budget April: President presents budget to Board for discussion, amendment, and approval June: TSCC reviews and certifies and Board adopts budget 23

24 Input: Board Budget Issues Ideally, identify by Board retreat in September Consider in conjunction with other budget choices during spring, 2012. Examples already identified based on past discussions: ▫ Differential tuition ▫ Aquatics Center ▫ Other tuition options 24

25 Part 5: Revenues Adopted Budget $211,880,035 General Fund (major discretionary funds) $66,780,654 Student Financial Aid Fund $65,896,990 Federal, State & Special Grant Projects $58,950,000 All other funds $20,252,391 Our discussions will focus on the gap in the General Fund 25

53 Employment Costs Costs vary dramatically depending on years of experience, position responsibilities and classification. Fringe costs are an additional 50% to 57% of full- time employee salaries. (e.g.for 50% it’s approx. 20% PERS, 18% Health Insurance; 9% Legal mandates – Soc. Sec.; 3% other) Fringe costs are increasing faster than revenues. Employment costs are fixed for the next two years for represented employees. Changes cannot be used to balance next year’s budget without consent of the unions. 53

54 Employer Paid Fringe Costs Public Employee Retirement System (PERS): When the social security program was established in 1935, it excluded public employees. PERS, which became effective July 1, 1946, was designed to offer a pension program for public employees. In the early 1950’s, the option to participate in Social Security was extended to public employees. The PERS program underwent a major overhaul in the 1960’s, then again from 1997 until 2007. 54

55 Employer Paid Fringe Costs, Cont’d Mt. Hood PERS contributions include the following, as a percentage of eligible employee’s annual income: ▫ Employee Contribution: 6% paid by Mt. Hood on behalf of employees; contribution goes into Individual Account Program (IAP); contractually required for many employee groups. ▫ Employer Assessment: This is the College’s share of the statewide PERS program costs. This rate for most MHCC employees is currently 15.68%. However, the rate is offset by the balance in MHCC’s side account, which was established in 2003 by borrowing at a lower interest rate. The side account is invested, and subject to market earnings and losses. The side account brings MHCC’s employer contribution rate down to 5.62%. This rate is based on a December 31, 2009 actuarial and is adjusted every two years. ▫ Internal debt assessment: The debt service to pay for the borrowing that established the side account is collected by an internal payroll assessment. The rate beginning July 1, 2011, is 8.5%. The net savings between the rate credit and the internal assessment is 2.15%. 55

56 Employer Paid Fringe Costs, Cont’d Health care: Costs include medical, dental and vision coverage for employees and their families. Plans are provided through the Oregon Educators Benefit Board. Plans offered include ODS and Kaiser medical, dental and vision plans and Willamette dental plan. Employee contributions for this coverage range from 0% to 20%, depending on plan selection and employee group. Other benefits: Mt. Hood provides Social Security, Medicare, long-term disability, life, worker’s compensation and unemployment insurance, tax sheltered annuities and early retirement benefits. Some benefits vary by employee group. 56

57 Employer Paid Fringe Costs, Cont’d The average fringe costs used for each employee group vary based on the unique demographics of each group as well as the salary base from which the rate is calculated. On average, fringe rates are comprised of the following: PERS Employee Share: 6% Medical Insurance: 15.9% PERS Employer Costs: 13.6% Dental Insurance: 2% Vision Insurance:.3% Early Retirement: 3.8% Social Security/Medicare: 7.7% Unemployment:.25% Long-term Disability Insurance:.27% Life Insurance:.01% Workers Compensation Insurance:.66% 57
