BUDGET SUMMARY Overall the recurring budget increased $3.8 million even with a $7.5 million reduction in general revenue. We received a $2.25 million increase in general revenue for operational support and $9.3 million in tuition increase and adjustments. Although we have additional budget, the carry forward amount used to pay for nonrecurring priorities is only $9.0 million compared to $13.5 million last year. The main difference is we did not have the $4.0 million in recurring reserves this year. The budget reflects recurring reductions of $1.7 million. In addition, $722 thousand of new allocations are included. Total general revenue and lottery for 12/13 is $65.9 million compared to $90.8 million in 07/08. Without including PO&M dollars, general revenue and lottery for 12/13 is $48.2 million compared to $79.2 million in 07/08.
BUDGET SUMMARY We continue to maintain $4.0 million in nonrecurring reserves for call backs this year or additional budget reductions next year. Of the total E&G budget, 81.2% of the budget is salaries and benefits and OPS, 4.3% is utilities and the remaining 14.5% is operating expenses

Potential Budget Issues Legislative action required employees to pay 3% of their salary into the defined benefit plan or the defined contribution plan this fiscal year. A lawsuit was filed and the appeal is with the State Supreme Court. If the University is required to repay the monies to the employees and we do not receive funding from the state, this cost is approximately $2.1 million/year. An additional 2% reduction in contribution for ORP and Investment Plan participants was legislated for next fiscal year. The budget was reduced $1.0 million based on this change. We are holding these monies in reserve until a court decision is determined. This budget assumes the BOG approves the 15% tuition differential
