9. Review - Budgets and Fiscal Planning Committee

Walter Loveland (Budgets and Fiscal Planning Committee) April 28, 2012 8:53pm
Sherm Bloomer communicated the basic fact that all the budgetary changes accompanying the conversion of CLA from a departmental to a school structure have occurred and the CLA budget is within all University guidelines. Thus this proposal is “doing the paperwork after the fact.” However since this proposal may serve as a model for future proposals and may serve a reference to judge the success of the conversion, it is thought to be important that the proposal correctly reflect what is happening.

The BFP group recommended the proposal be returned to the proposers for the following changes:

1. The formation of the School of Public Policy has been approved in a separate Category I proposal that discussed the budgetary aspects of the conversion of the three departments into a School. This proposal was approved by the Faculty Senate, the OSU administration and the OUS. We request that the current proposal just refer to the conversion of the remaining departments into five Schools.
2. Despite the assurance of the Director of Budgets that the overall estimate of a savings of $111,500 in the first year of the proposal is reasonable, the Committee would like to see a more detailed accounting of that savings. Specifically in the Budget Outline forms, we would like to see how many people were given lower compensation and how much this salary loss was. These savings could be listed in Column E of the Budget Outline Forms with a re-labeling of the forms. (The narrative (p17, 30-31) and the Budget Outline Forms should contain the same information).
3. We have been advised that another Associate Dean was appointed for the College to administer the new structure. Is this true and was this expense included in the budget?
4. With the various administrative changes, was there any change in the number of course offerings, frequency of offering, etc. by the College?
5. In a nitpicking comment, if the proposal does not include the School of Public Policy (and the associated departments), what is the correct number of affected departments and schools? (We see various differing estimates of this number in the charts, narrative and comments.)

As per the email discussion between the BFP and the originators of the proposal, we make the following replies to the BFP comments:
1) We have modified the proposal and the budgets to reflect just the five schools under consideration. We do mention Public Policy on p. 11 as suggested by Kate Hunter-Zaworski, but make it clear that only the five schools are part of this proposal.
2) No one had their salary scale lowered as a result of reorganization. Chairs that returned to full faculty status had their salaries converted from a full-year 12-month administrative appointment that included a $5,000 chair stipend to a regular nine-month appointment, but in every case the conversation was made from a pre-existing salary rate that remained the same as it was prior to the administrative appointment (plus a percentage that included all appropriate raises).
3) CLA previously had one full-time Associate Dean. For the past two years, it has had two part-time associate deans (one on a 1039 appointment). Neither position involves administering the new structure.
4) There have not been any changes in the number of course offerings, frequency of offerings, etc., due to the reorganization.
5) We've rewritten the proposal to reflect that fact that ten departments and two programs are involved in the merger.

This proposal is essentially approved. However we request some changes to 'clean-up" the proposal. On p 16, please change the narrative to indicate a savings of $15,750 rather than $111,500. On p25 the narrative states that no inflation was added to the budget. On p26, the narrative describes the inflation factor that was used and budget pages seem to show inflation. We suggest correcting p25. Most importantly please re-label Col E of the Budget Outline Forms to indicate "savings due to ...", add the savings into this column and adjust the totals in Col F to show the net expense, ie, the 15K$. This proposal will then be automatically approved with these changes
