RRC Summary -- 4/22/2011

Below and attached are notes from the April 22 RRC meeting.

Budget:  It is unclear whether the legislature and
Governor will come to a budget agreement prior to the start of the fiscal year,
which raises the possibility of a state government shutdown.  The University would not feel a government
shutdown like state agencies would, because the University has cash balances
and revenue sources other than state appropriations.  The University could cash flow to meet
payroll and other necessary expenses during a brief government shutdown.                 

Cost share functions:  Implementation of the mandate to bring
program-project functions into alignment on cost share strings has been delayed

Kudos to central for reexamining this issue and a
willingness to explore other alternatives.

Use and Lease of Real
The Use and Lease of Real
Estate Policy has been updated (attached).

eProcurement system that would provide a single, shopping cart style system for
all University supply purchases.  There

opportunities coming up for users to provide input.

tuition in FY12.  This will not impact CSE
departments significantly, because all tuition and UFee revenue comes to the
