Fiscal Year (FY) 2020-2021 Operating Budget and Equipment Request – Strategic Planning

Chad Campbell, President

For your information and review is a copy of the preliminary FY 2020-2021 Operating Budget (Building Blocks) and Equipment Request. This draft list is a compilation of the budget needs and represents the current and immediate priorities of the College. The budget is based on input from the Strategic Planning process, departmental advisory committees, instructional departments, and administrative analysis. Some “trimming” of this list may occur by the Commissioner’s Office or the Board of Trustees, but it represents the best analysis of business and industry demand in relationship to the College’s ability to implement the request during the coming months. This request will be forwarded on to the Governor’s Office of Planning and Budget and to the Office of the Legislative Fiscal Analyst on its way to consideration during the next General Session of the Utah State Legislature. Discussions of the appropriate size or amount of the request are in progress with the Utah System of Technical Colleges’ (UTech) Commissioner and Presidents’ Cabinet.

ACTION: Recommend approval of the FY 2020-2021 Operating Budget and Equipment Request.
