Lee-Wheat distributed the handout, IPBT Integrated Resource Planning and Budgeting Discussion as a follow-up to the conversation of March 13. A discussion about funding projects to stimulate the SLOAC, PLOAC, AUOC and SSLOAC processes concluded with the following suggestions and questions by the IPBT members:
SSPBT model – What can we take from this model? SSPBT model - power point
Lee-Wheat displayed the SSPBT power point, Student Service Viability Review Process – Draft, explained and engaged the group in discussion. She asked the members to focus on three concepts based on the SSPBT model relative to resource allocation: grow, enhance and maintain. Wanda Lee explained that she has been attending the SSPBT meetings and defined the terms:
“growth” - referred to additional resources such as full-time positions, especially classified support persons to serve more students;
“enhance”- the program by making plans to reorganize or change may have an associated resource request to serve the same number of students;
“maintain” - keep processes and job tasks status quo, may have an associated resource request in order to maintain current service levels.
Key points that were highlighted in the model:
1) In the APRU or comprehensive program review the SSPBT programs would state that they plan to grow, enhance or maintain either within their existing budget or with a request for resources;
2) The SSPBT would then make a recommendation to college council based on their review of the program’s request and program review document.
The discussion then centered on the SSPBT model and whether the IPBT could ask programs to make resource allocation plans with either a goal of Growth, Enhance, or Maintain. And upon conclusion of the program review process, whether the IPBT should follow-up with recommendations to college council too?
Is this a reasonable task for the group to embark on?
The members commented:
The discussion will continue.
