Cheu presented an update on the general fund. She reviewed the projected vs. actual balances of the college approved FY15/16 standardization plan. The college spent $93,807 less than projected. Cheu then reviewed the effect the aforementioned FY15/16 standardization plan had on the FY15/16 carryforward balance. The actual FY15/16 carryforward was $3,790,207 which was $1,015,497 over the projected amount of $2,774,710. The additional money could be mainly attributed to unfilled positions (FLOAT). Cheu shared the college's FY16/17 rationale of using one-time carryforward balance to meet the needs of our students. This rationale was reflected in the requests for an additional $603,000 in B budget funding to be split between thirteen areas and a personnel request for one custodian II position. Cheu concluded the presentation by reviewing the FY16/17 forecast with the additional expenses included. A five-year forecast of ending fund balances reflected a positive ending fund balance through FY17/18 after which the ending fund balance would turn negative.
