1) Approval of Notes October 7, 2008

The notes were approved.

2) First Quarter Report

The first quarter report is published and is available at Vice President Hawk's office.

3) Mid-Year Cuts

Hawk reviewed and explained a presentation from Vice Chancellor Dunn named Budget Update - All Administrators & Supervisors Meeting October 29, 2008.

Hawk also explained additional details regarding the possible impact to the De Anza college budget. This information was shared with the College in Hawk's PowerPoint presentation at the December 8, 2008 budget town hall.

Hawk advised the group that the Board had requested that each college present their strategies for addressing the budget crisis at the January 20, 2009 Board meeting. These strategies should be non-negotiated solutions. She asked the team to consider what solutions the group would like to present to College Council for review. The team discussed the following ideas:

  • Targeted budget reductions per Vice President's area according to the percent of the total budget.
  • Unfilled positions
  • Full time faculty obligation (FTFO)
  • Moving costs from general fund to categoricals
  • Assistance from self support (fund 15) programs
  • Analysis of Print Shop
  • Retirement incentives / golden handshakes
  • DASB funding opportunities
  • Reduced B budget spending/using good judgment with ProCard spending
  • Fund raising/foundation support

A continuation of this discussion and the adoption of recommendations to present to College Council would be the agenda for the next CBT meeting on December 9, 2009.

4) Burning Issues

Bloom noted that in answer to a question the Classified Senate had briefly discussed across-the-board reductions but that this was a negotiated item. Hawk stated that dialog within the areas was important and encouraged the members to advise their constituents that work is beginning on budget reductions and to ensure that each of their groups have an opportunity to bring forward ideas.

DASB froze their budget. They have $65k left for special allocations for the rest of the year. They will reopen the process in late January early February.

There is a budget town hall on Monday December 8, 2008 at 11:30 a.m. in Conf. Room A at the Campus Center.

Present: Argyriou, Bloom, Hawk, Larson, Michaelis, Menon (DASB).
