Budget - Review of last week's budget presentation –
De Anza’s budget reduction proposal of $4.5 million is still due to the Board by November 1, 2020. Espinosa-Pieb announced this is not a structural deficit as has been the case in previous budget cuts. This reduction is dependent on the state revenue uncertainty. Thus, one-time funds may be used to reach this target. The current proposal includes 2019-20 carry forward funds, capital outlay, expense transfers to grants/categorical, salary savings from unfilled positions, etc. Categorical funds such as Guided Pathways, CCCCO COVID-19 funds, Strong workforce Program, are restricted and are not considered as reduction sources.
Mary offered that the reduction proposal is merely proof that the College does have the funds to cover a $4.5 million budget reduction. However, the funds listed can be swapped out with others once we know that there actually will be cuts and the exact total amount.
Fund 400 amounts suggested are budgeted items that can instead be paid for from Bond measure funds.
Fund 15 contains a $150,000 account where the need has disappeared. There are many other Fund 15 accounts that have not been used for three to five or more years.
B Budget amount was calculated as the annual budgeted amount minus the average actually used in the last three years.
1320 budgeted amount includes both part-time faculty and overloads for full-time faculty.
If the budget for reassigned/release time for faculty was reduced, then the work would need to be done by others such as administrators.
The exact number of unfilled positions is not known at this time but it is highly likely that there will be more than one.
No filled positions would be eliminated.
All PBTs will be revisiting and revising this budget scenario.
Espinosa-Pieb proposed to the committee that as IPBT we might agree we will go with this College-wide plan understanding that the members of the IPBT would change the sources for the reduction.
She stressed that as IPBT we would take the time to set reduction criteria, update process for prioritizing faculty positions to be filled, and revision our shared governance structure.
Some concerns arose about the reductions including:
- While we are looking at numbers, we do need to be concerned because they do equal people, work, support services, and number of classes offered to our students, etc. Of particular concern is the cut to 1320 funds which would translate to 40 or more classes not being offered and the effect of that on students and faculty.
- We need to make sure we still align with our mission, values, equity goals, etc.
The two colleges are working together and more planning would take place during the year regarding possible budget reductions if needed. This proposed scenario is just a starting point. The PBTs can go back and adjust or change any of the numbers in the current proposal at a later date and come up with alternate proposals. The reductions would only go into effect if we absolutely had to.
Members of the IPBT are encouraged to take the proposal back to their constituents. This budget item will be considered at our next meeting.
