    Allocations and RecommendationsIPBT Funding Source Guideline Sheet

    As a shared governance body the IPBT makes recommendations to College Council for final decision by President Holmes.

    Funding sources IPBT makes recommendations on are Enhanced Lottery Dollars, Instructional Equipment, Strong Workforce Program (CTE – Career Technical Education programs only), and Perkins Funds (CTE programs only). These are State funds except for Perkins which is Federal. Each fund has its own set of restrictions, guidelines and limitations that IPBT must follow. Strong Workforce and Perkins funds need to be allocated and spent by December 31st each year or the monies go back to the State. Instructional Equipment and Enhanced Lottery rollover each year but IPBT strives to allocate available monies by the end of each academic year.

    In addition, IPBT makes decisions on prioritization of Faculty Hiring Requests.

    Past IPBT Decision MakingFunding Sources and Criteria Used

    Mary Pape gave an overview on IPBT’s past practice in regards to data used for decision making. Program Reviews documents are the framework for decision making. The team would break into small groups to examine the Program Reviews considering requests based on different data points. These data points included equity gap, enrollment trends, fill rate data, success rates, degrees/certificates, and SLO outcome assessments. Criteria for decision making is based on considering the request in respect to improving success rates, enrollment and closing the equity gap. Strengths are identified and questions for the department and division are developed.

    What has been discussed in the smaller groups is then shared out to the larger group.

    For resource requests, a spreadsheet with justifications and priority of request (critical, needed, desirable) is used.

    Budget reductions initiate viability process.

    When prioritization of hiring positions is discussed, the team ranks the departmental requests after studying quantitative data, justifications for hire on program review, and any extra justification submitted by Dean and/or Department Chair.

    Prior to decisions (faculty hires or resource allocations), Deans gave presentations on their requests to IPBT. In their presentations Deans answered IPBT’s questions.

    Now, this year, is an opportunity to talk and re-think what criteria the team has been using: what parts of the process do we keep and what changes do we make so that we change outcomes equity-minded. How do we apply an equity lens?

    The team was instructed to take some time to read and review the documents that are posted on IPBT website.

    IPBT voted and agreed to meet next week (November 24) to continue discussion of the allocation criteria.
