Internal Budget Document – FY 2013-14

Get Acrobat Reader

As is our practice here at California State University, Long Beach, we are providing access to the campus’s General Fund budget allocations, including salary data for our current fiscal year, 2013-14. This Internal Budget document also presents budgets for the College of Continuing and Professional Education, Housing, Student Health Center Facility Fee, Parking, and Lottery funds.

After several consecutive years of substantial reductions to the California State University budget, 2013-14 brings some budget stability. For the first time in recent memory, we began the academic year with a budget that is stable and modestly improving.

The governor’s 2013-14 budget invests new, discretionary General Fund resources in higher education including the CSU. The CSU received $125 million to replace lost revenue from the student fee rollback in Fall 2012 and another $125 million in additional funding. Some of this additional funding is for mandatory cost increases such as healthcare and enrollment increases. Also included in this additional funding is an overall employee compensation pool of approximately 1.3% and some funds set aside by the Chancellor’s Office for technology enhanced learning, student advising and course redesign to improve access to classes and students’ progress to degree. Because details regarding the allocation of employee compensation pool funding and the technology learning and student success programs are still being developed, funding for these items are not included in the FY 2013-14 Internal Budget Document. However, preliminary indications are that CSULB will receive nearly $1.6 million for technology enhanced learning, student advising, and course redesign due to strong proposals submitted by the campus to the Chancellor’s Office.

CSULB’s share of the available discretionary funding was approximately $4.4 million. A total of $3.4 million was allocated on a pro rata basis to the divisions to fund operational requirements. The remaining $1.0 million was allocated to address campus high priority needs across the divisions. A more complete description of the allocation of this $4.4 million can be found in the 2013-14 Resource Planning Process report that can be found at http://daf.csulb.edu/offices/univ_svcs/budget/docs/rpp13-14/index.html.

The modest increase received by CSULB does not fully restore the substantial loss of state appropriation experienced over the past several years. However, the current budget outlook places us on a stable footing with modest positive expectations for the future. We hope Californians believe higher education needs to be a state priority once again and will assure the CSU receives an increase in state support in the next budget cycle and beyond.

Due to budget constraints and in the interest of sustainability, we no longer print and distribute hundreds of hard copies of the Internal Budget Document. Three copies of the entire document are available at the University Library Reserve. As in prior years, the printed Internal Budget Document contains division and department budget information and allocations as well as individual position and salary information. Please note that the individual position and salary pages reflect employee salaries on October 1, 2013. The salaries in the document do not reflect the approximate 1.3% compensation increase because the collective bargaining process was not completed nor the distribution of compensation dollars to campus made before the production of this report.

The division summary pages and department budget allocations are posted on the university website at http://daf.csulb.edu/offices/univ_svcs/budget/docs/index.html or may be accessed by going to the Budget Central website on the university home page. The summary pages of the document contain each division’s prior year-end balance (carryover) as well as base budget data for 2013-14.

The production of this comprehensive report requires a significant effort and I want to thank all of those involved for their contributions. Questions regarding this document may be directed to the Office of Budget Management at extension 5-4799.
