California State University, Long Beach 2008-2009 Resource Planning Process

Resources and Requirements Plan

Explanatory Notes

The 2008-09 Resources and Requirements Plan estimates the impact of budget decisions made by the State, by the CSU System Office, and the Long Beach campus on the resource allocations for the upcoming year. The plan is based on the Governor's January Budget and the CSU Budget letter B08-02. The plan does not include any changes that could occur with the legislative proceedings that take place before the final budget is passed. The plan presents permanent and temporary allocations that comprise this year’s budget strategy.

The following notes provide an explanation of the numbers shown on the plan. Other related notes and recommendations on the budget strategy and selected topics can be found in the sections following this plan.


2007-08 General Fund Base Budget

Net state support and budgeted revenues and reimbursements detailed in the 2007-08 CSULB Internal Budget Document.

2007-08 Net State Support $205,079,790
Represents that portion of the University's state budget supported by tax revenues.

2007-08 Revenues & Reimbursements

State University Fee $97,163,707
Represents that portion of the University's budget supported by undergraduate, teacher credential and graduate student fees.
Other Receipts $22,384,988
Represents the portion of the University's budget comprised of fees and miscellaneous reimbursements for services. Examples include student health center fee, application fee, non- resident tuition, transcript fees, etc.
Interest Income From State University Fee Revenues $463,000
The campus is now authorized to deposit and manage student fee revenue in local trust accounts and retain most of the interest income that is generated. In order to keep this revenue shift neutral to the state, an annual payment to the state will be made for lost interest income. Despite this payment to the state, the campus was confident that the total interest income would be sufficient enough to permanently pledge this amount to the campus base budget.
Temporary Resources $8,725,295
The campus has accumulated sufficient reserves for a temporary bridge until permanent funds become available. The campus was comfortable pledging this amount of temporary resources in order to fund unforeseen costs.

Total 2007-08 Internal Budget $333,816,780

CSU Adjustments to the 2007-08 Base Budget<$1,075,000>

PERS Retirement – Rate Change <$693,000>
Changes to the 2007-08 budget to reflect the decreased cost of employer-paid contributions for employee retirement effective July 1, 2007. The adjustment by campus is based on budgeted General Fund salaries in the 2007-08 campus FIRMS Final Budget submissions. Long Beach’s share is 8.0% of the total decrease for the CSU.
New Space <$382,000>
Campus General Fund budgets are proportionately reduced to redirect funding to the campuses that have new space coming on-line during the fiscal year. CSULB is allocated $51,000 for new space but loses $433,000 per this redirection of funding.

Net Budget Plan General Fund Reduction <$7,033,200>

The net 2008-09 decrease in the campus’s General Fund allocation is based on CSU budget allocations detailed in the CSU system coded memorandum B08-02 on the 2008-09 Governor’s Budget Allocations.
State University Fee Income $12,398,575

CSULB expects a total of $109,562,282 to be collected in State University Fee (SUF) revenue in 2008-09. This is an increase of $12,398,575 over the 2007-08 budget. The increase has two components:

  • Enrollment beyond budgeted target of approximately 1,200 full-time equivalent students (FTES), generating approximately $4,400,000 or 35% of the total expected SUF revenue increase.
  • A 10% rate increase for undergraduate, graduate, and credential students effective Fall 2008, generating $8,000,000, or 65% of the total expected SUF revenue increase.

This revenue projection is contingent on achieving an official 2008-09 college year enrollment of 30,570 FTES of which 1,200 FTES are expected during the 2008 summer sessions.
