Update July 2012: Summary

The operating budget for 2012-13 was presented last week to both the Cabinet and BRT. This new budget, which was approved by the Board of Trustees, ends the use of the campus allocation model and instead budgets personnel costs, fixed costs and variable costs based on recent trends and projected revenues.

To recap, in the past three years MCC has experienced a 12.5% reduction in state appropriations, a decrease in investment income and property tax revenue, and an increase in medical insurance costs. This past year, MCC’s enrollment has been on the decline, adding additional stress to the budget.

Over the last 3 years, the operating budget has been reduced by $18.8 million in core-cuts. Moving forward, we have taken on Zero-Based Budgeting, which will be implemented partially this year and in full by FY14.

Additional opportunities to run at maximum efficiency include:

  • Implementation of SEM – strategic plan to maximize recruiting, retaining, marketing, developing and helping students to complete their objectives
  • Utilize IWI in partnering with business and industries to create stackable credentials that bridge non-credit training to associate degrees and employment
  • Pursue additional opportunities to annex more school districts in our service area
  • Expand KC-Online
  • Create a strong fundraising strategy
  • Continue to develop brand awareness

Financial plan – what the numbers show us:

  • Enrollment is projected to decline 9.3%
  • Local tax revenue is forecasted to decline from $31.2 million to about $31 million
  • State aid is projected to decline about 8.4% (a drop of $2.5 million)
  • Tuition and fee revenue is projected to have a decline of 3.7%
  • Revenue from investment income is estimated at only $50,000 (just a few years ago, it contributed aprox $2.2 million)

The FY2012-13 budget includes $11.75 million in unallocated budget reductions that still need to be determined throughout the 12-13 academic year. There is also an $8.6 million fund transfer from the unexpended plant fund to the operating budget to finance the early retirement incentive payments. This gives a shortfall of $20.35 million ($11.75 which still needs to be found and $8.6 will come out of reserve).

The Board of Trustees indicated that the $11.75 million budget deficit needed to be addressed this fiscal year with updates presented when we bring the budget to them for approval in November and April.
