Vice-President Chambers convened the meeting at 3:10.
Minutes of April 25, 2000 meeting were reviewed and approved.
A request was made for a review of summer meeting times for IPC.
Roy Bergstrom presented the FY2001 Dental School Budget (distributed prior to the meeting). It was noted that the budget does not reflect the Sept. salary increase (it is based on salary increases being effective January 2001.
Chambers noted that the VP’s have reviewed their 2nd tier requests for FY2001 and IPC discussion of this will take place at a subsequent meeting. Chambers reported that her priority listing for Student Life has not changed except for her support of the new ASOUP recycling proposal.
Borlik presented the proposal from ASUOP and SEA for a campus-wide recycling program. There was general support from the committee for the proposal however it was noted that the costs don’t add up and correct totals on the figures need to be supplied. There were questions about outsourcing the program and possible income from it as well. A request was made for the job description for the Physical Plant staff person involved in the program. Questions were also asked about who will be responsible for the program and who will report on its progress.
Subcommittees are still working on these.
HR: Questions were asked about the salary impacts of reclassification: what is the total cost to bring staff to market rates for salary?
Physical Plant: What is the planning process for determining maintenance priorities? IPC should recommend a process for this. Are buildings not on the 5 year schedule presented by Joe Kirim being maintained? How is $200K of non-committed $ spent?
Meeting was adjourned at 4:30 PM
