Update on fee revenues and FY 13 approved positions

The current status of the FY13 Board approved positions was presented.  

Follow-up conversation with Athletics 
The IPC requested that Leland respond to follow-up questions regarding the Athletics division's financial projections that were shared with the committee in November 2012. Leland shared NCAA Presidential Dashboards, as well the Athletics division's strategic plan action steps and the strategic plan financial model. Pacific's actual contributions to Athletics for FY10-FY12 and projections for FY13-FY17 were outlined. In the future, Athletics hopes to put more emphasis on selling tickets and pledged to reduce its dependence on subsidies from the University.

Status report regarding budget reallocation 
President Eibeck provided a confidential draft of the strategic reallocation plan. Two separate votes approved two motions:  (1) a motion to accept a smaller percent contribution from academics relevant to reallocation (not including non-academic entities within the Academic Affairs Division) and (2) a motion to allocate strategic initiative base adds in FY14 and FY15 in the amount of $500,000 for each of those years. 

Note regarding Motion 2:  The base adds of $500,000 in the next two fiscal years was made on the expectation that the reallocation target would be reduced to $13 million.
