Standing Reports: Cavanaugh reviewed the budget as was discussed and considered by the Board.

Current Agenda Items:

Athletics Budget Presentation
King presented the Intercollegiate Athletics Budget Request for FY 2008. He provided a general synopsis of what they manage, what donations are generated annually and the re-allocation of salary dollars which made significant improvements with personnel. This year's requests in priority order are:

1. Graduate Assistant, Men's and Women's Swimming
2. Graduate Assistant, Human Performance
3. Operations Budget Increase

OIT Budget Presentation
Frederick presented a five-year strategy budget that is a draft and will change as needs arise. The report was broken down by the following categories:

1. Infrastructure
2. Academic Support
3. Administrative Excellence
4. Relationship Management

It was noted that data storage strategy is not on this report and is something to consider in upcoming years.

The priorities within the four mentioned above are 1.) Basic maintenance of our services and systems, 2.) Enhancing the security, reliability, legal compliance and features of what we have and 3.) Addressing new institutional needs involving additional systems and services.

Discussion of PR 15 Draft 7 and Community Forums
Gilbertson was pleased to say that the Board discussed and praised the planning work so far. No necessary changes or revisions and they voted unanimously in support of the document last week. The full board will review the same sections of the document in April.

Brodnick mentioned that this Thursday Academic Council will have a hearing of Draft 6 as an all faculty meeting. The main concern at this point is linking the strategic and on going technical planning. There are two options: 1.) Get more specific in our goal statements and have IPC revise those every few years or 2.) move more of the goal planning down to the units and create a bridge within the strategic planning document, allowing the units to do more active goal setting and planning through a yearly cycle. Brodnick will bring details on the two models to the committee for discussion in the near future. Next is how we are going to share with the community? It was suggested that IPC conduct 15-18 community meetings each moderated by an IPC member.

Next meeting: Tuesday, February 6th, 2007, 2 - 4 p.m. in the Library Community Room.

Meeting adjourned at 3:55 p.m.
