The Budget Office is in the process of providing all divisions the necessary materials for the development of the Fiscal Year 2020 Operating Budget. As divisions embark on this process, the focus needs to be on current, core operating budgets and the opportunity for re-engineering and reallocation within those budgets. As we enter into a new State biennium, we anticipate a high level of uncertainty within all State appropriation line items. Additionally, affordability of our academic programs needs to continue to be one of our highest priorities and guiding budgetary principles. Therefore, we don’t anticipate additional revenue as we head into this next budget cycle and may in fact face a decline in revenue. We ask that you keep this in mind as you focus on re-engineering and related saving opportunities for the Fiscal Year 2020 Operating Budget.
