Cuts in all departments in the College of Engineering:
- All non-protected State-supplied budgets will receive a PERMANENT, one-time cut of 27%. It is unclear if there will be additional budget cuts in future fiscal years. This means that the total staff salary budget will be cut 27%. This comes as an additional cut on the 8% salary reduction. The total Department operating funds will be cut 27% and effectively wiped out. Supplies budget will be cut 27%. Everything, absolutely every state funding line the ME Department has (except the faculty salary line) will be subject to this 27% permanent cut.
- All funds that are carried forward will be subject to a 4.6% tax each year. The definition of “carry forward” extends to all funds unspent in one fiscal year and transferred to the next fiscal year.
