Most of midyear reversion to be absorbed centrally
April 19, 2018
About 75 percent -- nearly $4 million -- of Iowa State's fourth-quarter budget cut will be absorbed centrally through one-time savings, President Wendy Wintersteen told the state Board of Regents at its April 12 meeting in Council Bluffs. Key strategies include using one-time, nonrecurring funds; leaving vacant positions (primarily in the university services division) unfilled through June 30; and investing in fewer campus facilities needs as they arise.

Iowa State's general fund operating budget for the fiscal year that began July 1 includes net incremental revenue of $14.2 million. This includes $26 million in additional tuition and $1.5 million more in indirect cost recoveries on sponsored research, offset by $13.3 million less in state operating appropriations than a year ago. The loss in state support amounts to about a 5.5 percent reduction from a year ago.

In Gov. Terry Branstad's revised state budget recommendations for the fiscal year that begins on July 1, Iowa State would receive $4.5 million less in state support. This is in addition to the $8.9 million in mid-year cuts made to the general university appropriation this winter, which permanently lowered Iowa State's base education appropriation.
