The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its' Meeting #50 on 
May 18,1994:


RESOLUTION
===========

Whereas the Board of Regents is considering changes to the 
	University Policy on financial exigency; and

Whereas the Statewide Administration of the University of Alaska 
	has requested governance groups' responses to suggested 
	changes; and

Whereas financial exigency is an extremely serious step, implying a 
	financial emergency beyond the capacity of the administration 
	to handle without seriously undermining the mission and 
	quality of the university; and

Whereas all units of the University of Alaska are heavily dependent 
	on lump-sum general appropriations by the Alaska State 
	Legislature;

Therefore Be It Resolved, That the UAF Faculty Senate urges the 
	Board of Regents to reserve the declaration of financial 
	exigency to the entire UA system.

The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its' Meeting #50 on 
May 18,1994:


	A RESOLUTION OF THE UAF FACULTY SENATE AND
	THE STATEWIDE ALLIANCE OF FACULTY SENATES


The Alliance of Faculty Senates asks the Board of Regents to direct 
participation by the UA Statewide System (hereafter Statewide) in 
Program Assessment according to the criteria enumerated below.

We ask that the UA Faculty Senates, and other governance units, 
participate in reviewing criteria for Program Assessment for non-
academic units that are part of the UA system.

We ask that the Board of Regents convene a committee chaired by Dr. 
T. Gaylord (UAF), and consisting of faculty and the UAF, UAA and UAS 
heads of institutional research/fiscal analysis. The function of this 
committee should be to review the data provided by Statewide for 
Program Assessment.

We request that the Statewide administration provide information 
on cost-savings effected over the past five years. We recognize that 
the Kaludis Report was completed just a few years ago, and that the 
most crucial cost-savings are likely to have been only recently 
implemented. However, we feel that the history over the past five 
years is essential for fairly assessing all Statewide programs.

We request that Statewide programs be defined as small as is 
feasible, to facilitate ascertaining the acuity of each program. 
Below is a listing of divisions within Statewide that are, according 
to our incomplete information, consistent with our definition of 
small scale programs. This listing is meant to be illustrative and 
not inclusive.

General Council     				UACN Technical Services
General Services/Payroll      			UACN Telecomm/Networking
Government/University Relations   		UACN ATN
Human Resources    				Vocational/Tech. Education

We request that each Statewide program provide specific 
information.

1.	Personnel information: The programs should list employees, 
	their rank and job descriptions. These should equal the total of 
	all the personnel employed by Statewide. The data should be 
	current, for FY94. To facilitate comparisons and evaluation of 
	cost-saving measures implemented over the past five years, 
	we request that the program submit complete personnel 
	information for FY89. In the event that the program was not 
	extant in FY89, we ask for this information from as early a 
	date as is possible.

2.	Fiscal information: The programs should provide data to 
	address how Alaska state monies (Fund I minus overhead), and 
	any overhead monies are spent. This should include all 
	revenues, assets, expenses, and liabilities for each program. 
	The sum of all fiscal data for Statewide programs should equal 
	the sums of revenues, assets, expenses, and liabilities for 
	Statewide in toto. Data should be current, for FY94. To 
	facilitate comparisons, particularly with regard to cost-
	saving measures that have been implemented, full financial 
	information for FY89 should also be included. In the event that 
	the program was not extant in FY89, we ask for this 
	information from as early a date as is possible.

3.	A Cost-Benefit Analysis: This should be current, for FY94.  If 
	available, a cost-benefit analysis for FY89 should also be 
	included. In the event that the program was not extant in FY89, 
	we ask for this information from as early a date as is possible.

4.	Implemented of cost-saving measures: We want to know what 
	cost-saving measures have been implemented over the past 5 
	years, and how successful they have been. In the event that the 
	program was not extant in FY89, we ask for this information 
	from as early a date as is possible.

5.	Self assessment: Each program should provide a self 
	assessment indicating their function; their successes and 
	failures over the past fiscal year (FY94), and over the past five 
	years (since FY89). If applicable, this should include a listing 
	of all formal reports produced. In the event that the program 
	was not extant in FY89, we ask for this information from as 
	early a date as is possible. In this section, programs should 
	indicate if they are mandated because of federal regulations, 
	state regulations, or if they are not so mandated.

6.	Ancillary or corroborative information: Any data deemed 
	pertinent to a cogent judgment of the cost-benefit of the 
	program should be appended. This might consist of 
	implementation of management programs such as TQM, etc.


	RATIONALE: 	Alaska state budgets have been in decline for 
		several years. The University of Alaska is facing serious 
		shortfalls this year, and predictions for the future are 
		not optimistic. In this budget climate, it is important 
		that the University of Alaska assess the cost-benefit of 
		all of its programs.  Previously available criteria for a 
		University-wide Program Assessment are directed to 
		academic programs. However, much of the Alaska state 
		monies received by the University of Alaska are spent on 
		Statewide administration. It is prudent and fair to ask 
		for a cost-benefit analysis for all UA programs, not only 
		academic ones. With this resolution, we ask for the 
		information necessary to clarify how Alaska state 
		monies have been spent by the Statewide administration. 
		Our focus is the implementation of cost-saving measures 
		over the past five years. We believe five years is a 
		reasonable length of time to develop an overview. In 
		addition, State monies have been dwindling for academic 
		programs for the past four years.
