General Budget Framework Document FY 2012 - Allocation of Reductions

IV. Allocation of Reductions to Divisions and Units of the University

The intention of this administration is to make strategic vertical reductions if significant cuts to the UNL budget are required. However, in order to make careful comparisons between alternatives, it is essential that each unit surface, in a confidential manner, a percentage of its budget for review. Necessarily, this percentage will be larger than the announced percent required for the overall university reduction because some categories of expenditures, such as utilities, insurance, opening of new buildings, and assessments are not available for reduction.

Vice Chancellors, Deans and Directors, have been working on different options over the course of the academic year.
