Changes in UO expenditure authorizations from 2014 to 2020 budgets

Note: These data are from https://transparency.uoregon.edu/ They show authorized expenditures – not actual expenditures. For example, the Law School is authorised to spend $10.8M this year, they probably spent more that $18M.

I’ve sorted these by the $ change from 2013-2014 to the 2019-2020 AY. Changes in accounting mean that direct comparisons should be done with care. My quick takeaway is that most of the units getting large increases are administrative units – not academic units.

Comments and interpretation welcome.

    Nice to be continually reminded how much JH really, really,
    loves CAS ….

    • honest Uncle Bernie says:

      Yes, a 4% cut when other outfits were getting 40% or so boosts. I had no idea. What is the explanation or justification for this? Did enrollments shift that much? It has been going on for 6 years, why is it not known by everyone? It cries out for an explanation.

      • Dog says:

        One of the decent things about Marcus is that, as CAS dean, he actually tried to fight this continual cuts – not very effective however.

        My guess, CAS employs the lion share’s of NTTF and a good way
        to shrink those numbers (so the TTF/NTTF ratio looks better on paper compared to other AAUs) is to reduce CAS budget.

        Yes its all unenlightened bullshit …

        • honest Uncle Bernie says:

          Could be. It needs an official investigation/explanation. A job for the UO senate. A great project for the Emerald! Maybe it’s “just” sinking enrollments? Well that would be news too. My guess: siphoning off money for other stuff, law school, advisors, diversicrats … Is there a benign explanation?

          Thanks to UOM for exposing this.

        • anon3456 says:

          and Marcus ended up resigning.

  2. New Year Cat says:

    And the library! At least it is only 0% and not negative….

    • anon and on and on says:

      Are these figures adjusted for inflation? I don’t think they are. (Official word, UOM?) Besides, with the total cost of recurring subscriptions to pubs and resources rapidly climbing (at least in my discipline), even keeping pace with inflation could be a net loss in terms of real resources despite the heroic efforts of our overstretched Library staff. Only they could say for sure, but it’s looked like a loss from here in the humanities.

  3. ODA says:

    UO’s very own police force was to cost less than the contract we had with EPD… 7.6 million a year?

  4. ODA says:

    Can someone in the know explain Business Affairs change?

    • angelena says:

      That is due to the fact that UO now handles its own treasury (now that OUS is no more, and UO is its own legal entity).

      • uomatters says:

        Aaah, thank you for explaining that!

      • Anonymous says:

        and OUS still existed back in 2014?

      • ODA says:

        Thank you.

        I am not an accountant but that shows an expense. Why is that so high? Where does the money go? If it is an operating expense, where was it in the OUS budget, was it that high, and now do all 7 schools have this expense? I think In the old OUS Factbook, the Chancellor’s Office total budget was $11M, so is this debt service?

  5. BAO wow says:

    whoa, what did Business Affairs Office absorb for an increase of $84M???

  6. Leporillo says:

    Under normal circumstances I might suggest the University Auditor investigate the Business Affairs Office, but there may be a conflict of interest in this case.
