					                                               UNIT PLAN INSTRUCTIONS & TIPS
Overview
Each unit plan is made up of one excel workbook which has several worksheets.
       Identification – enter basic information about the department/unit
       Main Unit Plan – enter the unit plan objectives, outcomes, types of resources requested, etc.
       Financial Resources – enter details of your financial requests
       IT Resources – enter the description and rationale for your IT request
       Facilities Resources - enter the description and rationale for your facilities request
You can switch from one worksheet to another using the tabs that show at the bottom of the screen. Some information is
automatically filled in from one worksheet to another so you don’t have to re-enter the same information – please note that you
can't add columns or merge cells. We have set it up this way as changing columns or merging cells will mess up the autofill
function.

Identification Worksheet Enter the following information:
      CSA: One of four College Service Areas identified by the title of the President or Vice President – Student Services,
      Instruction, Administrative Services, and President’s Office. (Use the drop down box)
      Division (Use the drop down box)
      Department/Unit (Use the drop down box)
      Contact person: name, phone number and email (typically this will be the department chair)
      Date/revision date: It’s useful to change this each time you revise the unit plan so that you can keep track of what version is
      the most recent.
      Planning year: This has been filled in for you. This is the year you are planning for; remember that in this year, we are
      planning for next year’s work.
      Unit Mission: The mission of your department or unit is the main role or function(s) that the department or unit fills at the
      college. This should align with the overall Mission of the College. For example, an instructional department’s mission may
      include providing general education, basic skills development, degree or certificate courses, courses which develop specific
      job skills, etc. A student services unit may have a mission that includes specific types of support for student learning, the use
      of data to improve the success of students from diverse backgrounds, etc.

Main Unit Plan Worksheet Enter the following information:
     Identification: This information will automatically be filled in from the “Identification” worksheet.
     Enter the following information:
     Objective ID: Name each objective using the abbreviation for your unit and a number (e.g. PRIE-1, HIST-1, EOPS-1). Be
     careful to keep the same formatting for all objective IDs.
     Unit objective: A unit plan objective is a specific measurable action that you plan to accomplish over the year that the plan
     is implemented or over a few years including the planning year. If you have a multi-year objective, you’ll be asked to indicate
     the year you began working on the objective and the year you plan to complete the objective.
     Outcome measure: The outcome measure is the indicator that you have achieved the objective. When you’ve accomplished
     this, you know you’ve completed your objective.
     Multi-year plan: If you have a multi-year objective, you’ll be asked to indicate the year you began working on the objective
     and the year you plan to complete the objective. If you have a multi-year objective, use the drop down menus to show the
     start year and the end year for the objective.
     Resources required: There are several types of resources that you need to indicate in this set of boxes. These are labelled –
     Financial Resources, Facility Resources, IT Resources, Hire FT faculty, and Hire Classified. Put an X in the box for each type of
     resource that you are requesting. (This “X” is what triggers the autofill to the other worksheets.)
     Prioritization: These columns allow the priority assigned to each objective by the department and division to be recorded.
     The College Service Area (CSA) priorities will be filled in later.
     Type of change: The unit plan allows you to indicate some important types of actions:
     Curriculum changes such as modifying course outlines, adding pre-requisites, developing new courses, etc.
     Teaching method implementation such as different classroom practices, new teaching materials, use of supplementary
     instruction or tutors, etc.
     Administrative processes such as modifications to paperwork, data collection, staff processes, etc.
     Outreach to community outside of the college – work with high schools, transfer universities, local community groups,
     advisory boards, industry partners, etc.
     College Goals: Put an X in the box for each College Goal that is supported by the objective. If you place the cursor over the
     number of the goal, you will see the wording of the goal. You should check all of the goals with which an objective is aligned,
     but remember that there are no “bonus points” for checking off a large number of goals.
Financial Resources Worksheet Fill out the main unit plan worksheet before you do this one. On this worksheet you will enter
the details of your financial resource requests. The objID, objective, and outcome measures will automatically be filled in from
the main unit plan page for those objectives with financial resource requests (there will be some blank rows where objectives
didn't have financial resource requests; this is OK). Enter the details of your financial resource requests (columns with green
headers).
        Description: Briefly describe what financial resources will be needed and what they will be used to purchase.
       Rationale: Briefly describe how the financial resources will support the unit objective; i.e. why are the resources needed at
       this time.
       Nature of Request: Use the drop down menu to chose from the following: Maintenance of effort, New Initiative, or
       Emergent/urgent.
       General Funding Type: Indicate the general funding type(s) being requested; choose from the list shown below. You may
       enter more than one type of funding. (A pop up box will remind you of the list below)
              Continuing CDF base augmentation – request for an ongoing increase in the base budget for the unit. (Used for
              supplies, repairs, software, travel, student help, temporary classified staff, etc.)
              One time only (OTO) base augmentation – request for a one time only increase in the base budget for the unit.
              Continuing IR base augmentation – request for an ongoing increase in the “IR” monies used to support extensions of
              classroom instruction such as athletics, theatre, forensics, student newspaper, student-centered cultural activities,
              etc.
              Equipment – tangible property which can be used for a year or more and has a purchase price of over $200.
              VTEA funds – request for VTEA (Vocational and Technical Education Act) funding.
              Basic Skill Initiative funds
              Matriculation funds
              EOPS funds
              DSPS funds
              CalWORKS funds
              TANF funds
              Health Grant funds

              Postage
              Printing
              Rents & Leases
              Software
              Student Help
              Temporary Staffing
              Travel/Conference
       Hours or Quantity: Indicate the number of hours or quantity of the item requested.
       Unit Cost: Indicate the cost of one hour or one item.
       Total financial request for objective: Enter the total amount for the item - the combined total of what will be requested
       from the budget committee and what will come from other sources of funding. (Note: The entire amount may be
       requested from the budget committee).
       Amount requested from the Budget Committee: Enter the amount of financial resources that you are requesting from the
       Budget Committee. This may be less than the total financial request if the only part of the total cost is being requested
       from the Budget Committee.
       Grand total project cost = Financial + IT + Facilities: This column specifies the grand total of the project, including financial
       resources needed and the cost of the IT and/or facilities resources requested.

A note on long term financial commitments: If a resource request results in a long term resource commitment on the part of the
college this should be made clear at the meeting with IT and Facilities and should be part of the presentation provided to the
Budget Committee. If a resource request results in ongoing intermittent costs to the department/division (e.g. a software update
every three years) the department/division may work with the VPA to put aside a part of the money each year toward the coming
expenditure.
Facilities Resources Worksheet
Fill out the main unit plan worksheet before you do this one. The objID, objective, and outcome measures will automatically be
filled in from the main unit plan page for those objectives with facilities resource requests (there will be some blank rows where
objectives didn't have faciilities resource requests; this is OK). Enter the description and rationale for your facilities resource
request (columns with orange headers).

Description: Briefly describe what facilities resources will be needed and what they will be used to purchase.

Rationale: Briefly describe how the facilities resources will support the unit objective; i.e. why are the resources needed at this
time.

Facilities and the IT department will conduct a mandatory meeting in October for all departments which have objectives with
facilities or IT components. You may also want to schedule a meeting with the Facilities staff earlier in the process. They can help
you figure out how to meet your resource needs in the most effective way and avoid unnecessary costs.
