EXECUTIVE BUDGET SUMMARY
The spring 2005 legislative session enacted:
Compensation raise of 2% for Higher Ed employees
Increased employer’s contributions to the Educational Retirement Fund at the rate of .75% per year for the next
seven years taking the rate from the current 8.65% of pay to eventually 13.9% of pay by 2012. Employees will
also pay more out of their pockets for retirement with .075% a year increases for the next four years.
Funding for the science courses at the same level as the four year institutions for the same lower tier classes.
However, money was stripped from the bill for 05-06. It is expected to be funded in 06-07. This will mean about
$49,000 annually to UNM-Gallup down the road. The tuition credit was increased by 4.5% for all colleges and
universities in the state.
Our Nursing Special appropriation, a subsidy to help increase the Nursing students we can serve, was increased
by $900 to be $35,800 annually.
The outcome of all this is an increase in the state appropriations from current $8,459,900 to next year’s
$8,728,511, an increase of $268,611.
Other revenue gains were:
Student Senate endorsed the 9% tuition increase from $44 to $48 for residents and the increase from $92 to $125
for non-residents per credit hour.
They also endorsed the $10 per student per semester Technology fee to be implemented on this summer’s
Expected payment by the Extended University to Gallup of $50,000 annually for now. A study is underway to fix
the amount or some percentage likely higher than this in future years.
Local voters passed an additional 1 mill levy for our operational support along with continuance of 2 mills for debt
service. The 1 mill will provide about $465,000 annually in new operational support. It is only for six year’s unless
renewed by voters.
We plan to spend these revenues to:
Give a pay raise of 3.25% which is 1.25% above the state financed rate. This keeps us in step with UNM-
Albuquerque which did the same and should help keep us competitive for human resources. Cost with .75 benefit
increase is about $290,000.
Contract for a web site manager at about $20,000 annually.
Add New Positions for:
Science Lab Instructor Part-time $18,600
Admissions Office half-time Administrative Assistant $12,000
Library half-time Assistant $12,000
Grants and Contracts Office half-time Administrative Assistant $12,000
Increase a Physical Plant position from three quarter to full-time $5,575
Increase in Professional Liability and Property Insurance by $6,052
Increase for Utilities $13,500
Increased Information Technology supplies and equipment based on the new Technology fee $40,000.
