Ed board needs to deal with deficit - Bismark Tribune

The State Board of Higher Education must decide how to deal with a deficit in the North Dakota University System office budget. They have options. Interim chancellor Larry Skogen suggested the board could utilize carry-over dollars, ask the interim Budget Section for $1 million in contingency funding in the NDUS budget bill passed this session or reduce staff and operations. The board faces a a projected budget deficit of between $250,000 and $300,000, according to Skogen. House Bill 1003, the University System budget, contains a system office operating budget of $8 million. NDUS also has approximately $134.6 million in its budget for various programs. The Tribune feels the best option is reducing staff and operations and create other operating efficiencies.
