University of North Dakota System could see 490 less positions in a 90-percent budget - DAVE THOMPSON, Prairie Public

Staff for the North Dakota University System have given the Board of Higher Education’s Budget and Finance Committee a first look at how the allotments, plus Gov. Jack Dalrymple’s request for 90 percent budgets for the upcoming two year period, will affect the System’s spending. System chief financial officer Tammy Dolan told the committee – when you take the 6 ½ percent allotments, plus another 3 ½ percent cut – to add up to 10 percent – it would mean a $49.5 million reduction for the 2017-2019 biennium. Dolan said the biggest area of spending is in personnel. "If you look at the count from the '15-'17 allotment, and the '17-'19 budget, it's about 490 positions," Dolan said. http://news.prairiepublic.org/post/university-system-could-see-490-less-positions-90-percent-budget
