Members present: Sue Percival, Chair, Clayton Hutchinson, Don Maynard, Peter Hansen, Karen
Koch, David Wofford, Bill Mahan
Report on the Budget Summit in Apopka. Stakeholders, faculty, unit heads, and administration
attended the summit. The general feeling regarding the meeting was that it was an excellent
informative session for the stakeholders. Dr. Martin handed out the IFAS budget requests to the
FAC that he gave out at the summit. Also handed out was a document on under-funded
maintenance from around the state. The revenue forecast will be out around early March and the
session adjourns on March 22.
Incentives to retire were discussed. A plan to encourage county faculty on federal retirement was
discussed and a suggestion was made how to encourage the DROP enrollees as well.
A second draft of the faculty relocation guidelines is almost completed. Suggestions made by the
FAC have been incorporated and we will get a chance to review the draft very soon.
The campus restructuring committee has met. The three subcommittees have developed a
questionnaire to be completed by the Administration of the respective colleges. Dr. Martin will
provide that questionnaire to the FAC.
The internal review of the RECs will be posted on the web.
The committee to examine IFAS campus restructuring has been formed and will be chaired by
Doug Archer and Mary Duryea. A complete list of the committee will also be forthcoming.
Additional agenda items for the spring meetings were discussed after Dr. Martin left. Several
items were presented and include asking for the current philosophy on outside activities, an
understanding of the activities of the Research Office of IFAS, an understanding of the status of
Resident Instruction, and concerns regarding the administration's philosophy on support staff.
