The special meeting of the Academic Budget & Planning Committee to discuss the restructure proposal was called to order by Chair Glantz on March 29, 2001 at about 1:00 p.m. in Room S318. A quorum was present.
- PROPOSED COMMITTEE RESTRUCTURE:
Chair Glantz and N. Agabian reported on their March 28, 2001 meeting with Bruce Spaulding, Vice Chancellor of University Advancement and Planning, regarding the proposal. He discussed UCSF’s 15-year plan and the Chancellor’s Long-Range Development Plan Amendment Committee, on which the Senate Chair sits and which will soon start meeting and assigning tasks to subcommittees. He noted as well that many currently active committees will fold into this LRDP Amendment Committee.
Committee members went on to discuss the March 21, 2001 revisions to the draft proposed restructure and suggested further edits. Edits included integrating the role of the Senate Chair on the LRDP Amendment Committee, and on the Executive Committee, into a mechanism that ensures AP&B involvement with subcommittees generated by these committees. The Committee wants to better define the long-term goal of this restructure and be clear that AP&B does not intend to inject delay into any established budget processes. The Committee also wants to be clear AP&B has no intent to micromanage Deans or other administrative heads of campus units. All agreed with the suggested revisions, and a new draft proposal reflecting these changes is to be distributed as soon as possible.
The Committee also discussed amendment of the AP&B bylaw, including increasing the membership of the Committee and changing the membership qualifications. The Committee agreed to state that the membership as a whole reflect should reflect UCSF’s broad spectrum of activities and geographical locations. The Committee discussed adding language that would allow other Senate committees to designate a formal liaison to AP&B. Any amendment needs to be finalized soon as the Committee on Committees is currently in the process of appointing Committee members for the next academic year.
The meeting adjourned at about 2:30 p.m.
