Council of Ontario Universities, Toronto. Research Div.
Results of an annual survey provide an analysis of physical plant costs by major functional area and object of expense, as reported in each university's operating fund. The principles observed in reporting, definitions, and explanatory comments on the cost categories and their scopes precede a series of summary tables for: total and percentage plant operating expenses by function and object of expense for the fiscal year ended April 30, 1982; total and percentage expenses by function and institution; total and percentage expenses by object of expense and institution; breakdown of utilities and "other" expenses by institution; gross square feet and utility rates by institution; and unit costs of operating expenses by institution in dollars per square foot. The function categories include physical plant administration, building maintenance, custodial services, utilities, landscape and grounds maintenance, and security and traffic. The "object of expense" categories include salaries and wages other than those used for administration of safety programs, employee benefits, library acquisitions, equipment and furniture (purchase, rental, and maintenance), operational supplies and expenses, cost of goods sold, utilities, property taxes, renovations and alterations, externally contracted services, scholarships and other aid, principal and interest repayment, land and site services, buildings, miscellaneous, and internal cost allocation.
