Creating a University System for the 21st Century. Analysis of 2009-2011 Legislative Appropriation
North Dakota University System
The 2009-11 state general fund appropriation is $597.9 million for the eleven campuses, University of North Dakota (UND) School of Medicine and Health Sciences (SMHS), Forest Service and North Dakota University System Office, which is an increase of $153.4 million over the 2007-09 adjusted appropriation, less 07-09 one-time funding. This includes funding provided in the following bills: $593.3 million in SB2003 (primary higher education bill); $1 million in SB2018 (Department of Commerce) for workforce enhancement fund, to assist the two-year colleges to respond to business and industry workforce training; $3 million in SB2019 (State Board for Career and Technical Education[CTE]) for the workforce training quadrants at Bismarck State College (BSC), Lake Region State College (LRSC), Williston State College (WSC) and North Dakota State College of Science (NDSCS); $200,000 in SB2155 to the North Dakota (ND) School for the Deaf for grants to North Dakota University System (NDUS) institutions for services to hard of hearing students; and $369,900 in SB2412 to the Department of Health for a grant to the ND Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Center at SMHS. Of the $153.4 million increase, $91.7 million is base funding (an increase of 20.6% over the 2007-09 adjusted appropriation), $22.7 million is for one-time deferred maintenance and other specific projects and the remaining $39 million increase is for major capital projects at the eleven campuses and the State Forest Service. The 2009-11 state general fund appropriation for the Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute (UGPTI), Northern Crops Institute (NCI), Extension Service and Research Stations, is $97.4 million, and increase of $29.8 million over the 2007-09 adjusted appropriation, less 07-09 one-time funding. Of the $29.8 million increase, $12.4 million is base funding (an 18.3% increase over the 2007-09 adjusted appropriation), $450,000 is for one-time deferred maintenance and the remaining $17 million one-time funding is for major capital projects. Thus, the total state general fund appropriation for all entities of the North Dakota University System (including major capital projects) for the 2009-11 biennium, is $695.3 million, an increase of $183.2 million more than the 2007-09 adjusted appropriation, less 07-09 one-time adjustments. In total, $104.1 million is base funding; $23.1 million is for one-time deferred maintenance and other specific projects and the remaining $56 million one-time funding is for major capital projects. An additional $16.2 million (UND Education-$11.2 and MiSU Swain-$5.0) from the Governor's flexible American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and $10.4 million ($5 million--WSC Virtual CTE and $5.4 million--UND SMHS Bismark Family Practice Center) from the permanent oil tax trust fund is provided for capital projects in SB2003. In addition, $500,000 from the Governor's flexible ARRA funds is provided to UND (HB2266) to support a simulation laboratory initiative.
