To the Campus Community,
Late this afternoon, we received further budget guidance for the remainder
of the 2008-09 fiscal year from the North Carolina Office of State Budget
and Management (OSBM). Although the State continues to authorize allotments
for payroll and other compulsory categories, State budgets have been put
under even more stringent restrictions as of today. These measures have been
taken to ensure that the State has a balanced budget on June 30, 2009.
The complete text of OSBM's two-page memo, Additional Fiscal Year 2008-09
Budget Management Restrictions, may be found at:

So that each of us might have the most up-to-date information on this
important topic, we are scheduling an All Campus Meeting for next week. We
will notify you as soon as we know the time and location of the All Campus
In the meantime, if you have questions about the status of specific budget
issues, please consult with your manager or Vice Chancellor. In addition,
questions related to specific purchases can be directed to Brenda McKinney
in the Finance Office at ext. 4999, and questions related to employment
vacancies or salaries can be directed to Lisa Honeycutt in the Human
Resources Office at ext. 5114.
