Budget Transparency

State of Michigan Transparency Reporting

From the funds appropriated in the Public Acts of 2018 Act #265, sections 236 and 245, each public university shall develop, post, and maintain, on a user-friendly and publicly accessible Internet site, a comprehensive report categorizing all institutional general fund expenditures made by the university within a fiscal year. The report shall include institutional general fund expenditure amounts categorized both by each academic unit, administrative unit, or external initiative within the university and by major expenditure category, including faculty and staff salaries and fringe benefits, facility-related costs, supplies and equipment, contracts, and transfers to and from other university funds.

The report shall also include a list of all employee positions funded partially or wholly through institutional general fund revenue that includes the position title, name, and annual salary or wage amount for each position.

The university shall not provide financial information on its website under this section if doing so would violate a federal or state law, rule, regulation, or guideline that establishes privacy or security standards applicable to that financial information.

Section 2H: Graduation Outcome Rates

Graduation outcome rates, including employment and continuing education

Many of the Michigan public universities do not routinely and systematically survey all their graduating seniors to gather data for a reliable response to this metric.  At present there is no common core set of questions and no consistent date for survey administration.  Depending on the institution and the timing, response rates may be low and also biased towards students who have been successful in either entering the workforce or a graduate program.  While institutions are making an effort to report the data that is available to them, care should be taken in interpreting the results.

Joint Capital Outlay Subcommittee (JCOS) Report

The State of Michigan requires that Michigan public universities post a report twice a year itemizing all contracts entered into for new construction of self-funded projects costing in excess of $1 million. New construction includes land or property acquisition, remodeling and additions, maintenance projects, roads, landscaping, equipment, telecommunications, utilities, and parking lots and structures.

There are no projects that meet the reporting requirements during this six-month period.
