RE:                  FY19 Strategic Investment Allocations

This memorandum outlines my FY19 UAF strategic investment decisions. The final funding decisions were based on input from the UAF planning and budget committee (PBC), core cabinet, and the UA system office.

Major investment themes align with the Board of Regents’ (BOR) priorities: Economic Development, Skilled Workforce Development, Research, and Enrollment/Degree Attainment. An important criterion in the selection of initiatives for funding is the potential for high return on investment in increased enrollment or external research funding. The allocations are from three different funding sources: one-time funds from UAF’s FY18 central unreserved fund balance (UFB); three-year funds allocated to UAF by President Johnsen from a UA system internal initiative pool; and UAF’s allocation of new base general funds (GF) allocated to UA in the FY19 state operating budget.

UAF Financial Services will distribute/set-up the funding for the investments listed below. If you have questions, please contact me.
