TSUS Regents to Consider ASU 2006-07 Operating Budget
Regents of the Texas State University System (TSUS) will consider adopting a $68.7 million operating budget and approving an energy-saving plan for Angelo State University during the boards regular meeting Thursday and Friday, Aug. 17-18, in Austin.
Meetings will begin at 8:30 a.m. Thursday and 8 a.m. Friday in the Radisson Hotel in Austin.
The budget, totaling $68,744,198, will shape the universitys programs for the 2006-07 fiscal year that begins Sept. 1. The energy-saving plan will be considered in a performance contract agreement with TAC Americas, Inc., to implement findings of an energy audit in an effort to reduce the universitys electrical, gas, water and sewer costs.
In other matters the board will consider establishing a new department in the College of Education, approving out-of-country study courses for the university for 2006-07, granting public easements for the Centennial Village project and reviewing other routine items.
The TSUS board serves as the governing body for ASU and the other eight institutions making up the system. The other institutions are Lamar University, Lamar Institute of Technology, Lamar State College-Orange, Lamar State College-Port Arthur, Sam Houston State University, Sul Ross State University, Sul Ross State University-Rio Grande College and Texas State University-San Marcos.
