Baseline Adjustments

 

 

 

 

  1.  MPSERS Normal Cost Offset. The Senate included additional funds for MPSERS normal costs, which are the present value of the cost of future retirement benefits accrued during a year of employment. This appropriation varies annually, based on market conditions, payroll growth, and various other actuarial assumptions.

  3.  Michigan Competitive Scholarship (MCS) Phaseout. The Senate's budget reflects an anticipated reduction in MCS expenditures due to the eventual phaseout of the MCS associated with the Michigan Achievement Scholarship (MAS). Statute does not allow a student to receive an award from both the MCS and MAS; since the MAS has a significantly higher award amount for most students, it is anticipated that students who would be eligible for both will select the MAS.

  4.  MPSERS Unfunded Actuarily Accrued Liabilities (UAAL) Stabilization Payment. The Senate removed appropriations for the State's share of MPSERS UAAL costs in excess of the 25.73% statutory cap. The FY 2021-22 budget contained $384.7 million to pay down this liability and to rebase the annual payments the 7 MPSERS universities pay toward the UAAL. The rebased payment amounts for each university will not exceed the cap during FY 2023-24, so no State payment is statutorily required.

New Programs/Program Increases

 

 

 

 

  5.  University Operations Increase. The Senate included a 6.0% ongoing operations increase for universities, distributed proportionately to each university's FY 2022-23 operations amounts. This increase also reflects a 6.0% increase for MSU Extension and AgBioResearch.

  6.  University Per-FYES Floor Payments. The Senate included additional funds for the second year of a 3-year policy intended to bring each university's per-FYES State aid up to a minimum of $4,500 per FYES. Oakland, Grand Valley, and U of M - Dearborn would receive additional funds under this item.

  9.  Information Technology, Equipment, and Maintenance (ITEM) Grants. The Senate included $141.3 million in one-time GF/GP for universities to use on various IT, equipment, and other capital costs, including sustainability efforts and the repayment of debt.

Those universities received a smaller ongoing funding increase in the FY 2022-23 budget; this payment would make up the difference between what those universities received as an increase in FY 2022-23 and the minimum increase received by other universities.
