BPC proposes wage freeze, health plan changes

Feb 27, 2009  

Ohio University's Budget Planning Council (BPC) issued recommendations Friday to help close a projected multimillion dollar deficit in fiscal 2010.

The recommendations, highlighted in a memo to faculty and staff from Executive Vice President and Provost Kathy Krendl and Senior Vice President for Finance and Administration Bill Decatur, who co-chair BPC, call for:

  • Freezing salaries in fiscal 2010, with the exception of employees who are contractually obligated to receive raises, and postponing a $1.2 million investment in raising faculty salaries.

  • Adopting measures to reduce health care costs by $3 million annually.

  • Implementing enhancements to the health care plan recommended by the Benefits Advisory Committee, including improvements to vision, dental and mental health coverage.

Read the full memo on the university's budget site.
