Policy Changes

OFM Central Services

Adjustments are made to reflect each agency’s anticipated share of charges from the Office of Financial Management (OFM) for statewide financial applications, One Washington, and other OFM central services. (General Fund - State, Inst of HI ED-Operating Fees Acct - Non-Appropriated)

Campus Security Enhancement

Funding is provided to install and maintain campus security enhancements as funded in the proposed capital supplemental budget. (General Fund - State, Inst of HI ED-Operating Fees Acct - Non-Appropriated)

Teacher Shortage

Chapter 295, Laws of 2019 (Engrossed Second Substitute House Bill 1139) directed Central Washington University (CWU) to remotely supervise student teachers. This provides for the one-time purchase of audiovisual technology and equipment for this purpose. (General Fund - State)

PERS & TRS Plan 1 Benefit Increase

For eligible Public Employees' and Teachers' Retirement Systems Plan 1 members, this item provides an increase of 1.5 percent, up to a maximum of $22 per month. (General Fund - State, Inst of Hi Ed-Dedicated Local Acct - Non-Appropriated, Inst of HI ED-Operating Fees Acct - Non-Appropriated)

Police Compensation

In the fiscal year 2019 collective bargaining process, some CWU police officers, who are represented employees, negotiated an increase to range 62, effective July 1, 2019. This increase produced a salary inversion, placing non-represented police sergeants at a lower salary level than their subordinates. The negotiations concluded too late for CWU to request funding for the sergeants’ salary increase in the 2019-21 budget. Instead, it had to absorb the cost of the increase within existing resources, using one-time funding strategies to bridge the gap between sergeants and their direct reports. This funding will provide a sustainable salary increase for two police sergeant positions. (General Fund - State, Inst of HI ED-Operating Fees Acct - Non-Appropriated)
