Lane Community College shall maintain an unrestricted General Fund Ending Fund Balance equal to or greater than 5% of total budgeted expenditures.
The Ending Fund Balance target shall include the Unappropriated Ending Fund Balance (UEFB) as set by board policy BP 295. When the Ending Fund Balance falls to 4% or less, the college shall adopt a plan to replenish the Ending Fund Balance to 5% within two years. When the Ending Fund Balance exceeds 6%, balances in excess may be set aside for reserves or investment in one time expenditures.
If the total Ending Fund Balance (including restricted) falls to levels that require short-term borrowing, the levels set by this policy shall be automatically reviewed and adjusted as necessary.
