Spending Decisions Process

For information regarding the use/spending of the Student Aid portion, see disclosure.

All three traunches of the Institutional and MSI portions went through several rounds of calls for funding proposals across campus divisions, initially focused on transition to remote instruction and student services and later focused toward mixed modality as students return on-campus.  More broadly, additional student aid, revenue loss impacts, and new COVID mitigation services were also considered.  In all, over 700 stated needs were reviewed to determine eligibility within the changing HEERF spending guidance, as wells as federal costing rules, federal award Uniform Guidance, and compliance with UC and UCSC financial policies and practices.  Overhead costs or costs in support of normal day-to-day operations of the campus were excluded from consideration.
