SECTION 700. BUDGETS AND APPROPRIATIONS.
700 A. Budget Recommendations.
The Board of Governors shall develop, prepare, and present to the governor, the Advisory Budget Commission, and the General Assembly a single, unified recommended budget for all of public senior higher education. The recommendations shall consist of requests in three general categories: (i) funds for the continuing operation of each constituent institution, (ii) funds for salary increases for employees exempt from the State Personnel Act, and (iii) funds requested without reference to constituent institutions, itemized as to priority and covering such areas as new programs and activities, expansions of programs and activities, increases in enrollments, increases to accommodate internal shifts and categories of persons served, capital improvements, improvements in levels of operation, and increases to remedy deficiencies, as well as other areas. [See G.S. 116-11(9)a]
700 B. Appropriations and Allocations.
Funds for the continuing operation of each constituent institution shall be appropriated directly to the institution. Funds for salary increases for employees exempt from the State Personnel Act shall be appropriated to the Board of Governors in a lump sum for allocation to the institutions. Funds for the third category in Section 700 A above, shall be appropriated to the Board of Governors in a lump sum. The Board of Governors shall allocate to the institutions any funds appropriated, said allocation to be made in accordance with the board's schedule of priorities; provided, however, that when both the board and the Director of the Budget deem it to be in the best interest of the state, funds in the third category may be allocated, in whole or in part, for other items within the list of priorities or for items not included in the list. [See G.S. 116-11(9)b]
700 C. Transfers of Appropriated Funds.
The director of the budget may, on recommendation of the Board of Governors, authorize transfer of appropriated funds from one institution to another to provide adjustments for over- or under-enrollment or may make any other adjustment among institutions that would provide for the orderly and efficient operation of the institutions.
