Administrative Furlough Plans - FY21

Division of Communications and Marketing

Cost Savings Target for the Administrative Furlough Plan


Impact to Mission and/or Operations

We are delaying filling an open position to reduce our administrative furlough requirement to no more than 5 days per staff member. During the several months period this position must remain vacant, we will have reduced crisis communication and "K-State Today" production capacity. In addition, we have reduced our operating budget by $35,000. This operational reduction will reduce or negate our ability to support any initiatives outside our core mission, replace obsolete office/studio equipment and allow for staff professional development opportunities in FY21.
