Ad Hoc Budget Committee continues to provide fiscal transparency

In February 2009, Eastern President Elsa Núñez established the Ad Hoc University Budget Committee to help reduce costs, defray expenses and help balance the budget. She also asked the committee to discover innovative ways to identify and develop cost-saving opportunities on campus as part of the Works-$mart initiative. "Eastern's Work $mart program has received many suggestions to reduce energy consumption, ranging from turning off computers in computer labs when they are not in use to the eliminating some of our paper process by utilizing electronic requisitions and electronic signatures," said James Howarth, associate vice president of finance and administration.  Besides energy-saving efforts, Eastern continues to manage its budget by reducing printing expenses; purchasing supplies in bulk; reducing the use of paper communications and not filling vacant staff positions.
