DIFFERENCE (TOTAL RECOMMENDED AND EXISTING OPERATING BUDGET)

The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 100.1% of the existing operating budget. It represents 71.5% of the total request ($74,212,575) for this program. In addition to the statewide adjustments cited above, a major reason for the increase from the existing operating budget concerns the non-recurring adjustment made for $75,000 in general for installations of access capability to the Louisiana Online University Information System (LOUIS) at the University of Southwestern Louisiana. LOUIS is an online library system that automates and links 21 state college and university libraries.
