There has been no change to the fiscal year 1989 Trust Fund budget as approved by the Regents last September. However, it is worth noting that fiscal year 1988 allotments from the contingency, when annualized in 1989, will more than deplete the fiscal year 1989 contingency of $875,000. At this point, there is limited flexibility to accommodate trust fund requirements that may arise during the course of the year. There are several initiatives in varying stages of discussion, or negotiation which may impact fiscal year 1989 (and beyond). They include a proposed program to establish a joint chair in electronics with the Florida International University; rental of SI magazine and other Institutional mailing lists; the Buried Mirror television series; and Project Discovery, a multimedia educational effort involving the Discovery Channel and a potential group of investors.
