Funding calculations
. . Role & mission weighting factor = UCB's share of the state FY 2000-01 general fund base excluding UCHSC & CSU agencies 15.6%  
. . CU-Boulder share given role/mission factor and performance = share of performance funding monies 15.7%  
. . Estimated amount of performance funding (to be determined by legislature spring 01) -- in millions $ 19.5  
. . Estimated amount of CU-Boulder share, in millions (notes D,E) $ 3.1  
. . Difference from share if all institutions scored the same $ 28,478  

Note A: Adjusted to 100% if actual is within two percentage points of benchmark. If not, adjusted to actual/(predicted plus or minus 2 pts) depending on whether actual is above or below the plus/minus 2 percentage-point range.
Note B: Weekly contact hours for tenured, tenure-track, and other instructors are 5.0, 5.9, and 12.4 hours per week, respectively.
Note C: Based on expenditures of $34.7 million, and student FTE of 23,904.
Note D: Incorporates CCHE "prorate factor" that ensures the total does not exceed 100%.
Note E: The CCHE allocation is to the Board of Regents, not to the campus. CU system administration then allocates to campuses. BOR share given $19.5m total is $5.08m.
