A Message from the President
March 27, 2012 - Executive Order - Budget Freeze
Earlier today Governor Jindal signed an Executive Order freezing spending by State agencies.
The only clear exception to the spending freeze provided for post-secondary education is the purchase of essential instructional supplies. Operating fund expenditures not already encumbered for travel, acquisitions and all other items and services appear to be frozen under the Order.
Budget unit heads are directed to exercise extreme caution in the expenditure of funds until additional guidance is available. Additionally, budget unit heads should communicate with the Vice President for Administration and Finance with any questions about the Order.
Additional information will be provided as soon as it is available.
