Sequestration

Sequestration is just days away. NASFAA, in their Today’s News has released this morning an institution-by-institution estimate (note the bolding and italics) of the effect of campus-based cuts. According to Justin Draeger, “The model was created using ED’s institutional-level formula elements for the 2013-2014 tentative campus-based allocations.” To find your school, use the (control+f) search feature and search for your OPE-ID or school name. The linkto the report is in the Today’s News article and is for NASFAA members only.

The amounts listed in the “Simulated Post-Sequester Allocations” column assume a 5.1% cut in sequestration. You will notice that the cut doesn’t affect base guarantees, but does affect fair share increases.

A huge thank you to NASFAA for providing this information for us. I am reminded on a daily basis how important our relationship with the regional and national associations are in times like these.

Best of luck on your hunt.

Sincerely,
Brenda Hicks
