Unformatted text preview: adequate
services
from
the
State
 Both
the
UC
officials
and
the
State
officials
understand
that
the
budget
cut
will
affect
many
 essential
services
that
the
State
of
California
provided
to
its
residents:
K‐12
education,
Medi‐Cal,
 CalWORKs,
Corrections
and
Rehabilitation
and
etc
(The
California
Budget
Project,
2008).


It
will
 be
unlikely
for
the
State
government
to
cut
deeper
in
other
programs
in
order
to
leave
the
 funding
to
the
UC
system
unscathed.

The
expense
reduction
planned
at
the
State‐level
should
 bridge
the
budget
gap
while
maintain
adequate
services.

 4) Promote
long‐term
economic
growth
 Officials
also
understood
that
their
decisions
today
would
inevitably
affect
the
future
economic
 growth
of
the
State
of
California.

The
budget
reduction
should
minimize
the
negative
impact
to
 the
future
prosperity
of
the
State.
 Preferences
or
values
considered
by
the
decision
makers
contribute
to
the
overall
quality
of
the
 decision.

Preferences
should
be
assessed
in
order
to
ensure
1)
integration
of
value
perspectives
 of
all
stakeholders
and
2)
resolving
trade‐offs
among
conflicting
values.


 From
the
budget
proposal
submitted
by
the
UC
regents
and
the
“The
Cuts
Report”
drafted
by
 the
University
Committee
on
Planning
and
Budget,
decision
makers
from
UC
have
clearly
 communicated
their
preferences
to
the
State
officials
(Newfield,
2008).

From
various
reports
 released
by
the
UC
system,
the
UC
system
also
understood
the
preferences
held
by
the
State
 official
to
maintain
budget
balance
and
adequate
services
(Newfield,
2008).

Due
