Effective: October 3, 2014

The purpose of this policy is to implement Chapter 538 of the 2014 Tennessee Public Acts, which aims to protect and maintain the integrity of current prioritization and strategic planning processes established to best use limited state funds for public higher education toward greatest need and opportunity and to ensure prudent fiscal policy.


All legislative proposals or requests for state funding toward public higher education capital projects, maintenance, new academic programs, public service, research activities and engagement opportunities or operational support to be submitted to the General Assembly shall first be considered and acted upon through established processes and procedures to review such requests; provided, however, that if such consideration or action through established processes and procedures is not possible, then such legislative proposals or requests shall be made with the knowledge of the President and the chief executive officer of the campus/institute for which the proposal or request for state funding is made.
