Budget Funding Principles

All funding decisions will be made without regard to the viewpoint being expressed by an applicant. An applicant cannot be granted or denied funding on the basis of its viewpoint or because it advocates a particular opinion or view. Funding decisions will be based on procedures and criteria that are not tied to the viewpoint expressed by the applicant or the approval, disapproval, acceptance, or rejection of that viewpoint.

All individuals making funding decisions on behalf of ASI have agreed and warrant that they will comply with and abide by the requirement that decisions must be made in a viewpoint neutral manner. With respect to any funding decision, all of the individuals making the funding decision are responsible for ensuring compliance with the requirement of viewpoint neutrality.

ASI viewpoint neutral policy is included in the ASI Financial Policies found on the ASI website.

Budgeting Policies

  1. Budget allocations will take into consideration the current fiscal constraints of the overall University Budget and the ASI Budget.
  2. Final Year End Report for Prior Year Funded Program. Applicants that have received funding the prior year must have turned in their final program report by July 31, 2020 to the ASI Director of Finance and Administration Mark Montalvo at montalvo@csus.edu and Daisy Yepez at djy28@csus.edu. If the program report was not received, applicants may not be eligible to apply for the ASI Student Employment Grant for the 2021-2022 funding year.
  3. Final Year End Reports must demonstrate the minimum three efforts made to support and promote ASI to the student body. Efforts may include distributing ASI information to students, coordinating with ASI Board Members to deliver ASI presentations to the program and/or students and promoting the ASI Student Government elections held in the spring each year. One of the three efforts must include promotion of the ASI Student Government election. If the program report is not received, applicants may not be eligible to apply for the ASI Student Employment Grant for the 2022-2023 funding year.
  4. Additionally, for grants awarded in the 2020-2021 funding year, the Final Year End Report submitted by funding recipients must also include the (1) University Payroll Detail Report and (2) the Financial Data Warehouse report (or appropriate payroll report if University affiliated auxiliary) to account for the student wages used during that fiscal year. If the program report is not received, applicants may not be eligible to apply for the ASI Student Employment Grant for the 2022-2023 funding year.
  5. The ASI Student Employment Grant is not intended to be a long-term sole source of support. Programs that have received two (2) consecutive years of ASI funding will be expected to have significant funding from other sources, providing a realistic plan for long-term program support for self-sufficiency.
  6. Programs that are granted ASI funding must provide acknowledgment of the source of funds by printing ”Student Employment Supported by ASI” on all websites, social media, printed promotional material prepared for the program with the provided ASI funding logo. Program and/or departments shall include a photo of each effort to be included in Final Year End Report.
  7. ASI funding will not fund student employment in support of faculty research.
  8. Please note that starting with the fiscal year 2019-20 Grant application, all student assistant positions funded by the grant proceeds will no longer be employed by Associated Students, Inc. All student assistants will be employed by the University and/or University Affiliated Auxiliaries.

Questions concerning the packet or process should be directed to: ASI, Director of Finance and Administration, Mark Montalvo at montalvo@csus.edu or Daisy Yepez at djy28@csus.edu.
