- By the eighth week of Autumn quarter, the Senate shall adopt a
schedule specifying the date by which student organizations seeking
Senate approval for the placement of their Special Fee request on the
ballot in the Association general election shall submit their budgets
for the following fiscal year to the Senate Appropriations Committee,
and the date(s) on which the Appropriations Committee may submit such
budgets to the Senate for approval. Budgets may not be submitted to
the Senate later than eight weeks before the end of Winter Quarter.
- The Senate Appropriations Committee shall review all Special Fee
requests submitted to it in accordance with this schedule, and shall
recommend to the Senate whether or not each Special Fee request should
be placed on the ballot by the Senate in its original or an amended form,
and may recommend that the special fee request be divided.
- The Appropriations Committee's recommendation to the Senate
shall be based on all relevant information, including but not limited
to: the reasonableness of the detailed budget submitted by the student
organization and the size of its total fee request, a consideration of
the organization's other potential sources of income, the value of the
services provided to the members of the Association by the
organization, and the appropriateness of using Special Fee funds to
provide those services.
