-On November 7, 2014, Governor Jindal issued Executive Order BJ 14-16 that directed executive branch agencies including higher education to cease spending in support (non-personnel) categories. A link to the Executive Order can be found at http://www.doa.louisiana.gov/osr/other/bj14-16.htm. In response, LSU has developed operating guidelines to meet the spirit of the order through June 30, 2015 in support of the state budget. These guidelines apply only to expenditures using State appropriated funds that are included in the University's 2014-15 Operating Budget and so identified with a zero (0) in the sixth digit of the account number.
-The University will be closed December 24, 2014 through January 1, 2015 for holiday break.
-Please send any information you would like included in the next weekly to email@example.com.
