December 19, 2005 Honorable Chairman, Board of Trustees, and President The Citizens of the Austin Community College District Dear Board Members and President: The following comprehensive annual financial report of the Austin Community College District (the College) for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2005, is hereby submitted. Responsibility for the preparation and integrity of the financial information, and the completeness and fairness of the presentation, including all disclosures, rests with the College. The financial statements are prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) as established by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) and comply with Annual Financial Reporting Requirements for Texas Public Community and Junior Colleges as set forth by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB). The Notes to the Financial Statements are provided in the financial section and are considered essential to fair presentation and adequate disclosure for this financial report. The notes include the Summary of Significant Accounting Policies for the College and other necessary disclosures of important matters relating to the financial position of the College. The notes are treated as an integral part of the financial statements and should be read in conjunction with them. The College is reporting as a special purpose government engaged solely in business type activity (BTA). In accordance with GASB Statements 34 and 35, this presentation of financial reporting combines all fund groups into a single column and resembles the format of the corporate presentation, thus facilitating comparison. To the best of our knowledge, the enclosed data are accurate in all material respects and are reported in a manner designed to present fairly the financial position and results of operations of the College. All disclosures necessary to enable the reader to gain an understanding of the District’s financial activities have been included. The comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR) is presented in five sections: introductory, financial, federal single audit, state single audit, and statistical section. The introductory section, which is unaudited, includes this transmittal letter, the College’s organizational chart, and a list of the College’s principal elected and appointed officials. The financial section includes the report of the independent public accountants on the basic financial statements and schedules, the management discussion and analysis, the basic financial statements, and notes to the basic financial statements. The statistical section includes selected unaudited financial and demographic information presented on a multi-year basis. The federal and state single audit report sections contain the schedules and reports required by statute. The College is required to undergo an annual federal single audit in conformity with the provisions of the Single Audit Act Amendments of 1996, and U.S. Office of Management

vii

and Budget Circular A-133, Audits of States, Local Governments and Non-Profit Organizations, and an annual state single audit in conformity with the Texas Governor’s Office of Budget and Planning Uniform Grant Management Standards Single Audit Circular. Information related to these single Audits, including the schedule of federal expenditures of awards, schedule of state expenditures of awards, and auditor’s reports on compliance and on internal controls is included in the federal and state single audit sections of this report. Governmental Structure The Austin Community College District was established as a public community college by voters of the Austin Independent School District in an election held in Travis County, Texas, in December 1972. The College operates as a community college district under the Constitution of the State of Texas and the Texas Education Code. The College is governed by an elected nine-member, Board of Trustees (hereinafter called the “Board”). At each election, three Trustees are elected to serve in a six-year, at-large position. The Board holds regularly scheduled meetings on the first Monday of each month, and a work session on the third Monday of each month, unless otherwise announced. Board meetings are held in the Boardroom at the College’s administrative office building (Highland Business Center) unless otherwise provided in the notice of a meeting. The Board has the final authority to determine and interpret the policies that govern the College and has oversight responsibility of the College’s activities limited only by the state legislature, the courts, and the will of the people as expressed in Board of Trustee elections. Official Board action is taken only in meetings that comply with the Open Meetings Act and are based on a majority vote of a quorum (five members) of the Board. In general, the Board provides policy direction and sets goals for the College consistent with the College’s role and mission. Besides general Board business, trustees are charged with numerous statutory regulations, including appointing the tax assessor/collector, ordering elections, and issuing bonds. The Board is also responsible for appointing the President, setting the tax rate, and adopting the budget for the ensuing fiscal year. Mission and Values Austin Community College District, a comprehensive two-year institution established in 1972, is dedicated to providing quality education that exceeds the expectations of its service area as defined by Texas Education Code 130.166. This service area spans across eight counties, and includes all of Bastrop, Hays, Gillespie, Caldwell, and Blanco counties, most of Travis county, and part of Williamson and Gonzales counties. Accordingly, the vision statement is as follows: “As a team, we will provide access to educational excellence and serve our students and community with passion and commitment.” Furthermore, Austin Community College is committed to: • •

Communication – belief in an environment that promotes an open and responsible exchange of ideas; Access – belief in providing educational opportunities for all members of the community;

viii

• • •

Responsiveness – belief in targeting actions to address service area and internal needs within available resources; Excellence – belief in a commitment to integrity and exemplary standards in educational programs and services to students, faculty, and staff; and Stewardship – belief in personal and professional ownership that generates accountability.

Economic Condition and Outlook Travis and Williamson Counties, portions of which are included in the College’s taxing district, are located in Central Texas, 150 miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico. According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the population of Travis County, the primary county in the district, was 854,407 as of 2003, an increase of almost 47% from 1990 to 2003, and is expected to continue to grow in the future. Austin is the state capital, and consequently 16% of its workforce is employed with state and local government agencies. The remainder of the county’s economic base consists of manufacturing, computer technology, and trade and service industries. Travis County and the surrounding region are recovering well from an economic downturn which adversely impacted local employment in the high tech sector. According to the Texas Workforce Commission, the regional civilian workforce had increased nearly 3% from 504,154 in 2004 to 517,487 in 2005. The unemployment rate continued to improve during 2005 and reportedly was 4.1%, which is slightly lower than the statewide unemployment rate of 5%. According to the 2000 census, residents of Travis County are typically well educated, with 40.6% of the workforce population over 25 possessing a bachelor’s degree or higher. As the high tech industries continue to rebound, there should once again prove to be a valuable resource of skilled professionals. The College is optimistic that Travis County and the surrounding areas will continue to prosper. During the past three years, the College experienced significant budget challenges due to rescissions and reductions in state appropriations as a result of the lagging state economy. For the FY06-07 biennium the Texas State Legislature provided some relief by partially restoring state appropriations to the College by 3.8% over the FY04-05 biennium. The state reductions were mitigated by District voters approving a referendum in May 2003 to increase the College’s ad-valorem tax cap from .05 per $100 of valuation to .09 by 2006, and approved $99 million in General Obligation bonds. The College anticipates budget challenges in the future due to a growing demand for higher education, and costs increasing at rates greater than increases in state support. Major Initiatives The College has devoted significant time and effort in planning for the future. During FY 2005 the College continued major construction and renovation projects as defined in its current facilities master plan in order to provide space for ten thousand additional students by 2010 to meet the state’s “Closing the Gaps” initiative of increasing participation in higher education. In 2005 the College clearly emerged as the regional leader in the Closing the Gaps effort to promote economic development through an educated workforce. Unique and innovative programs such as the College Connection,

ix

which automatically admits area graduating high school seniors to the College, helped increase enrollment, particularly among traditionally under-represented students. College Connection has received national recognition and is being emulated by other community colleges in Texas and other states. Other major initiatives that highlighted FY 2005 include: •

• • •



• •

A successful annexation effort to extend the College’s Taxing District out to the city limits of Austin provided an additional $9 billion in appraised value, while providing more affordable access to higher education for all residents within the city of Austin; Formation of a local steering committee in the San Marcos ISD area to pursue annexation into the College’s taxing district; A district-wide administrative reorganization which focuses resources on student success and saves administrative expense; Opening of the Round Rock Higher Education Center in partnership with Texas State University – San Marcos, providing daytime college classes in Round Rock, Texas for the first time and strengthening the relationship with a key partner. Austin Community College and Texas State University-San Marcos also entered into a new, more comprehensive articulation agreement; A focus on process and quality that achieved a Level II Progress Award for performance excellence in information technology from the University of Texas Center for Performance Excellence – a recognition program based on the Malcolm Baldridge National Quality Award criteria; Selection of a nationally recognized Facilities Master Planning firm to update the College’s master plan based on a region-wide focus; and, Increased initiatives by the Austin Community College Foundation to enhance giving to the District for scholarships, endowments, and capital improvements.

While state funding reductions have transferred substantially more of the cost burden to students and local taxpayers, these constituencies have responded favorably to keep the College in a position to meet the future educational needs of the region. The College is moving ahead with significant plans for expansion thanks to its community support, and expects to maintain its role as a major source of post-secondary education and economic development in the Central Texas region. For FY 2006, the College plans to further develop its strategic academic and facilities planning for the region, which will include vigorously pursuing expansion of its taxing district through annexation. Financial Information Internal Controls: College management is responsible for establishing and maintaining internal controls designed to ensure that the assets of the College are protected from loss, theft, or misuse and to ensure that adequate accounting data are compiled to allow for the preparation of financial statement in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles. The internal controls are designed to provide reasonable, but not absolute, assurance that these objectives are met. The concept of reasonable assurance recognizes that: (1) the cost of a control should not exceed the benefits likely

x

to be derived; and (2) the valuation of costs and benefits requires estimates and judgments by management. Single Audit: As a recipient of federal, state, and local financial assistance, the College also is responsible for ensuring that adequate internal control is in place to ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations related to those programs. This internal control is subject to periodic evaluation by management and the independent auditors of the College. As a part of the College’s single audits, described earlier, tests are made to determine the adequacy of the internal control, including that portion related to federal and state awards programs, as well as to determine that the College has complied with applicable laws and regulations. The results of the College’s single audits for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2005, provided no instances of material weaknesses in internal control. Budgeting Controls: The College continues to apply budgetary controls and accounting on a fund basis. The objective of these budgetary controls is to ensure compliance with legal provisions embodied in the annual appropriated budget approved by the College’s Board of Trustees. Activities of the unrestricted current fund, auxiliary enterprises fund, and retirement of indebtedness fund are included in the annual appropriated budget. The College also maintains an encumbrance accounting system as one technique of accomplishing budgetary control. Encumbered amounts roll over into the next year and are generally re-appropriated as part of the next year’s budget. As demonstrated by the statements and schedules included in the financial section of this report, the College continues to meet its responsibility for sound financial management. Please refer to the Management’s Discussion and Analysis for more information on the College’s financial activity and position. Cash Management During the year, the College hired an investment management firm to provide professional investment management of the College’s funds. Historically, the College’s funds were invested internally in demand deposits and TexPool (a state sponsored public funds investment pool). Beginning in June 2005, the College began to diversify its portfolio under the guidance of the investment management firm. As a result, on August 31, 2005 the College’s portfolio was comprised of 20% US Treasuries, 44% Federal Agencies, and 36% TexPool. Also, the College has changed its yield benchmark from the 90-day US Treasury Bill to the Merrill Lynch 0-6 Month Treasury Bill Index. Since the College started using the advisement services of PFM in June through August 31, 2005, the College’s annualized return was 3.96% compared to the benchmark of 3.27%. During that same period TexPool yielded 3.44%, so the College has noticeably improved its returns by diversifying from 100% in TexPool. The College earned interest revenue of $2,713,479 net of investment expenses on all investments for the year ended August 31, 2005. The College’s investment policy, which is reviewed and updated annually, is designed to minimize credit and market risks while maintaining a competitive yield on the portfolio. Accordingly, bank deposits were either insured by federal depository insurance or collateralized throughout the year. Note 3 to the Financial Statements provides details of the College’s investment portfolio and more fully describes the credit risk.

xi

Risk Management Risk Management is the ongoing process by which financial loss and exposure to risk is assessed and action is taken to minimize risk, to transfer risk, and to finance risk through various devices, including insurance. All areas of the College are reviewed for possible risk management and loss-control activities. The Vice President for Business Services is responsible for recommending to the President and the Board the amounts of insurance the College should carry and the amount of risk the College should assume through coinsurance and deductibles. Insurance coverage includes: Property; General Liability; Educators Liability; Employee Dishonesty Coverage; Police Liability; Automobile Liability; Student Travel and Medical Professional Liability; Accident Insurance for Children at Daycare Centers; Unemployment Compensation, and Workers’ Compensation. Additionally, all eligible employees are provided with paid, medical, dental, life, and accidental and dismemberment insurance. Dependent coverage is available at group rates. For unemployment compensation, the College elects to participate in a program administered by the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) rather than being a taxing employer with rates set by the Texas Employment Commission. Rates are factored according to the experience and size of the College. The program is a form of self-insurance with stop-loss coverage. The College participates in a workers’ compensation insurance program that is administered by Texas Political Subdivisions (TPS). The College pays a premium for the fixed cost and loss fund maximum. The fixed costs cover claims administration and loss control and are not recoverable. Loss costs are only paid if the College experiences losses. Independent Audit State statutes require an annual audit by independent certified public accountants. The College’s Board of Trustees selected the accounting firm of McConnell & Jones. In addition to meeting the requirements set forth in state statutes, their audit also was designed to meet the requirements of the Federal Single Audit Act Amendments of 1996 and related OMB Circular A-133 and the state single audit related to the Uniform Grant Management Standards Single Audit Circular. The auditor’s reports related specifically to the Single Audits are included in the Single Audit Sections. Awards The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) awarded a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting to Austin Community College District for its comprehensive annual financial report for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2004. This was the second consecutive year that the College has achieved this prestigious award. In order to be awarded a Certificate of Achievement, a government must publish an easily readable and efficiently organized

xii

comprehensive annual financial report. This report must satisfy both generally accepted accounting principles and applicable legal requirements. A certificate of Achievement is valid for a period of one year only. We believe that our current comprehensive annual financial report continues to meet the Certificate of Achievement Program’s requirements and we are submitting it to the GFOA to determine its eligibility for another certificate. Acknowledgements We are grateful to the Board of Trustees for its interest in planning and oversight of the financial operations of the College. We especially want to acknowledge the staff of Business Services for their hard work and dedicated service, for we could not have accomplished the preparation of this report without their diligent efforts. We would also like to thank the accounting firm of McConnell & Jones for their assistance with the audit.

Financial Section

INDEPENDENT AUDITORS’ REPORT

To the Board of Trustees Austin Community College District Austin, Texas We have audited the accompanying basic financial statements of the Austin Community College District (the “College”), as of and for the year ended August 31, 2005, as listed in the table of contents. These basic financial statements are the responsibility of the College’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these basic financial statements based on our audit. The financial statements of the College as of August 31, 2004, were audited by other auditors whose report dated November 24, 2004, expressed an unqualified opinion on those statements. We did not audit the financial statements of ACC Foundation, Inc. (a component unit of the College). Those financial statements were audited by other auditors, whose reports have been furnished to us; and our opinion on the basic financial statements insofar as it relates to the amounts included for ACC Foundation, Inc. is based on the report of other auditors. We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America and the standards applicable to financial audits contained in Government Auditing Standards, issued by the Comptroller General of the United States. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the basic financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the basic financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall basic financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion. In our opinion, the basic financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the College as of August 31, 2005, and the results of its operations and cash flows for the year then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. As discussed in Note 25 to the financial statements, library books were previously categorized as non-depreciable assets as required by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. This resulted in an understatement of previously reported depreciation expense and accumulated depreciation and an overstatement of capital assets as of August 31, 2004. Accordingly, the 2004 financial statements have been restated and an adjustment has been made to net assets as of September 1, 2003 to correct the error. As further discussed in Note 25, the financial statements for the year ended August 31, 2004 were restated for various reasons described in this paragraph. State appropriations were reclassified from operating to non-operating revenues. Cash and accrued liabilities have been adjusted to exclude outstanding checks held by various vendors. Additionally, net assets and deferred charges at August 31, 2004 were restated to properly account for revenues and expenses that were incorrectly reported.

In accordance with Government Auditing Standards, we have also issued our report dated November 11, 2005, on our consideration of the College's internal control over financial reporting and on our tests of its compliance with certain provisions of laws, regulations, contracts, and grants. That report is an integral part of an audit performed in accordance with Government Auditing Standards and should be read in conjunction with this report in considering the results of our audit. Our audit was performed for the purpose of forming an opinion on the basic financial statements taken as a whole. The supplemental schedules on pages 55 through 58, 87 and 96 are presented for purposes of additional analysis as required by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, U.S. Office of Management and Budget Circular A-133, "Audits of States, Local Governments, and Non-Profit Organizations" and the State of Texas Single Audit Circular, respectively. These schedules are not required as part of the basic financial statements. The information in these schedules has been subjected to the auditing procedures applied in the audit of the basic financial statements and, in our opinion, is fairly stated, in all material respects, in relation to the basic financial statements taken as a whole. The Management’s Discussion and Analysis on pages 3 through 16 is not a required part of the basic financial statements but is supplementary information required by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board. We have applied certain limited procedures, which consisted principally of inquiries of management regarding the methods of measurement and presentation of the supplementary information. However, we did not audit the information and express no opinion on it. The statistical section on pages 59 through 82 have been furnished to us and were not subjected to the audit procedures applied in the audit of the financial statements. Accordingly, we do not express an opinion on the statistical sections.

MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

THIS PAGE LEFT BLANK INTENTIONALLY.

AUSTIN COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS (UNAUDITED) Financial Statement Analysis and Overview

The following discussion and analysis of Austin Community College District’s (the College) annual financial statements provides an overview of the College’s financial activities for the years ended August 31, 2005 (Fiscal Year 2005), 2004 (Fiscal Year 2004), and 2003 (Fiscal Year 2003), and identifies changes in its financial position for these years. In conformity with Government Accounting Standards Board (GASB) 34, the discussion focuses on currently known facts, decisions, and conditions that have an impact on the financial activities of the College and is intended to assist the reader in the interpretation of the financial statements. The financial statements should be read in conjunction with the notes to the basic financial statements. The financial statements are prepared in accordance with the GASB Statement No. 34, Basic Financial Statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis for State and Local Governments and Statement No. 35, Basic Financial Statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis for Public Colleges and Universities. Three primary statements are required: the Statement of Net Assets; the Statement of Revenues, Expenses, and Changes in Net Assets; and the Statement of Cash Flows. Financial statements for the College’s component unit, Austin Community College Foundation (Foundation); are issued independent of the College. The Foundation’s financial information for fiscal years 2005 and 2004 is shown on separate pages behind the College’s basic financial statements. Refer to Notes 1 and 24 in the Notes to Financial Statements for more detail on the Foundation. The following summary and management discussion and analysis of the results is intended to provide readers with an overview of the basic financial statements. Some of the financial highlights of FY 2005 are as follows: •

Assets of the College exceeded liabilities at the close of the fiscal year ending on August 31, 2005 by $58.9 million. Of this amount $4.1 million (unrestricted net assets) may be used to meet the College’s ongoing obligations.



At the end of the current Fiscal Year, total college revenues exceeded total expenses by $2.1 million, primarily as a result of improving interest rates.



Reliance on local tax revenue to fund College operations increased as the State of Texas’ reduction of State appropriations for the 2004-05 biennium for community colleges continued to have an impact.

Statement of Net Assets The Statement of Net Assets presents all of the College’s assets and liabilities, and change in net assets as of the end of the fiscal year. The statement is prepared under the accrual basis of accounting, in which revenues and assets are recognized when earned, and expenses and liabilities are recognized when incurred regardless of when cash is received or paid. The

3

AUSTIN COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS (UNAUDITED) difference between total assets and total liabilities – net assets – is one indicator of whether the overall financial condition has improved or deteriorated during the year when considered with other factors such as enrollment, contact hours of instruction, student retention and other nonfinancial information. Finally, the Statement of Net Assets is useful in determining the assets available to continue operations as well as how much the College owes to vendors, bondholders, and other entities at the end of the year. The Statement of Net Assets includes assets and liabilities, both current and non-current, and net assets. Current assets are those assets that are available to satisfy current liabilities, or liabilities that are due within one year. Non-current assets include capital assets, long-term investments, and other assets not classified as current. Non-current liabilities include bonds payable and other long-term commitments. Net Assets are divided into three major categories. The first category, “Invested in Capital Assets Net of Related Debt,” represents the College’s equity in property, plant and equipment owned by the institution. The next category is “Restricted Net Assets” which is further divided into two categories: Nonexpendable and Expendable. Expendable restricted net assets are available for expenditures but must be spent in accordance with the restrictions of donors and other external entities. The final category, “Unrestricted Net Assets,” are assets available to the institution for any lawful purpose of the College. Further detail regarding assets, liabilities, and net assets is presented in the Statement of Net Assets and notes to the financial statements.

Total Assets increased by $2.9 million. The majority of the increase was due to the addition of capital assets in the amount of $9.2 million, which consisted of the completion of phase II construction of the Health Science expansion project as well as the ongoing construction of the South Austin and Cypress Creek campuses. The capital assets were offset by a reduction in bond monies used for the aforementioned construction. Since 2003, the College has increased its overall total assets before considering liabilities by $25.2 million – which represents the

4

AUSTIN COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS (UNAUDITED) amount paid for construction since the College issued general obligation bonds in the amount of $99 million: $24 million in 2004 and $75 million in 2003. Total liabilities increased by $0.8 million. The major change in liabilities was a result of accounts payable increasing by $1.9 million at year end which is attributable to timing differences relative to invoice receipts in addition to decreases in other current liabilities of $0.5 million and a $0.6 million decrease in noncurrent liabilities in the noncurrent portion of notes and bonds payable. In FY 2004, accounts payable declined by $0.3 million to $3.3 million from $3.6 million in FY 2003. Deferred revenues increased by $0.4 million in the current year, and by $1.7 million, from $18 million to $19.7 million for fiscal years 2004 and 2003 respectively. The increases are attributable to Fall 2005 tuition increases. The College’s net assets (assets less liabilities) increased by $2.1 million from the previous year. Specifically, net assets were $58.9 million in 2005, $56.8 million in 2004 and $57.3 million in 2003. The increase in net assets is a result of revenues earned exceeding expenses incurred. We attribute the increase to the fact that investment income performed better than anticipated resulting in a $1.6 million increase in addition to a $.5 million increase in other nonoperating revenues. Compared to the two previous years, the College performed better in 2005. In 2004 net assets decreased by $0.4 million and by $5.9 million in 2003. A more detailed discussion follows the Statement of Revenues, Expenses, and Changes in Net Assets. Net assets for fiscal years 2004 and 2003 were restated primarily as a result of the College’s adoption in 2005 of GASB’s requirement to depreciate library books. Specifically, net assets in 2004 were restated from $58.6 million to $56.9 million, a decrease of $1.7 million which represents the cumulative depreciation amount for the library books as well as other minor adjustments for timing differences of scholarship payments. See Note 25 in the basic financial statements for additional information. Statement of Revenues, Expenses, and Changes in Net Assets The Statement of Revenues, Expenses and Changes in Net Assets presents the College’s overall results of operations. The statement is divided into Operating Revenues and Expenses and Non-Operating Revenues and Expenses. The College is primarily dependent upon three sources of revenue: state appropriations; tuition and fees; and property taxes. Since state appropriations and property taxes are classified as Non-operating Revenues (per the GASB requirement), Texas community colleges will generally display an operating deficit before taking into account other support. Therefore, total revenues and total expenses should be considered in assessing the change in the College’s financial position. Prior to fiscal year 2005, state appropriations had been classified as operating revenues in accordance with the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) requirements but THECB changed the classification requirement in FY 2005 to be compliant with GASB standard No. 35. Accordingly, state appropriations in fiscal years 2004 and 2003 have been restated as Non-operating Revenues for comparative purposes. Further detail is presented in the Statement of Revenues, Expenses, and Changes in Net assets and in the notes to the financial statements.

Key Factors impacting total revenues: •

State appropriations increased slightly to $43.9 million in fiscal year 2005 from $43.5 million in 2004 partially as a result of a reallocation of employee insurance. State appropriations had decreased in fiscal year 2004 to $43.5 million from $45.4 million in 2003 as a result of the state funding reduction for educational and general expenses that began in mid 2003 with a 7% cut that resulted in a $2.1 million decrease in 2003 from the 2002 funding levels. State appropriations accounted for 28.2% of total revenue in FY 2005, compared to 30.8% of total revenue in FY 2004, and 36.1% in FY 2003.



Tuition and fees were up $2.1 million primarily as a result of tuition increases of $5.00 per hour for in-district students, and an $8.00 per hour increase for both out-of-district and out-of-state students. Enrollment increased by 1.2% in FY 2005 which also impacted the increase realized in tuition and fees. In addition, a building fee of $13 per credit hour was in effect for FY 2005 as it was for FY 2004. Prior to 2004, the building fee was $12 per credit hour but subsequently had been increased by $1.00 in part to cover debt service. Tuition and Fees accounted for 24.4% of total revenue in the current year, compared to 25.4% in FY 2004 and 26.1% in 2003.

AUSTIN COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS (UNAUDITED) •

Grants and Contracts revenue increased primarily as a result of increased funding for Pell and other federal programs.



Other Operating Revenue, which includes miscellaneous fees, property rental, unit revenue, testing fees, and continuing education programs, totaled $3.0 million in 2005, $2.4 million in 2004, and $2.8 million in 2003. The increase in 2005 was a result of an increase in continuing education program revenue of $0.6 million. In 2004, revenues in this category decreased by $0.4 million as a result of reclassifying parking fees to the Tuition and Fee category. Previous years decline in other operating revenues included $0.4 million for a school district distant learning program, which was accounted for as a locally restricted program in FY 2003 rather than as an externally designated program (or other operating revenue) in previous years.



Property taxes, which are categorized as non-operating revenues, increased by $ 7.0 million in 2005 compared with a $ 12.3 million increase in 2004 from 2003. Specifically, the College recognized $ 44.1 million of property tax revenue in 2005, $ 37.1 million in 2004, and $ 24.8 million in FY 2003. Property taxes were increased in FY 2005 as a consequence of the May 2003 special election in which the voters approved a resolution to increase the tax cap from $0.05 to $0.09 cents per one hundred dollars valuation of taxable property by FY 2006. Property taxes in FY 2005 were 28.3% of total revenues compared to 26.3% of total revenues in FY 2004 and 19.8% of total revenues in FY 2003 respectively. See graphical illustration below.

AUSTIN COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS (UNAUDITED) Factors impacting operating expenses by natural classification include the following: •

Fiscal restraints were relaxed in fiscal years 2005 and 2004 compared to FY 2003 wherein budget reductions had been implemented due to mid-year state appropriation reductions.



Salary expense in FY 2005 increased by $7.1 million, an 8.3% increase over 2004. The increase was a result of employee salary increases of approximately $5 million as well as $1.5 million filling new or vacant employee positions, and $.6 million in faculty overloads and adjunct salaries due to a 1% growth in course offerings. Of the newly created positions, 16 were added to staff the College’s new Health Science Center Phase II, while 20 positions were added college-wide mostly to fill vacant facility and maintenance positions. In 2004 salaries had increased by $5.0 million, $3.9 million due to employee salary increases in addition to filling more than 40 vacant positions costing approximately $1.1 million pursuant to the lifting of a two-year hiring freeze. In FY2003 the College continued a hiring freeze which began in FY 2002 and resulted in a 9.6% position vacancy rate.



Utility costs increased by $0.3 million or 10.6% over the previous year due to the addition of the Health Science Center Phase II which became operational summer 2005 as well as general increases in energy costs. In 2004, the Health Science Center I building was opened for the entire fiscal year which also resulted in an increase. In FY 2003, the College had realized savings from retrofitting energy equipment per a contractual agreement with Honeywell. Although the College will continue to save energy costs as a result of the retrofitting project, utility costs are expected to rise as buildings are added.



Other operating expenses increased by $1.8 million in FY 2005 compared to an increase of $0.7 million in FY 2004 over FY 2003 levels as positions were added and fiscal restraints were relaxed from previous year expense levels.



Depreciation expense decreased by $0.2 million from $6.6 million in FY 2004 to $6.4 million in FY 2005. The decrease in 2005 compared to FY 2004 and FY 2003 is primarily a result of depreciation expense being restated for the years ending 2004 and 2003 as discussed above in the Net Asset section. As the College continues to add buildings and equipment, associated depreciation expense is expected to increase.



Scholarship costs were increased in FY 2005 due to an increase in Pell grant awards of $0.9 million. Pell grant awards had increased by $1.4 million in FY 2004 over FY 2003. Total scholarship costs for FY 2005 were $11.3 million compared to $9.5 million in FY 2004 and $8.2 million in FY 2003. The College restated its scholarship costs in FY 2004 resulting in a decrease of $0.4 million. The restatement was due to timing differences between recording costs vs. incurring costs in the fiscal year. Scholarship allowances and discounts remained relatively stable in FY 2005 and only increased by slightly less than $0.7 million over FY 2004. In FY 2004 allowances and discounts had increased by $0.5 million over FY 2003. The largest increase was evident in FY 2003 when allowances and discounts increased by $2.2 million to $7.3 million.

AUSTIN COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS (UNAUDITED) Factors impacting operating expenses by functional classification include the following: •

Academic Support, Physical Plant Operation and Maintenance, Scholarships and Fellowship, and Auxiliary expenses all experienced significant increases in FY 2005 as compared to FY 2004 and FY 2003. Specifically, the largest percentage increase occurred in Academic Support which increased 32.1% in FY 2005 over FY 2004. The increase is attributable to learning and testing lab expenses being accounted for as a support function in FY 2005 vs. an instructional expense as was the practice in FY 2004 and FY 2003 respectively. Almost $1.8 million additional expense was charged to Academic Support in FY 2005. If the College had not made this classification change, expenses for Academic Support would have increased approximately 12.4% in FY 2005 over FY 2004.



Operation and Maintenance spending increased by 15.4% due to the addition of 16 new positions. Auxiliary expenses increased by 11.1% also due to the addition of new positions. Of the total expenses for all functional categories, salary increases accounted for nearly 68% of the $11.7 million increase vs. 59% of the total expenses in FY 2004. As mentioned earlier, a two year hiring freeze was lifted in FY 2004 resulting in approximately 40+ vacant positions being filled. In FY 2004 Operation and Maintenance increased by 3.5% and Auxiliary increased by 23.4% over FY 2003 totals.



Instruction increased by 5.4% in FY 2005 over FY 2004 totals. As mentioned above, learning and testing lab expenses were classified as Academic Support in FY 2005 vs. Instruction expenses. In FY 2004, Instruction increased by 6.4% over FY 2003 totals.



Scholarships: see Operating Expenses by Natural Classification for a detailed explanation of the variances.

CAPITAL ASSET AND DEBT ADMINISTRATION Capital Assets The College had $132.9 million, $123.7 million, and $106.6 million invested in capital assets at August 31, 2005, 2004, and 2003 net of accumulated depreciation of $45.0 million, $44.3 million and $44.3 million for fiscal years 2005, 2004, and 2003 respectively. Depreciation charges totaled $6.4 million, $6.6 million and $7.7 for fiscal years 2005, 2004, and 2003. Details of these assets for fiscal years 2005, 2004, and 2003 are shown below.

Capital Asset and Debt Administration Changes in net capital assets are the result of acquisitions, improvements, deletions, and changes in accumulated depreciation. Effective FY 2005, the College in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles restated its net assets to reflect depreciation of its library books. The effect of this change and recording accumulated depreciation resulted in a decrease in FY 2004 of $2.1 million in net capital assets. See Notes 2 and 25 of the basic financial statements for further detail.

0.2 1.9 4.0 1.2 1.6 0.5 0.3 0.2

These projects were funded by general obligation bonds issued in 2004 and 2003 with the exception of the Health Science Phase I building which was funded by revenue bonds. As of August 31, 2005 the College had in process the construction of its new South Austin campus ($5.7 million), the expansion project at its Cypress Creek campus ($1.6 million), Rio Grande renovations ($0.3 million), and other district wide renovation projects ($.2 million). During FY 2005 the College completed its Health Science Center Phase II for a total of $14.0 million, $1.9 million of which was spent in FY 2005. Additionally, the College completed the expansion of its Eastview campus parking lot, and renovation of its Northridge parking lot. The general obligation bonds funded phase II of the Health Science building the construction of which was begun in FY 2004 and was completed during the summer of this fiscal year. Additionally, the bonds will fund the construction of the South Austin campus, expansion of Cypress Creek, and various other projects/improvements as determined by College Administration and the Board of Trustees. In accordance with GASB Statements No. 34 and 35, the College does not record the cost of its capital assets as an expense at the time of acquisition/completion of the asset, but rather shows the expense systematically over the expected life of the asset as depreciation expense. The amount shown in the accounting records for the value of the asset will decrease each year until the asset is fully depreciated or removed from service. As a result, the amount of capital assets shown in the Statement of Net Assets may decrease from one year to another even though new assets have been acquired during the year. Capital assets subject to depreciation include improvements to land (such as parking lots and signage), buildings, furniture and other equipment, and library books. Land is not depreciated. Debt At August 31, 2005 the College had approximately $154.8 million in outstanding debt, resulting in a decrease of $1.6 million from the previous year. In FY 2004 the College had $156.4 million in outstanding debt – an increase of $21.9 million over FY 2003. Debt outstanding at fiscal year end FY 2003 was $134.5 million. The table below summarizes these amounts by type of debt instrument.

The College’s revenue bonds are special obligations of the College that are payable solely from and will be equally and ratably secured by an irrevocable first lien on pledged revenues. The pledged revenues include, but are not limited to: general fee; pledged tuition, and investment income derived from any and all funds of the College. Capital lease obligations are paid from operating funds of the departments for which the equipment is provided. Notes payable will be paid from operating funds and will be offset by energy savings. In April, 2005 the College issued revenue bonds in the amount of $25.2 million which effectively defeased $24.9 million of older debt. In July 2004, and July 2003, the College issued $23.9 million and $75.0 million in general obligation bonds respectively. The bonds are direct obligations payable from ad valorem taxes levied, within the limitations prescribed by law, against all property located within the district. The bonds were issued to fund the construction, renovation and equipment of college buildings district-wide. The decrease in total debt of $1.7 million is the result of : 1) debt repayments of $2.0 million, 2) issuance of $25.2 million of revenue bonds less refunded bonds of $24.9 million, for a net increase of $0.3 million. The College’s bond ratings assigned by Moody’s Investors Service and Standard and Poor’s Rating Services are “Aaa” and “AAA” respectively. More detailed information about the College’s long-term liabilities is presented in Notes 7, 8, and 9 of the basic financial statements. Economic Factors That Will Affect the Future The economic position of the College is influenced in part by the economic position of the State of Texas, and Travis and Williamson counties. Educational and general state appropriations are expected to be $37.1 million for fiscal year FY 2006, in accordance with the funding awarded in FY 2005. This is an increase from FY 2004 of $1.3 million or 3.8%. In May 2003, the voters of the College’s district approved a tax referendum to increase the ad valorem tax rate for maintenance and operations from $0.05 to $0.09 per one hundred dollars valuation of taxable property by FY 2006, and authorized the issuance of $99 million in general obligation tax bonds. As a result of the referendum, the tax rate was increased in FY 2005 to $.09 from $.0771 in FY 2004. In FY 2005 eight cents ($0.08) was used for maintenance and operations, while one cent ($0.01) was levied for the purpose of debt service on the general obligation bonds issued in 2003 and 2004. In FY 2004, the college increased the tax rate to $0.0771 from $0.05 in FY 2003. Seven cents ($0.07) of the increase was levied for operations and maintenance of the College, and $0.0071 was levied for debt service. Tax revenues in FY 2006 are projected to increase by $9.4 million or 21.3% to $53.5 million from $44.1 million in FY 2005, $37.1 million in

15

AUSTIN COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS (UNAUDITED) FY 2004, and $24.8 million in FY 2003. The increase in FY 2006 property tax revenues is due to an increase in the M&O tax rate from $0.08 to $0.09 ($5.2 million), the May 2004 passage of the Del Valle Independent School District annexation ($2.0 million), and taxable valuation growth of 5.5% ($2.2 million). Furthermore, in May 2005, the voters of the College’s district approved the annexation of the portions of the City of Austin not already in the district. Property tax revenues associated with the annexation will be collected beginning January 2007, and are expected to increase tax revenues by approximately $7.0 million. Tuition and fee revenue for FY 2006 is projected to increase to approximately $39 million or by 2.5% more than was realized in FY 2005. Although the College expects enrollment to slightly increase in FY 2006, the projected increase is due in part to the fact that the College increased both its out of district and out of state tuition rates by $5 per credit hour. The out of district and out of state rates were increased to $102 and $189 per credit hour respectively. The projected increases in revenue will be necessary to fund new or increased expenses in instructional and support functions, and employee benefits which were formerly funded by the state. The College will face a growing challenge in the future to fund anticipated increases in benefits if more state reductions are realized.

AUSTIN COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT Austin, Texas NOTES TO THE BASIC FINANCIAL STATEMENTS For the Fiscal Years Ended August 31, 2005 and 2004

1.

REPORTING ENTITY

The Austin Community College (the “College”) was established in 1973, in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas, to serve the educational needs of Austin and the surrounding communities. The College is considered to be a special purpose, primary government according to the definition in Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) Statement 14, The Financial Reporting Entity. While the College receives funding from local, state, and federal sources, and must comply with the spending, reporting, and record keeping requirements of these entities, it is not a component unit of any other governmental entity. The College is a comprehensive, public, two-year institution offering academic, general, occupational, developmental, and continuing adult education programs through a network of campuses. The College is governed by a nine-member Board of Trustees (the “Board”), which has governance responsibilities over all activities related to the College. GASB Statement No. 39, Determining Whether Certain Organizations are Component Units, an amendment of GASB Statement No. 14, provides additional guidance in determining whether certain organizations for which the College is not financially accountable should be reported as component units based on the nature and significance of their relationship with the primary government. It requires reporting as a component unit if the organization raises and holds economic resources for the direct benefit of the governmental unit and the component unit is significant compared to the primary government. GASB Statement No. 39 has been applied as required in the preparation of these financial statements and the component unit discussed in Note 24 is included with the College because of the significance of its operational and financial relationships with the College.

2.

SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Reporting Guidelines The significant accounting policies followed by the College in preparing these financial statements are in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America as prescribed by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB). Additionally, the College complies with Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board’s Annual Financial Reporting Requirements for Texas Public Community and Junior Colleges. The College applies all applicable GASB pronouncements and all applicable Financial Accounting Standard Board (FASB) statements and interpretations issued on or before November 30, 1989, unless they conflict or contradict GASB pronouncements. The College has elected not to apply FASB guidance issued subsequent to November 30, 1989, unless specifically adopted by the GASB. The College is reported as a special-purpose government engaged in business-type activities.

AUSTIN COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT Austin, Texas NOTES TO THE BASIC FINANCIAL STATEMENTS For the Fiscal Years Ended August 31, 2005 and 2004 Tuition Discounting Texas Public Education Grants: Certain tuition amounts are required to be set aside for use as scholarships by qualifying students. This set aside, called the Texas Public Education Grant (TPEG), is shown with tuition and fee revenue amounts as a separate set aside amount (Texas Education Code § 56.033). When the award is used by the student for tuition and fees, the amount is recorded as tuition discount. If the amount is disbursed directly to the student, the amount is recorded as a scholarship expense. Title IV, Higher Education Act Program Funds: Certain Title IV HEA Program funds are received by the College to pass through to the student. These funds are initially received by the College and recorded as revenue. When the award is used by the student for tuition and fees, the amount is recorded as tuition discount. If the amount is disbursed directly to the student, the amount is recorded as a scholarship expense. Other Tuition Discounts: The College awards tuition and fee scholarships from institutional funds to students who qualify. When these amounts are used for tuition and fees, the amount is recorded as a tuition discount. If the amount is disbursed directly to the student, the amount is recorded as a scholarship expense. Basis of Accounting The financial statements of the College have been prepared on the accrual basis whereby all revenues are recorded when earned and all expenses are recorded when they have been reduced to a legal or contractual obligation to pay. Budgetary Data Each community college in Texas is required by law to prepare an annual operating budget of anticipated revenues and expenditures for the fiscal year beginning September 1. The College’s Board of Trustees adopts the budget, which is prepared on the accrual basis of accounting. A copy of the approved budget and subsequent amendment must be filed with the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, Legislative Budget Board, Legislative Reference Library, and Governor’s Office of Budget and Planning by December 1. Cash and Cash Equivalents The College’s cash and cash equivalents are considered to be cash on hand, demand deposits, and short-term investments with maturities of three months or less from the fiscal year end. Cash and cash equivalents that are externally restricted as to their use are classified as noncurrent assets in the Statement of Net Assets. Board policy requires the College to maintain a minimum unrestricted, unallocated cash level of 8% of budgeted total annual expenses plus

24

AUSTIN COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT Austin, Texas NOTES TO THE BASIC FINANCIAL STATEMENTS For the Fiscal Years Ended August 31, 2005 and 2004 total accounts payable. The College was in compliance with this policy as of August 31, 2005 and 2004. Investments In accordance with GASB 31, Accounting and Financial Reporting for Certain Investments and External Investment Pools, investments are reported at fair value. Fair values are based on published market rates. Short-term investments have an original maturity date greater than three months but less than one year at time of purchase. Long-term investments have an original maturity of greater than one year at the time of purchase. Capital Assets Capital assets are recorded at cost at the date of acquisition, or fair value at the date of donation. Equipment with an estimated useful life less than one year are not capitalized. Renovations to buildings and infrastructure and land improvements that significantly increase the value or extend the useful life of the structure are capitalized. The costs of normal maintenance and repairs that do not add to the value of the asset or materially extend the useful life of the asset are charged to operating expense in the year in which the expense is incurred. Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets. The following represents the capitalization threshold and useful lives for the capital asset types:

Capital Asset Type Buildings Facility and Land Improvements Library Books Furniture, Machinery, Vehicles and Other Equipement Telecommunciations and Peripheral Equipment Leasehold Improvements

Capitalization Threshold $ 100,000 100,000 N/A 500 500 100,000

Estimated Useful Life 50 Years 20 Years 15 Years 10 Years 5 Years Lease Tenure

Collections The College has no collections that meet the requirements for capitalization. The College has no other collections for which the College applies policies to (a) maintain them for public exhibition, education, or research; (b) protect, keep unencumbered, care for, and preserve them; and (c) require proceeds from their sale to be used to acquire other collection items are applied. Generally accepted accounting principles permit collections maintained in this manner to be charged to operations at time of purchase rather than capitalized.

25

AUSTIN COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT Austin, Texas NOTES TO THE BASIC FINANCIAL STATEMENTS For the Fiscal Years Ended August 31, 2005 and 2004 Net Assets The College’s net assets are classified as follows: Invested in Capital Assets, Net of Related Debt: This category represents the College’s total investment in capital assets, net of related outstanding debt and accumulated depreciation. Restricted Net Assets, Nonexpendable: Net Assets, such as endowment and similar type funds, which are subject to externally imposed stipulations requiring that the funds be maintained permanently by the College. Restricted Net Assets, Expendable: Net Assets for which the College is legally or contractually obligated to spend in accordance with external restrictions. Unrestricted Net Assets: Unrestricted Net Assets are resources that are not subject to any external restrictions and may be used at the discretion of the governing board for any lawful purpose of the College. When an expense is incurred that can be paid using either restricted or unrestricted resources, the College’s policy is to first apply the expense towards restricted resources, and then towards unrestricted resources. Unearned Revenues Tuition, fees, and other revenues received and related to period after August 31, 2005 or 2004, respectively, have been deferred to the subsequent fiscal year. Estimates The preparation of the financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect certain reported amounts and disclosures. Accordingly, actual results could differ from those estimates. Operating and Non-Operating Revenue and Expense Policy The College distinguishes operating revenues and expenses from non-operating items. Operating revenues and expenses generally result from providing services in connection with the College’s principal ongoing operations. The principal operating revenues are tuition and related fees and Federal grants and contracts. The major non-operating revenue sources are State appropriations and property tax collections. Operating expenses include the cost of sales and services, administrative expenses, and depreciation on capital assets.

26

AUSTIN COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT Austin, Texas NOTES TO THE BASIC FINANCIAL STATEMENTS For the Fiscal Years Ended August 31, 2005 and 2004 New Accounting Pronouncement In March 2003, the GASB issued Statement No. 40, “Deposit and Investment Risk Disclosures.” This statement is an amendment to GASB No. 3, “Deposits with Financial Institutions, Investments (Including Repurchase Agreements), and Reverse Repurchase Agreements,” establishing modified disclosure requirements related to deposit and investment risk. This Statement was implemented in the College’s financial statements for the current fiscal year to meet GASB implementation requirements. In November 2003, the GASB issued Statement No. 42, “Accounting and Financial Reporting for Impairment of Capital Assets and for Insurance Recoveries.” This statement will, among other things, establish accounting and financial reporting standards for the impairment of capital assets. Under this standard, a capital asset is considered impaired when its service utility has declined significantly and unexpectedly. The College has not determined the impact, if any, upon its financial position, results of operations or cash flows upon adoption, which is required on or before the College’s fiscal year ending August 31, 2006. In May 2004, the GASB issued Statement No. 43, “Financial Reporting for Other Postemployment Benefit Plans Other Than Pension Plans”, and in June 2004, the GASB issued Statement No. 45, “Accounting and Financial Reporting by Employers for Post-employment Benefit Other Than Pension Plans.” Statement No. 43 establishes accounting and financial reporting standards for healthcare and other nonpension benefits provided to employees as part of their compensation for services. The statement will be implemented in the District’s fiscal year ending August 31, 2006 to meet GASB requirements. Statement No. 45 establishes standards for the measurement, recognition, and display of other post-employment benefits expenses and related liabilities and assets, and other related disclosure requirements. This statement will be implemented on or before the fiscal year ending August 31, 2007 to meet GASB requirements. The College has not determined the impact, if any, upon its financial position, results of operations or cash flows upon adoption of these two Statements. Reclassification Certain amounts have been reclassified for the prior year’s financial statements to conform to current year presentations. Contributions – The Foundation The Foundation records contributions using the guidance of SFAS No. 116, Accounting for Contributions Received and Contributions Made. Contributions received are recorded as unrestricted, temporarily restricted, or permanently restricted support depending on the existence or nature of any donor restrictions. As donor or time restrictions are satisfied, net assets are reclassified to unrestricted net assets. The Foundation’s policy is to report restricted support that is satisfied in the year of receipt as restricted and then released in the same year. Unconditional promises to give are recorded as revenues and receivables.

The State Comptroller of Public Accounts exercises oversight responsibility over TexPool, the Texas Local Government Investment Pool. Oversight includes the ability to significantly influence operations, designation of management and accountability for fiscal matters. Additionally, the State Comptroller has established an advisory board composed of both participants in TexPool and other persons who do not have a business relationship with TexPool. The Advisory Board members review the investment policy and management fee structure. TexPool invests in securities that meet the requirements of Texas Public Funds Investment Act. Finally, Standard & Poor rates TexPool AAA-m. As a requirement to maintain the rating, weekly portfolio information must be submitted to Standard & Poor, as well as the Office of Comptroller of Public Accounts for review. As of August 31, 2005 and 2004 the College has an investment of $43,507,908 and $112,158,589, respectively, in TexPool, the Texas Local Government Investment Pool. TexPool operates in a manner consistent with the SEC’s Rule 2a7 of the Investment Act of 1940. TexPool uses amortized cost rather than market value to report net assets to compute share prices.

EMPLOYEES’ RETIREMENT PLANS

Defined Benefit Plan The State of Texas (the State) has joint contributory retirement plans for almost all its employees. One of the primary plans in which the College participates is administered by the Teacher Retirement System of Texas (TRS), a multiple-employer public employee retirement system (PERS). It is a cost-sharing PERS with one exception: all risks and costs are not shared by the employer but are the liability of the State of Texas. The Teacher Retirement System of Texas administers retirement and disability annuities, and death and survivor benefits to employees and beneficiaries of employees covered under the plan. It operates primarily under the provisions of Texas Constitution, Article XVI § 67 and Texas Government Code, Title 8, Subtitle C. The Retirement System of Texas also administers proportional retirement benefits and service credit transfer under Texas Government Code, Title 8, Chapter 803 and Chapter 805, respectively. Structure, benefits and contributions are established by state statute. State law provides for fiscal years 2005, 2004 and 2003 a state contribution rate of 6.0% and a member contribution rate of 6.4%. No contribution is required by the College. Contribution

43

AUSTIN COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT Austin, Texas NOTES TO THE BASIC FINANCIAL STATEMENTS For the Fiscal Years Ended August 31, 2005 and 2004 requirements are not actuarially determined but are legally established each biennium pursuant to the following state funding policy: (1)

The state constitution requires legislature to establish a member contribution rate of not less than 6% of the member’s annual compensation and a state contribution rate of not less than 6% and not more than 10% of the aggregate annual compensation of all members of the system during that fiscal year.

(2)

A state statute prohibits benefit improvements or contribution reductions if, as a result of the particular action, the time required to amortize TRS’s unfounded actuarial liabilities would be increased to a period that exceeds 31 years, or, if the amortization period already exceeds 31 years, the period would be increased by such action.

All College employees, except those employed less than one-half the standard workload and those exempted by law, are required to participate in the Teachers Retirement System. For the year ended August 31, 2003, participants were eligible to retire and receive a standard service retirement annuity if the member (1) is at least 65 years old and has at least five years of service credit in the System; (2) if the sum of the member’s age and years of credited service equaled or exceeded 80 years with at least five years of credited service; (3) at age 50 years old and has a least 30 years of service credit in the System; or (4) any combination of age plus years of service which equals 80. If a member is 55 years old and has at least five years of service credit in the System, or is any age below 50 years old and has at least 30 years of service credit in the System, the member is eligible to retire and receive a service retirement annuity reduced from the standard service annuity. Members are fully vested after five years of creditable service and are entitled to any benefit for which eligibility requirements have been met. Effective September 1, 2003, the State retiree insurance program eligibility criteria changed per SB1370, 78th Texas Legislature, 2003 Regular Session. The retiree must have a minimum of 10 years of creditable TRS/ORP service and be at least age 65 or have at least 10 years of creditable TRS/ORP service at any age where the age added to TRS/ORP years of service equals at least 80. Also, effective September 1, 2003, the name of the state employee insurance program changed from the ERS Uniform Group Insurance Program to ERS Group Benefits Program (GBP). For the years ended August 31, 2005 and 2004, total contributions to the Teacher Retirement System amounted to $5,635,857 and $5,130,378, respectively, of which $2,909,034 and $2,648,117, respectively, was made by employees, and $2,499,747 and $2,272,084, respectively, was made by the State of Texas. Total payroll for employees covered by the System for the years ended August 31, 2005 and 2004 was $45,453,663 and $41,379,729, respectively.

That report may be obtained by writing to the TRS Communications Department, 1000 Red River Road, Austin, Texas 78701, by calling 1-800-223-8778, or by downloading the report from the TRS internet website, www.trs.state.tx.us, under the TRS Publications heading. Defined Contribution Retirement Plans The State has also established an Optional Retirement Program (ORP) for institutions of higher education that is subject to amendment by the Texas Legislature. Participation in the ORP is in lieu of participation in the TRS. The ORP provides for the purchase of annuity contracts as individual retirement accounts and is a defined contribution plan. Under the Optional Retirement plan, employees contribute 6.65% and the State of Texas contributes 6.00%. The College contributes 2.50% of each participant’s salary for those employees hired prior to September 1, 1995 and 0.00% for those employees hired subsequent to August 31, 1995. In addition, the College has established a defined contribution Money Purchase Plan for parttime employees, call the Part-Time Employees Retirement System (PTERS). To be eligible for participation in the PTERS, an employee must complete one year of service in a service period. Participation in this plan is in lieu of participation in the TRS or the ORP. Under the PTERS, the College is required to withhold from an employee’s compensation 6% and match an amount equal to 1.5% of the employee’s total compensation for a combined contribution of 7.5% of the employee’s total annual compensation. The College has contracted with Ohio National Life Insurance Company to administer the PTERS. The College maintains the authority to amend plan provisions and contributions of the PTERS. Total combined contributions for the fiscal years ended August 31, 2005 and 2004, are $3,502,961 and $3,284,630, respectively, for the ORP and $1,544,911 and $1,421,216, respectively, for the PTERS. Total payroll of employees participating in plans for the fiscal years ended August 31, 2005 and 2004 are $24,069,093 and $21,500,315, respectively, for ORP and $20,598,819 and $18,949,546, respectively, for the PTERS. Neither the State nor the College has additional or unfunded liabilities for these plans.

ON-BEHALF PAYMENTS

The retirement and insurance expense to the State for the College for the fiscal years ended August 31, 2005 and 2004 was $8,227,788 and $7,786,918, respectively. This amount represents the portion of expended appropriations made by the State Legislature on behalf of the College. For the fiscal years ended August 31, 2005 and 2004 the State made other onbehalf payments for salaries and benefits totaling $3,928,897 and $3,617,673, respectively. For the fiscal years ended August 31, 2005 and 2004 the College recorded the State’s total onbehalf contributions of $4,298,891 and $4,169,245, respectively, as revenues and expenses in the accompanying basic financial statements.

13.

COMPENSATED ABSENCES

Full-time employees earn annual leave from 10 to 13.34 hours per month depending on the number of years employed with the College. The College’s policy is that classified, professional, technical or administrative employees may accrue up to 240 hours of annual leave. Sick leave, which is limited to a maximum of 1,200 hours, is earned at the rate of eight (8) hours per month. The maximum sick leave that may be paid to an employee when he retires is onehalf of the employee’s accumulated entitlement in excess of 960 hours, or 120 hours, whichever is less. The College’s policy is to recognize the cost of sick leave when earned, which provides for the College’s maximum vested liability. For the fiscal years ended August 31, 2005 and 2004 the College recognized $2,945,138 and $2,731,768 respectively, as an accrued liability for the unpaid annual and sick leave. The College’s reporting of accrued liabilities for compensated absences is in accordance with Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) Statement No. 16, Accounting for Compensated Absences. The total amount accrued at August 31, 2005 of $2,945,138 is allocated $673,654 to sick leave and $2,271,484 to annual leave. The total amount accrued at August 31, 2004 of $2,731,768 is allocated $609,710 to sick leave and $2,122,058 to annual leave.

PENDING LAWSUITS AND CLAIMS

On August 31, 2005 and 2004, various lawsuits and claims involving the College were pending. While the ultimate liability with respect to litigation and other claims asserted against the College cannot be reasonably estimated at this time, this liability, to the extent not provided for by insurance or otherwise, is not likely to have a material effect on the College. The College receives federal, state and local grants that are subject to review and audit by the grantor agencies. Such audits could lead to requests for reimbursement to the grantor agency

DEFERRED LEASE – CITY OF AUSTIN

In 1997, the Austin Community College (the “College”) and the City of Austin (the “City”) desired to jointly develop a “One Stop Career Center” to more efficiently coordinate the training and employment of individuals needing specialized vocational job training and educational opportunities. In order to accomplish and develop the Center, the College and the City executed several lease agreements on June 27, 1997 that allow the City to provide money to the College for the construction of the One Stop Career Center as part of the College’s development of its East Austin Community College Campus. The College entered into a long-term lease for twenty years with the City for the lease of a portion of the facilities. Immediately following execution of this lease, the College and the City entered into a sublease agreement in connection with the lease-back of the premises to the College. The sublease is effective the date of the prime lease, and is subject to the condition that the College will enter into a second sublease with the Capital Area Workforce Development Board for the ultimate purpose of providing work space for the One Stop Career Center. The City funded this lease with funds received from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development, and discounted the cost of the rent payment under the Sublease Agreement with the College as a grant to enable the College to reduce the cost of its sublease to the Development Board for the Career Center project. The College and the City agreed that the City would begin paying an annual base rent of $95,000 once the building was completed, or by May 31, 2000. As a result of the prime lease, the City prepaid the entire twenty year annual base rent of $1,900,000 to the College. For the years ended August 31, 2005 and 2004, the College has recognized $95,000 each year as lease payments. The remaining liability is recorded as a long term liability for the fiscal years ended August 31, 2005 and 2004 in the amounts of $1,274,583 and $1,369,583, respectively. The acquisition cost of the building was $2,172,234 and the book value is $1,911,669. Depreciation expense for the current year was $39,048.

18.

FUNDS HELD FOR OTHERS

The College holds funds for certain students and student organizations. These amounts are reflected in the basic financial statements as funds held for other in the amount of $400,595 and $326,851 for the fiscal years ended August 31, 2005 and 2004, respectively.

SELF-INSURED PLANS

As of December 31, 1999, the College ended its Self-Insurance program (which had been in effect since 1992) and became fully insured for workers compensation. All claims incurred from fiscal year 1992 through December 31, 1999 are covered under the College’s Self-Insurance program and all claims incurred subsequent to that date will be covered under the new workers compensation policy. Due to the types of risk self-insured, the ultimate amount to be paid out may be more or less than the amount accrued at August 31, 2005. The College has a contingent liability in the event the insurer is unable to fulfill its responsibility under the contract. At August 31, 2005 and for the prior three years, there were no claims exceeding the College’s retention limits.

POST-RETIREMENT HEALTH CARE AND LIFE INSURANCE BENEFITS

In addition to providing pension benefits, the State provides certain health care and life insurance benefits for retired employees. Almost all of the employees may become eligible for those benefits if they reach normal retirement age while working for the State. Those, and similar benefits for active employees, are provided through an insurance company whose premiums are based on benefits paid during the previous year. The State recognizes the cost of providing these benefits by expending the annual insurance premiums. The cost of providing those benefits for retirees is not separable from the cost of providing benefits for the active employees.

REPORT ON COMPLIANCE AND ON INTERNAL CONTROL OVER FINANCIAL REPORTING BASED ON AN AUDIT OF FINANCIAL STATEMENTS PERFORMED AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH GOVERNMENT AUDITING STANDARDS

To the Board of Trustees Austin Community College District

We have audited the financial statements of Austin Community College District (the “College”) as of and for the year ended August 31, 2005, and have issued our report thereon dated November 11, 2005. We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America and the standards applicable to financial audits contained in Government Auditing Standards, issued by the Comptroller General of the United States. Internal Control over Financial Reporting In planning and performing our audit, we considered College’s internal control over financial reporting in order to determine our auditing procedures for the purpose of expressing our opinions on the financial statements and not to provide an opinion on the internal control over financial reporting. Our consideration of the internal control over financial reporting would not necessarily disclose all matters in the internal control that might be material weaknesses. A material weakness is a reportable condition in which the design or operation of one or more of the internal control components does not reduce to a relatively low level the risk that misstatements caused by error or fraud in amounts that would be material in relation to the financial statements being audited may occur and not be detected within a timely period by employees in the normal course of performing their assigned functions. We noted no matters involving the internal control over financial reporting and its operation that we consider to be material weaknesses. Compliance and Other Matters As part of obtaining reasonable assurance about whether College’s financial statements are free of material misstatement, we performed tests of its compliance with certain provisions of laws, regulations, contracts, and grant agreements, including compliance with the State of Texas Public Funds Investment Act, noncompliance with which could have a direct and material effect on the determination of financial statement amounts. However, providing an opinion on compliance with those provisions was not an objective of our audit, and accordingly, we do not express such an opinion. The results of our tests disclosed no instances of noncompliance or other matters that are required to be reported under Government Auditing Standards. However, we noted other matters that we reported to management of the College, in a separate letter dated November 11, 2005.

This report is intended solely for the information and use of the Board of Trustees, the College’s management, and Federal awarding agencies and pass-through entities and is not intended to be and should not be used by anyone other than these specified parties.

REPORT ON COMPLIANCE WITH REQUIREMENTS APPLICABLE TO EACH MAJOR PROGRAM AND ON INTERNAL CONTROL OVER COMPLIANCE IN ACCORDANCE WITH OMB CIRCULAR A-133

To the Board of Trustees Austin Community College District Compliance We have audited the compliance of Austin Community College District (the “College”) with the types of compliance requirements described in the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-133 Compliance Supplement that are applicable to each of its major federal programs for the year ended August 31, 2005 . The College’s major federal programs are identified in the summary of auditor’s results section of the accompanying schedule of findings and questioned costs. Compliance with the requirements of laws, regulations, contracts, and grants applicable to each of its major federal programs is the responsibility of the College’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the College’s compliance based on our audit. We conducted our audit of compliance in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America; the standards applicable to financial audits contained in Government Auditing Standards, issued by the Comptroller General of the United States; and OMB Circular A-133, Audits of States, Local Governments, and Non-Profit Organizations. Those standards and OMB Circular A-133 require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether noncompliance with the types of compliance requirements referred to above that could have a direct and material effect on a major federal program occurred. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence about the College’s compliance with those requirements and performing such other procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion. Our audit does not provide a legal determination of the College’s compliance with those requirements. In our opinion, Austin Community College District complied, in all material respects, with the requirements referred to above that are applicable to each of its major federal programs for the year ended August 31, 2005. Internal Control Over Compliance The management of the College is responsible for establishing and maintaining effective internal control over compliance with the requirements of laws, regulations, contracts, and grants applicable to Federal programs. In planning and performing our audit, we considered the College’s internal control over compliance with requirements that could have a direct and material effect on a major Federal program in order to determine our auditing procedures for the purpose of expressing our opinion on compliance and to test and report on the internal control over compliance in accordance with OMB Circular A-133.

Our consideration of the internal control over compliance would not necessarily disclose all matters in the internal control that might be material weaknesses. A material weakness is a reportable condition in which the design or operation of one or more of the internal control components does not reduce to a relatively low level the risk that noncompliance with applicable requirements of laws, regulations, contracts, and grants caused by error or fraud that would be material in relation to a major federal program being audited may occur and not be detected within a timely period by employees in the normal course of performing their assigned functions. We noted no matters involving the internal control over compliance and its operation that we consider to be material weaknesses. This report is intended solely for the information and use of the Board of Trustees, the College’s management, and Federal awarding agencies and pass-through entities and is not intended to be and should not be used by anyone other than these specified parties.

REPORT ON COMPLIANCE WITH REQUIREMENTS APPLICABLE TO EACH MAJOR STATE PROGRAM AND ON INTERNAL CONTROL OVER COMPLIANCE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE STATE OF TEXAS SINGLE AUDIT CIRCULAR

To the Board of Trustees Austin Community College District Compliance We have audited the compliance of Austin Community College District (the “College”) with the types of compliance requirements described in the “State of Texas Single Audit circular” that are applicable to each of its major federal programs for the year ended August 31, 2005. The College’s major state programs are identified in the summary of auditor’s results section of the accompanying Schedule of State findings and Questioned Costs. Compliance with the requirements of laws, regulations, contracts, and grants applicable to each of its major federal programs is the responsibility of the College’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the College’s compliance based on our audit. We conducted our audit of compliance in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America; the standards applicable to financial audits contained in Government Auditing Standards, issued by the Comptroller General of the United States; and the “State of Texas Single Audit Circular”. Those standards and Circular require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether noncompliance with the types of compliance requirements referred to above that could have a direct and material effect on a major state program occurred. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence about the College’s compliance with those requirements and performing such other procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion. Our audit does not provide a legal determination of the College’s compliance with those requirements. In our opinion, Austin Community College District complied, in all material respects, with the requirements referred to above that are applicable to each of its major state programs for the year ended August 31, 2005. Internal Control Over Compliance The management of the College is responsible for establishing and maintaining effective internal control over compliance with the requirements of laws, regulations, contracts, and grants applicable to state programs. In planning and performing our audit, we considered the College’s internal control over compliance with requirements that could have a direct and material effect on a major state program in order to determine our auditing procedures for the purpose of expressing our opinion on compliance and to test and report on the internal control over compliance in accordance with the Circular.

Our consideration of the internal control over compliance would not necessarily disclose all matters in the internal control that might be material weaknesses. A material weakness is a reportable condition in which the design or operation of one or more of the internal control components does not reduce to a relatively low level the risk that noncompliance with applicable requirements of laws, regulations, contracts, and grants caused by error or fraud that would be material in relation to a major state program being audited may occur and not be detected within a timely period by employees in the normal course of performing their assigned functions.
