Growth Trends in UC Administration (Cont)

This MSP group grew faster not just than ladder rank faculty, but faster than most other categories.  In 1994, systemwide the ratio of researchers to this group used to be 2 to 1 now it is 3 to 2. The figures are 10 to 1 vs. 5 to 1 if we take the entire academic staff and 34 to 1 vs 16 to 1 if we take all FTEs.
It is also possible that many of the new MSP positions have been financed by external funds. The data are there at UCOP but not readily available.

Yet, according to the last available UC Budget in 2007-08 10% of our Core funds was spent on "institutional support" (which includes 5 areas: Executive Management (mostly SMGs), Fiscal Operations, General Administrative Services, Logistical Services and Community Relations)
compared to 9% on academic support and 5% on student services. The Core funds expenditures were only 60% of all the money spent on institutional support. Institutional support might have declined as a percentage of total expenditure, but as far as I can see, it probably increased as a percent of our Core fund (because our Core fund is a much smaller percentage of our total expenditure now). Between 2004-05 and 2006-07 money spent on it grew by 31%.
