Budget 2020

Last changed: 02 June 2021

The department has budgeted for a negative result also in 2020, this is partly due to the active investments made and is fully in line with the fact that we are going to consume capital from previous years' surplus, and partly we expect a deficit in basic education when the faculty grants have been decreased by more than SEK 1 million.

Read more information on the budget on Insidan.

In total, the department has budgeted with a deficit of - SEK 2.5 million for 2019 (- SEK 3.6 million in 2018).

The budgeted result is a combination of internally funded investments, such as departmental funding for doctoral students and the start of FTL, and areas where we currently have weak funding.

Part of the planning is that we will continue to invest in the future, which includes postdoctoral recruitments during 2020. The department is expected to have an opening capital of just under SEK 7 million, which is within SLU's framework for capital. The framework states that one may have saved capital equivalent to a maximum of 10% of turnover, and on any excess capital 10% will be paid in capital charge.

Faculty grants amount to SEK 30.9 million and personnel costs amount to SEK 36.3 million, with a slightly increased workforce of 48 full-year workforce (44.8 rolling 12-months 2019-11).

From 2019 is the costs in VHC, previously partly paid by the VH Faculty, is fully paid by the departments. These costs are distributed with SEK 385,000 on the department overhead, SEK 362,000 on premises and SEK 634,000 connected to lab premises (part on lab direct, part on premises). This affects the income requirements for the lab, as well as department overhead and distribution of premises costs.

Compensation to VH's Education Service is estimated at SEK 877,000, which is a marginal reduction.
The total overhead (premises and OH) in Research is 59.54% and for GU the overhead is 69.74%.

More detailed information on budget at the cost center level is available at Arbetsplatsen.
