For accounting purposes, the Authority isconsidered a blended component unit of Midlands TechnicalCollege.

The Board of the Authority consists ofthe members of the Midlands Technical CollegeCommission. The activity of the Authority is blended in thefinancial statements of the College.The new theatre facility is available to communityorganizations.In April of 2011, the College and Community officials brokeground on the Engineering Technology and Sciences wingof Midlands Technical College’s Center of Excellence forTechnology located on the Northeast Campus in RichlandCounty. The building will be a 68,000-square-foot state-ofthe-art classroom and lab facility preparing students forcareers in regional technology-based industries to includethe MTC nuclear systems technology program, fuel celltechnician program, engineering transfer, and additionalengineering technology courses of study. The new wing isscheduled to open in early 2013.The College’s strategic planning process includes extensiveplanning in preparation of the budget. The original operatingbudget is based on preliminary estimates and is approved bythe Commission in May of each year. During its Octobermeeting, the Commission approves the revised budget,which is prepared after major sources of revenue are known.The College’s governing board, the Commission, isappointed by the Governor of South Carolina upon therecommendation of the legislative delegations fromRichland and Lexington counties.There are 12Commissioners who are appointed for four-year terms.Currently, there are five Commissioners from LexingtonCounty and seven from Richland County. Officers areelected every two years, with the chairpersonship alternatedbetween the two counties.An annual facility plan, which outlines the needs foroperations and maintenance of plant facilities, is used for thebudget requests to the counties. A longer-term facility planis prepared, reviewed and updated annually as the College’sinitiatives are revised.State law mandates Richland and Lexington counties toprovide sufficient funding to build, maintain and operate theCollege’s physical plant. The division of financialresponsibility is based on population and is used each yearfor budget request purposes. The current distribution is 60percent for Richland County and 40 percent for LexingtonCounty; however, based on the 2010 Census there was aslight shift in the distribution of 40.56 percent for LexingtonCounty and 59.44 percent for Richland County effectivefiscal year 2011-2012.The College maintains controls in line-item budgets, budgettransfer restrictions and in the use of an encumbranceaccounting system. These budgetary controls ensurecompliance with the annual budget adopted by the governingboard. As demonstrated by the financial statements andschedules included in the financial section of this report, theCollege management continues to meet its responsibility forsound fiscal administration.Fairfield County also provides financial support by fundingthe difference between the in-county tuition rate and the instate tuition rate for its residents who attend the College.Fairfield County provided 1.1 percent of the total countysupport for the current fiscal year.Midlands Technical College is part of South Carolina’sprimary government and is included in the ComprehensiveAnnual Financial Report of the State.The Midlands Technical College Foundation, Inc., (theFoundation) is a nonprofit organization that was formedAugust 12, 1970, to benefit and support education atMidlands Technical College. It is a legally separate taxexempt component unit of the College. The Foundation actsprimarily as a fundraising organization to supplement theresources that are available to the College in support of itsprograms. A separate Board of Directors governs theFoundation. The 39-member board of the Foundation isself-perpetuating and consists of graduates and friends of theCollege. The activity of the Foundation is includedseparately in the College’s financial statements.ECONOMIC CONDITIONSIn fiscal year 2010-2011, economically the College andother South Carolina higher education institutionsexperienced budget declines from the state. Over the pastdecade, MTC has experienced state budget reductionstotaling about 58 percent over the last three years. TheCollege will enter in fiscal year 2011-2012 without anybudget reductions from the state.-3-

Second, the College began offering credit classes on theNortheast Campus for the first time in the campus history.Offering credit classes on the Northeast Campus not onlyimproves access for the citizens of the College’s servicearea, it offers a greater opportunity for the College to expandits general education offering on the remaining campuses. Astrong transfer program of general education classesprovides positive cash flow from student revenue while atthe same time enabling stronger technical educationprograms.MTC continues to address state budget reductions byexamining its processes and practices for ways to becomemore efficient. Significant investments were made intechnology designed to automate functions in manyadministrative areas of the College, including humanresources, business office and student services. In additionto implementing efficiency strategies, the Commissionapproved a comprehensive tuition and fee plan that includedfull linear charges for students taking above twelve credithours. The new linear model complements the differentialfee model implemented by the College the previous fiscalyear.Third, the College is undertaking a major study of itsmarketing practices. A consultant has been hired that willconduct customized and comprehensive market research,provide actionable recommendations for best practiceapproaches to better brand, recruit, market andcommunicate with, retain students and facilitate thedevelopment of an integrated brand strategy. The marketresearch should lead the College positioning itself for thefuture among its various market segments to betterunderstand the current educational needs of citizens of theCollege’s service area. By building brand loyalty, theCollege hopes to increase the number of people selecting theCollege as a first choice for their educational needs, increasethe perception and actual knowledge of the communityregarding the College’s role in economic development andjob creation, and increase the financial and advocacy supportreceived by the College from the community.During fiscal year 2010-2011, the counties continued theirsupport by fully funding the College’s budget requests toreflect inflation and growth of the College’s physical plant.The counties also maintained their commitment to theCollege’s capital and debt-service needs by funding therequested amounts.The state’s economic outlook for fiscal year 2011-2012 isexpected to improve slightly based on the informationreleased by the Board of Economic Advisors (BEA). Thestate should experience some revenue growth, however, theCollege expects that the State’s other priorities will befunded first.State budget officials indicate that the State does not haveadequate reserves should the state revenue not makeprojections. Should the State’s budget officials declarerevenues to be lagging, the College is virtually assured ofintra-fiscal-year budget reductions. The Commission andadministration, in developing the current year budget,developed recurring contingencies should the College haveto return funds to the State.CERTIFICATE OF ACHIEVEMENT FOREXCELLENCE IN FINANCIAL REPORTINGThe Government Finance Officers Association of the UnitedStates and Canada (GFOA) awarded a Certificate ofAchievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting toMidlands Technical College for its Comprehensive AnnualFinancial Report (CAFR) for the fiscal year ended June 30,2010.

We believe our current report continues toconform to the Certificate of Achievement programrequirements, and we are submitting it to GFOA.The College undertook several major initiatives designed tofurther its goal to minimize the effect of state budgetreductions.
