|Statement of Purpose|
The purpose of this resolution is to provide authorization, pursuant to Idaho Code §33-3805A, to the State Board of Education to allow Idaho State University to proceed with the purchase of 102,000 square feet within the former Jabil Circuit building located in Meridian at 1303 East Central Drive, and now owned by Joint School District #2.
Funding for the purchase will come from private foundation funds and institutional bonds. There is no fiscal impact to the General Fund. When the purchase is complete and the state assumes ownership, Idaho State University will request additional General Funds for occupancy costs which involve custodial, utility and other costs associated with operating general education space within the facility. Based on the current formula, these costs are estimated to be approximately $656,000. In addition, approval of this resolution does not preclude Idaho State University from requesting General Funds or Permanent Building funds in the future for the expansion of this facility.
