Summary of MassDOT Funding


The following reports document EOT/MassDOT state funding for the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy for fiscal years (FY) 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013.  The uses of state funds and reporting requirements have changed over this period; and in some fiscal years the State’s actual amount provided changed mid-year.  To make the history and context clear, we have summarized them for each year.

MassDOT contribution FY10-FY13, as budgeted and as provided

 

FY10:  $2.983M

  • Consistent with the Greenway legislation (Chapter 306 of the Laws of 2008), the State contributed 50% of the unrestricted operating budget and capital budget for that year.
  • EOT and the Conservancy agreed  that, as an annual accounting of the use of State funds, the Conservancy would create a special Statement of Functional Expenses annually showing the uses of state funds during the Conservancy’s annual audit process.  These are posted on the Documents page of this website. 
  • As the year progressed, it was clear that the economic downturn would continue for some time and would likely impact all of the park's revenue sources.  We rolled over unspent State and Conservancy funds to FY11.

FY11:  $2.23M ($1,786,500 in cash and pledge of $443,500 of in-kind support)

  • In response to fiscal constraints, MassDOT committed to make its annual contribution in two forms: cash and in-kind support, including office space and in-kind operational support from its departments.  As the year progressed, MassDOT was not able to provide the planned level of support from its departments, compelling the Conservancy to contract more services out for an added expense.  MassDOT reimbursed $92,875 to the Conservancy, and reduced the value of the in-kind contribution from $443,500 to $350,625.
  • MassDOT directed the use of FY11 state funds to the care of the state asset (maintenance and horticulture functions).
  • MassDOT and the Conservancy agreed on a quarterly reporting format and schedule, in addition to the special Statement of Functional Expenses that can be found on the Documents page of this website.
  • $127K of State pledged FY11 in-kind support rolled over into FY12.
  • A payroll schedule for calendar 2011 follows that lists full time and part time staff members whose compensation was supported, all or in part, by the MA Department of Transportation. The Conservancy is a private non-profit corporation and its employees are private employees, not public employees.  As has been our policy, however, and consistent with MassDOT procedures and the Conservancy’s enabling statute, we provide information relating to the use and expenditure of public funding as appropriate.

FY12:  $2.119M ($1,838,500 in cash and $279,750 of in-kind support)

  • The Conservancy provided a detailed FY12 budget forecast for care of the state asset (M&H) based upon a 5% decrease in State funds.
  • MassDOT issued a Subsidy Agreement Amendment to reflect agreed-upon cash and in-kind commitments.
  • A forecast payroll schedule for calendar 2012 as of May 31, 2011 follows that lists full time and part time staff members whose compensation was supported, all or in part, by the MA Department of Transportation. The Conservancy is a private non-profit corporation and its employees are private employees, not public employees.  As has been our policy, however, and consistent with MassDOT procedures and the Conservancy’s enabling statute, we provide information relating to the use and expenditure of public funding as appropriate.
  • $117K of State pledged in-kind support (from FY11) rolled over into FY13.
