Regents' Finance Committee to Consider BRAC Residency Waivers for Defense Contractors, Nov. 16
ADELPHI, Md. (November 13, 2006) – A proposal to waive certain residency requirements
for defense contractor employees relocating to Maryland under BRAC (Base
Realignment and Closure Commission) 2005 is among the topics to be addressed at
the upcoming meeting of the Committee on Finance of the University System of
Maryland (USM) Board of Regents. The public session of the meeting begins at 10:45 a.m., Thursday, November 16, 2006. It will be held in the open area on the 7th
Floor of the Albin O. Kuhn Library, University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), 1000 Hilltop Circle, Catonsville, MD.
At its October 27th meeting,
the Board of Regents moved to waive certain residency requirements for civilian
employees of the U.S. Armed Forces (including spouses and dependent children)
who move to Maryland as a result of BRAC. The waiver allows these
employees and their families to qualify for in-state tuition rates without a
12-month residency requirement. The new resolution would extend this waiver to
employees (including spouses and dependent children) of defense contractors
transferred under BRAC. Other action items before the committee are
consideration of the University of Baltimore’s Facilities Master Plan 2004-2014 and the renewal of
system-wide contracts for scientific supplies.
