Virginia Tech Financial Report 2021-2022

12. Summary of Long-term Indebtedness Bonds Payable The university has issued two categories of bonds pursuant to Article X, Section 9, Constitution of Virginia . Section 9(d) bonds are revenue bonds which are limited obligations of the university, payable exclusively from pledged general revenues, and which are not legal or moral debts of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Pledged general revenues include general fund appropriations, student tuition and fees, facilities and administrative (indirect) cost recoveries, auxiliary enterprise revenues, and other revenues not required by law to be used for another purpose. The university has issued section 9(d) bonds directly through underwriters and also participates in the Public Higher Education Financing Program (Pooled Bond Program) created by the Virginia Gen eral Assembly in 1996. Through the Pooled Bond Program, VCBA issues section 9(d) bonds with the proceeds used to purchase debt obligations (notes) of the university and other institutions of higher education. The notes are secured by pledged general revenues of the university. JP Morgan is the university’s dealer and BNY Mellon is the issuing and paying agent. This short-term debt finances capital projects on an interim basis pending long-term bond financing. 10. Commonwealth Capital Reimbursement Programs and Capital Gifts The commonwealth has established several programs to provide state-sup ported institutions of higher education with bond proceeds for financing the acquisition and replacement of instructional and research equipment and facilities. During fiscal year 2022, funding has been provided to the university from three programs (21st Century program, Central Main tenance Reserve program and the Equipment Trust Fund program) managed by the Virginia College Building Authority (VCBA). The VCBA issues bonds and uses the proceeds to reimburse the university and other institutions of higher education for expenses incurred in the acquisition of equipment and facilities. The university also receives capital funding for equipment and facilities from private gifts, grants, and contracts.
