University Budget Office
The Budget Office serves as a central coordinating point for budgeting, financial planning and reporting activities for the University. It directs the budgeting process by developing and disseminating budget parameters to the five campuses and other components of the University; establishes parameters for student charges and reviews proposed tuition and fee schedules; develops consolidated reports and analyses of budget and other related issues; provides general and specific support to broader administrative, management and policy initiatives initiated through the President and Senior Vice President; and serves as a liaison between the University and state and legislative agencies and other external parties.
The Budget Office works with the campuses to integrate strategic financial planning activities with ongoing operating budget, capital and other reporting activities for senior management and the Board of Trustees. The Budget Office also reviews University policies that have budgetary impact, with the goal of streamlining regular budget reporting to the Board.
