Budget and Planning

The Budget and Planning Office is responsible for the implementation and oversight of the institutional operating, capital budgets and long-range plan.  The annual operating budget is approved by the Finance Committee in June of each year which reflects any approved adjustments, economic assumptions and strategic initiatives.  

Our key services include the following:

  • Budget Reporting:  Budget information is available through Adaptive Insights, a reporting tool that allows budget managers to view their budgets and transactions easily. Training is available on a monthly basis for new and existing employees. 
  • Budget Requests and Transfers:  Working with the designated budget manager for each college division, our goal is to ensure budgets are aligned with divisional priorities and needs (subject to resource availability).  New budget requests can be submitted via an incremental budget request, and should be in accordance with college policies and procedures.
  •  Position Changes/Updates:  Budget works in collaboration with Human Resources on the approval of new positions and position changes.  All position changes or additions require the approval of the Divisional Vice President or Leader prior to approvals by Human Resources and/or Finance. 
  • Budget Forecasts and Long-Range Planning:  The Office supports the annual forecast and long-range planning process that informs current and future budgeting cycles.
