Budget & Capital Planning
The primary goal of Budget & Capital Planning is to provide timely and accurate support to the University's operating and capital budget planning, development, monitoring, and control processes. This goal is accomplished through a series of function responsibilities which can be grouped into four categories:
- Supporting the University's budget planning and development processes through multi-year enrollment and budget forecasting/modeling,
- Performing budget maintenance and control activities which include monitoring of the budget on an on-going basis, formal quarterly budget forecasting, centralized review of salary related actions, and an analysis of year-end results versus budgets,
- Providing budget support services, and
- Performing recurring (annual) studies and special (one-time) analyses.
Budget & Capital Planning is part of Budget, Planning & Institutional Research (BPIR) which jointly reports to the Senior Vice President for Operations and the University Provost, guiding and supporting the University’s strategic and budget planning processes; advises on financial initiatives, cost analyses and financial forecasting; and oversees institutional research activities.
