Operating Budget Model Review

In the President’s campus conversation report, the president states that, “I will work with the vice-presidents and the university leadership to look at our budget model to determine whether changes can and should be made to enhance transparency, to ensure that the right incentives are in place, and to minimize unintended negative consequences.”
Through discussions with the Integrated Planning Committee and with the President, it has been agreed that this review will not include a wholesale change to the budget process but an examination as to how the current process could be modified to:
-       Better inform decision making;
-       Provide better oversight and stewardship of resources;
-       Increase transparency;
-       Help ensure long term financial sustainability
-       Ensure appropriate incentives; and
-       Be simple and understandable.
To this end over the spring of 2016 we will be consulting with campus leaders through individual and group meetings to get their feedback on a number of budget process questions.
The attached backgrounder provides information on our current budget process.
In you would like to provide input into this review process please provide answers to the questions outlined in the budget process review questionnaire document and email it to
