The guiding principle for budget reform is to develop and incorporate a system that permits colleges/schools to define their paths while allowing the campus to invest strategically. The system should be integrated with campus strategic priorities, work across disciplines, and support all mission areas. It should also have the flexibility to allow for investments at the college and university levels that support our values and University-wide excellence. Based on these fundamental principles, we have entitled the budgeting framework Integrated and Value-Centered Budgeting.
- Integrated and Value-Centered Budgeting White Paper was drafted in December 2017.
- Meetings with deans and department heads focused on financial reporting best practices.
- Budgeting Reform Implementation Committee was charged to provide recommendations on model parameters and implementation considerations to the Steering Committee, Chancellor, and Provost.
- Periodic meetings are convened with the Campus Budgeting Reform Steering Committee to assess reports from the campus working groups on budgeting model components and data.
