Budget Process


The Campus Budget Office has created the Budget Process Toolkit to guide Divisional Finance Leaders and campus finance professionals through the Divisional Budget Process. The Toolkit introduces a standardized approach to completing an internal budget and provides the tools needed to manage the process.
