Introducing the Budget Process Toolkit

The Campus Budget Office has created the Budget Process Toolkit to assist with the internal budget process for Divisions. The Toolkit introduces a standardized approach to completing an internal budget and provides the tools needed to manage the process. It includes checklists, sample agendas, high level timelines, best practices, work examples, and templates to assist with leading a successful budget process.
The Portfolio Budget Officers are working directly with the Divisional Finance Leaders (this is the CAO or CFO) to introduce this tool to each Division. 
If you have any questions about this Toolkit, please contact your Portfolio Budget Officer.
