Budget Allocation Model Overview

In August 2019, Chancellor Plowman assembled a group of faculty and staff to begin redesigning our budget model.

Provost and Senior Vice Chancellor David Manderscheid and Senior Vice Chancellor for Finance and Administration Chris Cimino are serving as co-chairs of the steering committee. This committee will examine the university’s current approach to resource allocation and develop a set of recommendations for a new resource management, allocation and planning process. The new Budget Allocation Model will achieve the following goals:

  • Align resources with strategic priorities
  • Create greater transparency and accountability
  • Give units more control over their own budgets

Steering committee updates will be posted to this site, and shared with Deans, faculty senate and campus fiscal officers.

The January 28th Open Forum  presentation is available at the Key Meeting Highlights link on this website. A panel discussion with representatives from other universities shared their experiences implementing similar budget models. Guest panelists included:

Dr. Tim Boosinger
Auburn University
Provost Emeritus

Dr. Lynn Videka
University of Michigan
Dean, School of Social Work

Dr. M.A. Venkataramanan
Indiana University Bloomington
Vice Provost for Finance and Strategy

Provost Manderscheid and Sr. VC Cimino will hold open office hours at the Student Union room 260 for faculty and staff to drop in and ask questions about the Budget Allocation Model on the following date:

  • January 29, 2020 – 11:00-12:00
