UW-IT’s annual budget for fiscal year 2017

AdobeStock_76956119_WMBasic Bundle

UW-IT manages an annual budget of approximately $115.8 million to provide support to the University community through the service areas listed below. Almost 50 percent ($53.2 million) of UW-IT’s FY 2017 budget is dedicated to providing a basic bundle of critical IT services to all UW students, faculty and staff.

These basic services are supported by $32.5 million in UW central funds and $20.7 milli from the Technology Recharge Fee (TRF). This fee was established in FY 2011 to provide a sustainable, long-term funding model for IT. It replaced an outdated recharge model based on phone lines, which did not fully cover the cost of services. The TRF is a per-capita rate paid by all UW academic and administrative units and UW Medical Centers. UW-IT is committed to using our resources efficiently and effectively to meet the present and future needs of the UW community, and to providing transparency and accountability in our use of resources.
