FY16 Budget Development Resources

Sustainable Academic Business Plan Goals and Institutional Risks: Successful requests for Provost Reinvestment Funds (PRF) will make meaningful contributions to institutional strategic plans, drive student support and student service missions, and correlate directly to the long-term financial health of the University or its efforts to mitigate institutional risk. Please see the following document for more information about the University’s Sustainable Academic Business Plan (SABP) goals and top institutional risks.

Tuition Revenue and Salary Increase Models: These models allow the user to see the likely cost (based on budgeted GOF/DOF salaries) of salaries increases for FY16.

Please direct any questions about these models to Carol Diem.

Additional Resources and Forums: The FY16 budget development request contains a number of new elements. As such, we wish to provide resources to support all units in completing this work in the timeframe allotted. The following resources are available to you:

  1. OPB maintains historical responses to similar questions from the FY12 annual budget development if you need assistance responding to the first two questions of the FY16 budget development template. Please reach out to your unit’s OPB budget analyst if you wish to review these forms.
  2. If you have any questions or concerns as you read through these materials, please feel free to reach out to Sarah Hall, Amy Floit or your unit’s OPB budget analyst. They are available to help assist in any way they can.
  3. OPB will be holding several open forums to discuss this budget process generally and the administrative carryover policy specifically. These forums are open to anyone, and will be held at the following dates and locations:
    • Thursday, Oct. 9 at 2:00pm in Gerberding Hall, Room 142
    • Friday, Oct. 17 at 9:00am in the UW Tower, T-22 Glass Conference Room
