Budget Units

The Budget Office supports approximately 350 budget units that comprise the university’s academic, administrative, athletic, and auxiliary functions. In addition, the Budget Office collaborates with the sixteen Budget Administrators responsible for managing the financial affairs at the university’s separate schools and divisions. Although the university employs a series of standard financial policies and procedures, the decisions for allocating funds are generally made at the school or division level, consistent with the university’s decentralized budget framework.
