Operating Budget Review
During the fiscal year, the Budget Office asks all budget units to complete an operating budget review and forecast for their area. The purpose of this review is to project and explain any significant variances expected at the end of the fiscal year (i.e. March 31). This is an essential step in estimating overall University performance for the current fiscal year and in preparing budget projections for the next year.
A typical timeine for the budget process forecasts:
|Time Period||Type of Forecase||Explanation/Purpose|
||Review mid-year performance and explain projected variances from the budget submission|
|January||Third Quarter Review
||Review budget performance at third quarter and explain projected variances from the budget submission|
