The Budget Office, which is part of the Business and Finance Division, manages the development of the University’s annual operating budget and the ongoing monitoring of revenues and expenditures.

As part of the budget development process, the Office focuses on ensuring that the sources and the uses of funds budgeted are in alignment with the University’s strategic objectives, mandating that the nature and the amount of budgeted expenses support the institution’s efforts to optimize its students’ educational experience.

Throughout the year, the Office works closely with departments across the University to evaluate revenue and expenditure streams in comparison with limits prescribed within the operating budget. It also conducts financial and operational analyses for certain new and existing programs, activities and operations to evaluate profitability and/or efficiency.
