The Operating budget report is submitted to the Board of Trustees every year for approval. The Board of Trustees use this report as a tool to ensure that the University is properly managing its funds. The Operating budget format mirrors that of the financial statements. The Operating budget is comprised of 2-years of actuals, which are directly off of the financial statements, the operating budget submitted for the current fiscal year, and the projected operating budget for the next fiscal year; both are done on an accrual basis. The University uses assumptions provided by the President's office, as well as, campus assumptions on enrollment and strategic initiatives in developing the operating budget. Several supplementary schedules are submitted along with the Operating budget: Spending by type of expense or natural classification, Summary of Full-time equivalent employees, and headcount/FTE student enrollment.
