Budget Assistant Meetings

Budget Assistant Meeting 9/25/2013

Effective July 1, 2013, the Finance Office is requesting that departments provide spreadsheet when making budgeting requests (aligning budgets and budgeting income) to the Finance Office for general funds. This will allow us to be able to provide better customer service when we are cover each others areas. No sheet is needed if you are sending a lump sum of money to another college or department.

There is also a space provided if you would need to un-budget income due refunds being issued or reclaimed income by the Bursar.
