Budget Planning and Analysis

Budget, Planning, & Administration

University Budget Committee (UBC)

Appointed by and serving at the discretion of the President, the University Budget Committee (UBC) is an advisory group responsible for making recommendations for stewarding, optimizing, and investing the university’s financial resources in ways that strategically advance the goals and mission of the university.

Chaired by Interim Provost Michael Johnson and Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Gerald Hector, the committee includes members from across the university (faculty, staff and students) and is charged with making recommendations to the President regarding budget model allocations and strategic investments based on available resources. Through the committee’s collective leadership, they will influence the future excellence, productivity, and impact of UCF through the optimal use of limited resources.

UBC Budget Philosophy

An effective budgeting process transforms strategic goals into achievable operating plans, and:

  • properly and continuously aligns resources with university wide strategic priorities;
  • employs an “all-funds” approach;
  • maintains fiscal responsibility with those closest to operational decisions;
  • provides a degree of predictability to promote multi-year planning on a university-wide basis;
  • increases communication, transparency, and accountability;
  • provides timely funding recommendations to the President.

Central Support Unit Allocation Committee (CSUAC)

Appointed by and serving at the discretion of the President, the Central Support Unit Allocation Committee (CSUAC) was formed in November 2020 as a companion group to the UBC to support the implementation and ongoing success of UCF’s incentive-based budget model.  Chaired by Interim Provost Michael Johnson and Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Gerald Hector, it is an advisory committee that makes recommendations to the UBC regarding central support unit (CSU) budget and cost allocations.

All CSUAC recommendations will be thoroughly vetted by the UBC for recommendation to the President. This allows for transparency, accountability, and data-informed decision making.

Information about UCF’s new budget model may be found here.

 

CSUAC Essential Duties

  • working with CSUs to develop and implement appropriate Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to measure performance;
  • facilitating the development of service level agreements (SLAs) between primary units and select CSUs, and making suggestions for performance improvement;
  • reviewing CSU budget proposals, including strategic objectives, service level demands, and workforce plans; and
  • submitting unified CSU budget and cost allocation recommendations and elevating any unresolved issues to the UBC.
