General Fund Strategic Budget Planning

Page address: https://www.mnsu.edu/planning/sbp.html

During the 2015-2016 academic year, the Joint Budget, Planning and Assessment & Evaluation Sub-Meet and Confer engaged in conversation reflecting on the University’s 2-year series of budget reductions.  The budget reduction process employed was heavily reliant on an across-the-board method where reductions were fairly evenly distributed across Divisions.  While this method was successful in generating base budget reductions for the University, several shortcomings were noted by the Joint body.  In Fall 2016, the Joint body recommended a process, timeline, and the formation of three work groups to bring forward a recommendation outlining a General Fund Strategic Budget Planning Process for the University.  The Joint body's recommendation was adopted by the University in May 2017 for implementation.
