Budget Committee Internal Procedures
The purpose of the Budget Committee shall be to provide a channel of communication between the Faculty Senate and the Administration on matters relating to the formulation of the University budget. The committee shall be available as an advisory agency to the President of the University in those matters relating to the budget-formulation process and will meet with the President at least once each semester to receive information about budgetary matters.
The committee should work to complete the charges of the committee as received from the Senate Chair in addition to addressing matters brought to the committee by constituents and other stakeholders.
The following is a suggested timeline.
Elect a committee chair/co-chairs and secretary and inform the Faculty Senate Chair and Secretary. The Chair also serves on the President's Administrative Council. Set monthly meeting day, time, and venue for Fall and Spring and inform the Faculty Senate Chair and Secretary for posting to the Faculty Senate webpage.
Receive charges from Faculty Senate Chair (from Chair’s report or from Executive Committee’s liaison to the Budget Committee). Then monthly accept additional charges as distributed.
Before the regular meeting in May
The committee chair should prepare a year-end report to present at the regular May Faculty Senate meeting. The report should include a summary of the committee’s progress on assigned charges as well as recommendations for charges for the next
year’s committee. When completed, forward report to the Senate Secretary for inclusion with the Senate agenda when distributed.
The committee chair shall submit a written annual report to the Faculty Senate at the May meeting.
