Budget Committee

The Budget Committee (BC) meets the second and fourth Tuesday of the month from 2:45 – 4:00 p.m. via Zoom. BC recommends the process for the development of the guidelines for the preparation of the unrestricted and designated budgets. Through the development of annual fiscal plans, the BC recommends budgeting parameters and aligns the college’s priorities to budgets and institutional planning. The committee reviews revenue projections for the upcoming fiscal year based upon estimated and reported FTES. In times of fiscal instability, the BC reviews and recommends SPC reallocation and reductions of expenditures. Annually the BC, along with SPC, reviews the budget developed at the unit level and submitted through the appropriate planning council and makes recommendations as necessary. The BC members are responsible for communicating information related to budgeting to their appropriate constituency groups, however, Tentative and Adopted Budgets are approved by the Governing Board.

The Budget Committee reports to the Strategic Planning Council and is chaired by the Assistant Superintendent/Vice President, Finance and Administrative Services.
