FY15 UAF Budget Request Guidelines & Templates
The FY15 BOR approved guidelines for the FY15 Planning & Budget process are posted below.
- Operating (High Priority Academic Programs & Services)
- Capital (Facility, Technology, Research & Maintenance)
A shift from the "hold the line" message in FY14, the FY15 guidelines emphasize cost containment in priority programs.
Alignment with SDI Themes is now specified (rather than implied in FY14) and there is a strong message of "capped growth" with a focus on reliance on internal offsets vs. general fund increases.
On the capital side, implementation of the UA Building Fund (UBF) and targeting a reduction in deferred maintenance is noted.
