Budget and Planning Book and Website launched
The University of Manitoba Budget and Planning Book is now available on the new U of M Planning and Budget website.
The new Budget and Planning Book and website comprise a comprehensive resource of the university’s financial information and budget and planning decision-making processes. The principles used to guide the development of these important resources are transparency, comprehensiveness and accountability.
Over the past six months, significant effort has been directed into sharing the U of M’s financial information and processes, responding to questions and concerns that have arisen due to the budgetary challenges facing the university.
The new site and book will ensure information about the U of M’s budget and planning processes is available and accessible to all members of the university community, along with other stakeholders.
Vice-President (Administration) Paul Kochan says, “These resources have been developed not only to ensure that the university community continues to receive the organization’s financial and planning information, which assists in decision-making, but also to increase understanding of the university’s fiscal challenges, and to create linkages to all related and relevant information. The ultimate goal is budget and planning transparency and clarity, aided by information easily accessed from the University of Manitoba’s website home page.
“We encourage you to visit the inaugural website and to review the new Budget and Planning Book, which we hope will be a useful resource. Feedback from the university community on the inaugural Budget and Planning Book and website is valuable, and we want to hear from you about how we can improve the website and Budget and Planning Book for future years.”
The Budget and Planning Book includes a helpful “Setting the Stage” section that details the sources of university revenue, how the money is spent and how decisions are made about where the money goes. The book also has a detailed glossary with commonly used budgeting and planning terms.
