Admin Manual — Departmental Budget

Allocations and Expenditures

Each department receives annual budget allocations for salary and general expense from the College. The College may also authorize non-recurring allocations for specific critical needs during the fiscal year.

The DEO manages the budget by balancing the department's expenditures with its allocations, working within the framework of the University Accounting System. The DEO also analyzes the department's patterns of expenditure and plans future budgets.

Many departments have access to funds in UI Foundation accounts, and the DEO is responsible for monitoring expenditures from these accounts. A department may also have external grants for particular research projects.
