Budget Policy and Planning

Budget Policy and Planning directs the development of the annual university budget, provides information for internal planning and decision-making, assists in the development of legislative strategy and facilitates the reporting requirements of the university.

The office assists the executive management team and the university community in attaining their missions by compiling and disseminating information for planning, budgeting, management and accountability. The office comprises three units:

Budget and Finance Policy

The Budget and Finance Policy unit develops university-wide budget parameters in collaboration with campus leadership, the Board of Regents and state policymakers. It is the primary fiscal liaison to state agencies and coordinates universitywide financial reporting to internal and external constituents. 

Capital Construction and Planning 

The Capital Construction and Planning unit coordinates university-wide capital construction activity and reporting for external entities. It also provides support for the Design Review Board and the Regents Capital Subcommittee, and maintains core data on CU capital construction activities.

Institutional Research 

The Institutional Research (IR) unit coordinates with the IR offices on each CU campus to provide data and analyses on students, faculty and staff, and other topics of interest to internal and external constituents.
