The purpose of Campus budgeting is to:
Provide a forecast of revenues and expenditures, that is, construct a model of how the Campus might perform financially if certain strategies, events and plans are carried out. Enable the actual financial operation of the campus to be measured against the forecast. Establish the cost constraint for a program, or operation.
The Budget Committee meets on the fourth Tuesday of every month. Meetings begin at 2:00 PM in SSA 219.
The Budget Committee shall provide CPC and the cluster planning committees with all relevant college and district fiscal data and projections along with analysis of apparent fiscal trends and alternate proposed scenarios for response to these realities. The Budget Committee may provide clusters with projected allocation targets based on prior year percentages as a planning guide, but actual cluster funding results from CPC prioritization of proposed cluster activities as the college annual plan.
The Budget Committee shall see to it that the activities authorized in the college annual plan are funded in priority order by available funding from applicable sources, and that no activity is by-passed for one having lower priority except when the costs of the former exceed funding available from applicable sources and the costs of the latter do not.
