President Mark Hamilton, Interim Vice President for Finance Jim Lynch, and Director of Budget and Institutional Research Pat Pitney will discuss with the committee the budget and reporting process for the university including the various budget cycles, the sources and distribution of university funds, and funds available for specific university activities.

A. Overview of Reporting Structure

Development of the (Board of Regents) BOR reporting units and reporting structure was initiated by David Creamer, former vice president for finance and planning, in response to requests from the board for financial reporting at a functional level. The BOR reporting units attempt to provide consistency across time and among organizations. This report provides a common structure for reporting finance, student, and human resource information. As a result, it should also be useful in reporting performance indicators and measures. A sample report based on the BOR unit structure will be presented by Pat Pitney at the meeting.

B. Overview of Performance Reporting

Pat Pitney will also provide information regarding performance measures and indicators, and how this data may be incorporated into the BOR reporting structure described above.
