The FY16 CSU Channel Islands budget provides an update on budget actions for the current fiscal year and details allocation recommendations that protect the core missions of teaching and scholarly activity.

The budget development process takes place at nearly every level within the university starting with initiatives and programmatic needs and ends with projecting campus-­wide fixed costs such as benefit, insurance and utility increases. CI’s budgets are decentralized with divisional accountability to the President and the Chief Budget Officer of the university. While general guidelines for spending exist, divisions and units maintain considerable autonomy in managing their respective budgets.

A Strategic Resource Planning Committee (SRPC) was appointed during 2012‐13 as a subcommittee of the President’s Planning and Policy Council (PPPC) to begin to strengthen the relationship between campus planning and budgeting. The SRPTF is co‐chaired by the Provost and the Vice President for Division of Business & Financial Affairs. Information may be found at the Strategic Resource Planning Committee webpage.

No new and separate capital funds for new buildings are expected to be authorized by the state. However, as a growing campus with a variety of space, renewal and deferred maintenance needs, the campus requires these kinds of critical investments as reflected in the capital budget summary.
