Budget Office

Welcome to the Budget Office! Our mission is to serve as a planning resource for campus leadership and all UCI units. We provide analysis, reporting, and financial modeling expertise. In addition to assisting with resource management needs, we advise on fiscal policies and procedures, oversee fee and income activities, and perform financial and budgetary analysis for current and long-range planning related to operating and capital budgets.

Services include:

  • development of the indirect cost rate proposal
  • review of campus recharge rates and approval of new income activities
  • student fee oversight
  • base budget development, monitoring, and reporting
  • staffing reconciliation
  • capital budget oversight
  • unrestricted fund management
  • the campus budget allocation process

The Budget Office provides staff to campus committees including: the Council on Planning and Budget, the Academic Planning Group, capital project Budget Advisory Committees, Recharge Review Committee, Academic Senior Managers, and the Student Fee Advisory Committee.


The Budget Office strives to accomplish our goals through mutual support and close campus partnerships. We are committed to sharing information and helping others to increase their budget knowledge, identify problems and help solve them, while maintaining a positive service attitude.
