CAS units' general operating fund ("OPX") services and supplies (S&S) budgets are determined as part of the budget development process during Winter term of the previous academic/fiscal year.
The S&S budgets are based on two components: supplies, and program/travel services, each having a base allocation. Additionally, the following factors, using data from the previous fiscal year, are taken into account in developing the budget for each component:
- TTF count
- NTTF FTE
- Staff FTE
- GTF terms
- Student credit hours.
Dean's Office staff will distribute the S&S budget amounts to units with the full general operating fund budgets in January-February, and will also enter these amounts in the beginning budget application.
