JFC Budget Process for
Fiscal Year 2017-2018 (FY18)
Every year, organizations are able to receive JFC funds to subsidize their expenses. This year's Joint Funding Committee (JFC) is responsible for allocating funds to organizations for Fiscal Year 18 (FY18: Fall '17 Spring '18).
First, organizations that are seeking funding will be required to fill out a JFC Declaration of Intent. They will then be assigned a representative with whom they will meet and consult for their budget. They will then submit this budget on the Budgeting Module (online platform used throughout the JFC Allocation process). The Joint Funding Committee will then meet and determine the allocation for all the organizations. Once the allocations are decided, they will be released online and the organizations will be notified by the SBVPF. Organizations will have the opportunity to appeal their allocation. One the appeals process is finished, the SBVPF will present the budget allocations to Senate and GSA for ratification. After the allocations are ratified, they become the official JFC budgets for the organizations the following year and the organizations will be notified.
JFC Declaration of Intent was available mid-late Fall Semester (Note: Late submissions of Declaration of Intent is allowed until 12/9/16 at 11:59 PM. Link available below.)
