Financial Review Overview as of FY17
Financial Review is an event within the budget process that occurs two times a year. The fall and spring financial reviews include formal meetings with senior management, deans, and business managers to review each units financial performance. While the primary focus of the two meetings varies, the feedback and discussions assist management in planning the budget for the upcoming year and the forecasts for the next two years. The spring financial review is an informal review with the Budget and Financial Planning Office and division business managers that requires updates of each unit's financial data in Oracle.
Financial Review Deadlines
Due dates and times are communicated to each division's business manager through a letter sent out by the Budget and Financial Planning Office. The dates and times are also posted on the budget and financial planning web site.
