Budget Information


We will work with the campus academic and administrative units to guide the annual budgetary process, embrace efforts of process simplification, create an open budget environment, and develop innovative solutions.

Serving as stewards of institutional resources, the Institutional Planning and Budget Office is responsible for:

  • Forecasting revenue and expense and providing analytical context for planning assumptions and budget policies.
  • Allocating resources, monitoring their use, and reporting on results against plan.
  • Modeling the impact of program, policy, and process changes.

Budget development

Following is the 2018 Provost Budget Narrative for UW Bothell. The narrative reveals projected FTEs and planned expenditures for FY17 and FY18. 

2018 Provost Budget Narrative

The Vice Chancellor of Administration and Planning with the Senior Director for Institutional Planning & Budget met with schools, departments and groups to gather feedback in the budget planning process. The following link will take you to the institutional budget presentation that was provided in those meetings.

Budget allocations

Budgetary allocations are integral components to an annual financial plan. They indicate the level of resources the university is committing to a school or department. Without allocation limits, expenditures can exceed revenues and result in financial shortfalls. When developing budgetary allocations, all needs of the university are taken into account and decisions are made where best to allocate funds.

Below you will find the budget allocations for the University of Washington.
