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.


Following is the 2018 Provost Budget Narrative for UW Bothell. You will discover the degree offerings and FTE growth that the campus is calculating for the coming fiscal year. 

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.

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.





The Office of Institutional Planning and Budget participates in the following committees in order to have cross-unit collaboration when developing the budget for the campus.  

Chancellor's Cabinet

  • Provide policy advice and recommendations to the Chancellor on matters that pertain to UW Bothell budget planning and development process. 

Campus Council for Planning and Budgeting (CCPB) 

  • The inclusive nature of this committee (GFO, GSO, ASUWB, and Administration) is to encourage focused budget discussions, sharing of ideas/perspectives, reviews of budget proposals/processes/allocations/metrics, and provide specific planning advice and budget reports to the GFO Executive Committee.
