Budgets are financial documents that institutions use to plan for their financial future.   Budgeting serves three very important functions:

a)      To forecast income and expenditures (and hence, profitability)

b)      To assist in decision-making

c)       To monitor business performance

As such, the development of PSU’s budget requires great care, consideration, and involvement from the PSU community.

    • The budget schedule
    • The budget request process
    • Key budget parameters
  • A link to the budget request form.
