Budget/Financial Planning & Analysis


Welcome to the CWU budget page, where you’ll find information about Central’s new budgeting model. As you know, effective July 1, 2017 the university will shift to a new budget management model and process known as Responsibility Center Management (RCM)/Activity Based Budgeting (ABB).

RCM/ABB are designed to:

  • Put greater emphasis and clearer authority and accountability at the level of the Deans and Vice Presidents, thereby providing colleges with more ownership of the overall budgeting process
  • Enhance transparency about both revenues and the costs of operating our institution
  • Provide motivation to achieve and optimize revenue generation and cost effective practices
  • Encourage innovation
  • Challenge silos
