 Budget Authority Training

Budget authority live training is held every other year for all campus budget authorities and their staff. The purpose of this training is to present an overview of the university's service and support departments, and provide an opportunity to meet and interact with leaders from these departments. This training is not meant to be a detailed technical training, but a general exposure to the service and support areas to familiarize our budget authorities with the people, responsibilities and key focus of these areas.

Budget authority live training for FY 16 – 17 is now concluded. Thanks to those of you who attended, and also to our presenters and their staffs who worked so tirelessly to make this a success for all involved.
