The Budget Office is responsible for the development and oversight of the University’s annual operating budget. It provides assistance in determining the optimal use of the University’s limited resources to achieve the goals outlined in the University’s strategic plan in accordance with the University’s mission.
By providing the University community with financial data, the Office supports the University's decision-making, as well as the analyses of actual performance against the strategic plan. It assists in identifying efficiencies, new revenue sources and cost containment measures.
Additionally, the Budget Office ensures that the University maintains a sound financial status while operating within the budget limitations established by the South Carolina General Assembly and the University of South Carolina Board of Trustees.
