Budget Review and Development Council

The Budget Review and Development Council was established in September, 2008 and follows a process, which is both inclusive and transparent, while developing a budget which closely aligns with the mission of the university and the Texas A&M University System. The Council builds upon the existing strategic planning process by linking consensus-based goals to the university budget. The Council engages in a variety of activities, including but not limited to:

  • Overall objectives of the process
  • Expectations from students, the System, the State, and the public
  • The external fiscal environment
  • Current practices with regard to internal budget processes
  • Priorities from the Planning Implementation Team
  • Fund sources
  • Mandated expenditures
  • Salary plan
  • Budget assumptions
  • Possible fee increases
  • Possible new fees
  • Possible tuition increase

The Council’s work culminates with the submission of a recommended budget to the president, which will provide the basis for subsequent development of detailed budgets at the unit level.
