Budget Committee


The purpose of the Budget Committee is to

  • serve as a clearinghouse of collegial discussion of budget assumptions, policies and procedures, and fiscal protocols for establishing the annual budget for Cabrillo College.

  • assist the College Planning Committee and the Vice President, Finance & Administrative Services by providing advice and recommendations related to college budget processes and annual planning assumptions.

  • help college staff and managers develop professional development activities that educate college personnel on the annual budget and budgeting process.

  • provide a forum for analyzing key budget elements on an annual basis, such as the cost of:

    salary increases
    medical and payroll benefits
    amounts specified for board-established end-of-year reserves
    post-employment obligation costs
    actuarial study assumptions and other significant budget drivers

By serving on the shared governance forum (reporting to CPC), the Budget Committee helps establish common understanding within the college on significant budget planning assumptions and helps facilitate the transmission of knowledge about the college's annual operating costs.
