Integrated Budget Model Initiative - FY 2019 Budget Cycle

In Fall 2017, CCSU’s Integrated Planning Council (IPC) charged a workgroup [see below] with piloting an integrated budgeting process. The workgroup is co-chaired by Charlene Casamento, Chief Financial Officer, and Robert S. Wolff, Chair of the University Planning and Budget Committee (UPBC). This new budget model applies zero-based budgeting principles to help CCSU more effectively steward its financial resources. President Zulma Toro announced this initiative to the campus community in September. Since then the workgroup, working with Matthew J. Ceppi, Ed.D., a higher education consultant for the firm of CliftonLarsonAllen, has designed and approved the budget templates that appear below. Four academic and two administrative departments will begin the pilot in November. The UPBC Committee will review the results of this pilot program and report its conclusions to the IPC (via the President), the Faculty Senate, and the campus community.
