About Us

Planning for the future and stewards of UC Merced's financial resources

The Office of Financial Planning & Analysis (FP&A) provides support for the campus operating budget decision-making process.  We also coordinate strategic and long-range planning efforts during the earliest phases of program and project development for UC Merced’s capital improvement program.

  • Manage new budget appropriations from sources external to the department (e.g., new requests)
  • Perform long-term fund management
  • Analyze revenue trends and project forward-looking revenue streams
  • Analyze budget and expenditures necessary to continue existing level of operations and activities
