The Finance Group's Operating Budget and Academic Planning department leads UC Merced's annual budget process.
UC Merced uses an all-funds budget that clearly identifies revenue available to support campus operations and capital projects, and clearly identifies how this revenue is allocated.
An all-funds budget provides the campus with a critical tool to create a stable financial model for advancing the mission of the university and addressing its most critical needs. Additionally, and importantly, it is designed to provide transparency with respect to UC Merced’s current financial state, existing challenges and future plans.
