Budget Information

The Office of Academic Budget and Personnel, located in Phillips Hall Office of the Deans, is part of the Office of Academic Affairs that supports the Provost.  This office supports the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and the general operations of the division through program analysis, budget preparation, scenario forecasting, financial records management consistent with "best financial management standards and budgetary practices" and responsible resource tracking and usage assessments.

UNC Asheville follows North Carolina State regulations in formulating all general operating, renovation, repair, capital or other fund budgets. In preparation for each biennial budget, the Office of State Budget and Management (OSBM) holds meetings with state agencies to review agency-specific program inventories and to discuss how information is to be collected for the budget development process. OSBM issues instructions for the preparation and oversees submission of budgets as required by the General Assembly on a biennium or annual basis.
