BUDGET TRAINING (including ground-up budget request-building, Informer Budget use, other important budget topics)

For all budget managers, viewers, payment request form completers, etc.

Your best starting point is to meet with your division's Budget Coordinating Committee (BCC) rep listed below to get a feel for your own division's recurring deadlines, find out what your division submitted to be included in the current academic & fiscal year budget and if your VP has changed any of that since then, get an overview of your donor funds and how to get more data on how to use them, and get a brief overview of using Informer Budget.

Training is currently on hold. You'll receive email notices about any future training and/or with instructions about your role in ground-up budgeting. In the meantime, your BCC rep and the FAQ section on this accounting and budget website can help guide you through using the Informer Budget system.

College division vice presidents (budget officers) assign budget managers and/or budget viewers to budget, donor, and grant accounts administered by their respective divisions.

Hiring managers should contact their respective division Budget Coordinating Committee (BCC) rep listed below if they want a new employee to have access to any college accounts inside Informer Budget and/or if they want new employees to be able to approve & sign payment request forms.

You should contact your BCC rep if you think changes are needed to multi-function device (MFD) account numbers charged when you print and/or copy on college MFD machines (the default account and/or if you need additional accounts to which you can charge specific print & copy jobs).

 

To know how you became assigned to any particular account, or to request changes to account assignments based on the following schedule, you can contact your division’s BCC rep named below:

For account assignment changes in mid-January ... talk to your BCC rep before the college closes for the holidays in mid- to late December

For account assignment changes at start of July and new academic fiscal year ... talk to your BCC rep before end of April

For account assignment changes in mid-November ... talk to your BCC rep before end of October

 

The college's Budget Coordinating Committee (BCC) reps are listed below by division ...


Division: President … Budget Officer = President Lee Zak …
BCC rep = Lea Ann Hudson

Division: Business and Finance … Budget Officer = VP Ken England …
BCC rep = Robert Gaskins

Division: Academic Affairs / Dean of the College / DOC … Budget Officer = VP Christine Cozzens …
BCC rep = Emily Stone

Division: Student Affairs / Dean of Students / DOS … Budget Officer = VP Karen Goff …
BCC rep = Raymetta Johnson-Bracey

Division: Enrollment and Admission … Budget Officer = VP Alexa Gaeta …
BCC rep = Valerie Kote-Tawia

Division: Equity and Inclusion … Budget Officer = VP Yves-Rose Porcena …
BCC rep = Lucero Aradillas

Division: College Advancement … Budget Officer = VP Robiaun Charles …
BCC rep = Valarie Boatright

Division: Communications and Marketing … Budget Officer = VP Danita Knight …
BCC rep = Alberta Tennant


Those BCC reps assist their respective division Budget Officers with any requests to change assignments and access to that division’s various accounts.

Those BCC reps are a first-stop resource for budget managers and budget viewers for questions about their accounts, budgets, etc. Robert Gaskins is always a back-up, but the individual division BCC reps will usually have more "on-the-ground" knowledge about that Budget Officer's work with their budgets.

Those BCC reps maintain their respective divisions' ITS lists of valid account numbers each employee can see and charge to when using the college's MFD (multi-function device) print/copy/scan machines.
