The Budget Office is responsible for the coordination of the College's
operating and capital budgets and the production of the various budget
documents which are submitted to the Board of Trustees, Commonwealth of
Pennsylvania, and the City of Philadelphia. It is this office's responsibility
to ensure that all budgets are completed in an accurate and timely manner
consistent with the guidelines established by the appropriate parties (e.g.,
Community College of Philadelphia Administration, Pennsylvania Department of
Education). Once a budget has been established and approved, the budget
office conveys regular budget status information to senior staff and
individual cost center managers.
The office distributes monthly (DBS) reports which reflect expenditures, encumbrances, and available budget dollars by category within cost centers. The budget office also approves all capital requisitions and obtains Pennsylvania Department of Education approvals for larger leases and capital purchases.
The Budget Office develops expense and revenue projections for use by senior staff. In this capacity, it works closely with other areas of the College. This office also assists in the development of multi-year operating and capital financial plans. Each year, discipline and program costs analyses are prepared, as are net revenue analyses for off-campus and contracted educational programs.
The Budget Office maintains the College's position control function in conjunction with the designated employee in the Human Resources Office.
