Budget Services

Budget Services plans and oversees the activities of the biennial and interim budget cycles for internal, external, and capital planning.It facilitates the process of translating the university’s academic and administrative plans into budgets utilized for state funding requests, internal allocations and utilization, and execution of the university’s strategic goals and objectives.

Working with the university community, Budget Services assesses and monitors fiscal performance in accordance with approved budget plans for all campus units. In addition, Budget Services plays a key role in performing accurate, comprehensive and timely revenue and expense analysis used for informed executive decision-making, and internal and external reporting. Budget Services is also responsible for position management, support and training of unit budget managers, and the maintenance of budget schedules and process tools.

In response to the University’s changing economic and business models, EWU has engaged Moss Adams to assist the university in developing an efficient and effective budget model to help optimize resource allocation. Visit the budget model redesign page to learn more about this project.
