Financial Management, Planning, and Analysis


The Office of Financial Management, Planning and Analysis (FMPA) is responsible for managing the budgeting and financial planning operations of the School of Arts and Sciences. This includes overseeing the operating budget planning functions, developing models and managing financial projections and variance analysis, managing year-by-year budgeting processes, and providing both the support and tools necessary for the departments to fulfill their responsibilities as related to the budgeting and planning processes.

FMPA provides leadership in the development of operating budgets that link resources with SAS’s strategic objectives consistent with the financial and planning policies of the university. This office further provides service that is dedicated to partnering with academic and administrative units by providing the approaches, tools and knowledge required for sound fiscal management.
