Joint Planning & Budget Committee Update
The Joint Planning and Budget Committee (JPBC) is a presidential advisory committee representing the University community. It serves as the institutional oversight body to ensure that institutional goals and division level planning and budgeting are interlinked and informed by assessment to advance the strategic goals and priorities established in Building a Better Brockport, the strategic plan for the University. The committee meets on select Thursdays from 8:30 - 10:30 am throughout the academic year. Meetings are open and the SUNY Brockport community is encouraged to attend.
In the latter half of the spring semester, JPBC received presentations on budget updates from BASC, DIFR, and BSG. Similarly, budget updates for fee-based budgets also were presented. A JPBC subcommittee reviewed and made recommendations regarding 40 Investment Funds proposals. All proposers have been notified of final funding decisions. Another subcommittee of JPBC, the Instructional Technology and Classroom Renovation Committee, made recommendations for $500,000 in classroom renovations, and the Campus Based Fee Review Committee shared their recommendations for campus fees and course-based fees. In the final meeting of the semester, the Provost shared the assessment plan for the University’s strategic plan, and new purchasing guidelines were shared from the office of procurement and purchase services.
The next JPBC meeting will take place in September near the start of the next academic year and will be announced in the Daily Eagle.
