The Annual Allocation Budget Process is internal to UNC Wilmington. This process allocates funds, both permanent and one-time, for the upcoming fiscal year. Permanent funds come from Enrollment Growth and one-time funds come from lapsed benefits, carry forward from the previous year, and university-held reserves. Requests are usually developed annually sometime in the March through June timeframe and are due to the Budget Office in May. Requests are reviewed by the departments to Deans to Vice Chancellors. The Cabinet makes final decisions for allocation. The financial climate of the state and anticipated cuts delay or eliminate the need for this budget process. Ordinarily, requests are entered in the Budget Request System.
