Special Funds Budget Development


Special funds Budget Development is an annual internal process where Departments build and submit changes to their future year non-general budgeted funds. A custom UNCW Special Funds Budget Development application is used and usually becomes available each January for the upcoming budget cycle. Budgets are submitted and approved in the application and are generally due May 1. Remember to check with your divisional contact for your unit’s deadline as many divisions establish earlier deadlines.    

Your submitted budget request should reflect all reasonable, anticipated requirements and receipts for the coming fiscal year. As budget manager, you are accountable for developing a complete and reasonable budget. Therefore, please thoroughly review programs and operations planned in the coming year, including non-cyclical or one-time expenditures (examples: major equipment purchases, change in activities, etc.). There is a checklist under links to help you verify all requirements and justifications have been provided.
