The Budget Office’s primary mission is to facilitate the optimal use of the Fairmont State University’s financial resources to achieve the goals outlined in their mission statements and strategic plans, as well as to facilitate the budgeting, reporting, and analysis of such resources.
In working with budgetary units, the Budget Office guides the annual budgetary process, provides budget training, assesses ongoing budget and planning issues, and establishes and monitors controls over allocations. All processes are performed to ensure that budgetary policy and practice conforms to the appropriate policies and state statutes. We provide timely and accurate information for assessing actual performance against planned activities and monitor fiscal performance to provide analysis and decision support. It is our goal to present data in a transparent format that is widely accessible and user friendly.
Budget training sessions (individual or group) are available and encouraged for managers and anyone who has viewing access through Felix. A brief meeting can be scheduled with one of our Budget Office Staff members. We work with, train, and provide direct assistance to administrative and academic departments, providing direction on budgetary procedures and policies.
The Budget Office is also responsible for the wage and fringe benefit budgeting for all full time, part-time, adjunct employees, student workers, temporary appointments, and stipend positions.
