Business and Supply prepares, maintains, and tracks sixteen budgets, in excess of eighteen million dollars, for University Facilities Management.
These budgets cover the following service areas: Custodial, Repair of Buildings, Grounds, Power Plant, Purchased Utilities, Receiving and Distribution, Refuse, Fleet Services, Occupational Health and Safety, Hazardous Materials, Energy Management, and University Facilities Management. Each area is responsible for initiating their own purchase requisitions and inter-departmental charges (IDC's). All requests for purchases and charge backs are processed through the Business and Supply office.
Access databases and Excel spreadsheets are used to maintain ongoing reports throughout the year for each area. These tools keep the responsible manager informed of the current status of their budget.
Year-end projections are generated for each budget to provide every department to assistance in preparing for the coming year.
