University Budget Office
The University Budget Office (UBO) provides the Chico State community and the general public with easy access to a variety of financial information about the university. Our office works with the University academic and administrative units to guide the annual budgetary process in support of campus strategies.
In addition to the reports available on our website, we are utilizing OpenGov in support of the transparency efforts of the state of California. This easy to use tool requires no login, and you may easily create and save custom reports. To access OpenGov please visit our portal. Or, see our how to guides for tips on using OpenGov.
The University Budget Committee (UBC) is a group of campus leaders, faculty and staff. Members serve one year and meet on a regular basis to review the interrelationship of academic programs and the campus budget, propose strategies, and review the effects of budget implementation before adoption by the University. The UBC operates in support of Executive Memorandum (05-017).
