University Budget Office Continuity Plan

Business and Finance (B&F) is committed to continuing operations as efficiently as possible to serve student, faculty, and staff during campus impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. To that end, we have created business continuity plans for each B&F department that outlines how each unit has adjusted hours and processes to function remotely, how staff can be contacted, and what services have been modified or suspended.

What We Do

The University Budget Office (BUD) provides guidance to academic and administrative units across campus to guide the annual budgetary process. We provide resources and trainings, policies and procedures, and budget support. We also offer a financial transparency portal called OpenGov(opens in new window), which provides financial information for the general public and Chico State community.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide assistance in the preparation, analysis, and management of the financial resources of the University in support of the University's strategic priorities. This includes offering knowledge and understanding of budgetary authority and structure, training and development in the use of financial information systems, and assistance to the campus at large in a variety of budgetary areas.
