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 OpenBook, which provides financial information for the general public and Chico State community. OpenBook is currently still in a building phase, please check back with us soon for the launch of this new dashboard. 

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.
