The purpose of the continuation budget process is to quickly load the bulk of the university's starting budget using an automated feed (as opposed to entering all the budget information using the Budget Revision process). In order to ensure uniformity of this feed process, some budget lines are discretionary based on departmental budget needs and authorization. Other lines, such as personnel and general fund distribution, are non-discretionary and subject to central guidlines. The information here discusses all of the important aspects of budgeting and endeavors to guide fiscal managers through the continuation process.
Due to the sensitive information contained in the continuation files, access is restricted to financial managers only.
