TSTC's level of expenditures for each operation and activity is predetermined by an annual operating budget which is approved by the Board of Regents. Throughout the year, funding needs for a department change. To accommodate the increase or decrease in level of funding and changing operating needs, a Request for Budget Change is initiated. The effectiveness of the budget process will require continuous review by all levels of management for adherence to operating budget amounts. When expenditure deviations occur either over or under budget action should be initiated to adjust original operating Budgets. A Request for Budget Change should originate with the account manager, receive approval from the account manager's VP, and then be forwarded to the Business Office, attention Toni Zuniga.
Budget Changes that result in new positions (not previously authorized in the budget), or changes in wages (increase or decrease or deletion of approved positions) require the submission of a Position Change Request form. The Position Change Request must accompany the Request for Budget Change that affects a budgeted position.
