Salary increase pools are developed based upon the frozen April 1 permanent base budget and approved guidelines.

Salary increase decisions are made at the department/college level with consideration to annual performance evaluations.

Final approved salary increases are implemented into the Budget Prep system. Benefits are distributed based on the final salary budget distribution.

Non-personal expenditure changes are limited to new allocations or a reallocation of the existing budget.

Revolving and Auxiliary operations are dependent upon generated revenues.
