Budget Construction Overview

About Budget Construction (BC)

Budget Construction is the annual process that requires all units to enter their anticipated budget for the upcoming fiscal year into KFS. In addition to providing a time for all unit to strategically plan for financial activity for the following fiscal year, it provides University leadership with a picture of anticipated activity for each Unit, which ultimately formulates the overall University Operating Budget. BC also ensures that Units are in agreement with anticipated transfers and aligns the budgets properly, and provides continuity in the way in which all Units load budgets.

FY23 Budget Construction is now closed. Thank you for your submissions.

Budget Construction will open on Monday, January 24, 2022. Completed submissions will be due back to Budget, Planning and Institutional Research (BPIR) by Friday, April 15, 2022.

Live Training Session: BPIR is offering a Budget Construction (BC) refresher training course open to all BC Processors. Attendees will gain a functional understanding of how to enter fiscal year budgets into Budget Construction. This hands-on course will review BC basics, FAQ, and allow attendees to work directly in the BC module. Training will be on Wednesday, March 9th from 10-11:30am.
