Financial Resource Planning

The Financial Resource Committee (FRC) includes voting representatives from faculty, employee groups, and administration representatives. As a formal recommending body for institutional funding, FRC sends recommendations forward to Senior Leadership for possible funding. Information on funding decisions is then shared with the Leadership Council.

The college restructured the existing Budget Development Steering Team (BDST) process during the academic year 2018/2019 to strengthen the shared governance structure. The Financial Resource Committee (FRC) was formed in order to increase campus-wide participation in providing financial oversight, planning, and public stewardship of Estrella Mountain Community College resources. As an official reporting sub-committee of Leadership Council, FRC engages in monthly strategic conversations, priority-setting, and decision-making through a shared governance process in an effort to establish a transparent data-informed budget planning process. The committee developed rubrics for both capital and non-capital requests. Monthly meetings include regular updates on the College financials and a review of emerging issues and needs. As part of the FRC, the College refined the college-wide budget process to align with District planning. The process now includes a mechanism for departments to make emergency one-time requests throughout the year. All information, forms, and processes are posted on the college website to help promote transparency regarding the College budget process. During the AY19/20, FRC outlined guidelines for the college community to guide budget cut discussions, review and recommended One-Year-Only (OYO) renewals for FY20/21, and develop and recommend a membership structure to Leadership Council.
