Resource Allocation Model Review

For more than 2 decades of operating under incremental budget, Cal State Los Angeles is exploring alternative budget models to better align funding to operational and strategic needs. Under the University’s new president, there is strong support to move towards a more sustainable, accountable, and transparent allocation formula to address structural imbalance university-wide, which evolved from diminishing state appropriation and increasing operational cost. Over a three year period, the Budget Allocation Model Task Force and the Division of Administration and Finance will lead the self-assessment and evaluation of alternative budget models that best fit the unique needs of the campus.
