WSU Tri-Cities Budget

Transparent & Inclusive

The Financial Services Division provides budgetary support for the campus, and strives for transparency and inclusion by engaging budgetary participation with the campus community.  We strive to deliver excellent customer services, analytical support, education, and guidance on best practices for using the budget to promote strong financial management throughout the university.  As financial stewards we provide oversight of budget management, identifying and allocating financial resources in alignment with the university’s mission and goals, and providing timely and accurate financial information both internally and externally.

Transparency: Making information as accessible as possible

In December 2019, Chancellor Haynes issued an email addressing the 2020-2021 budget process and asked for your participation through submission of your budget requests.  She also identified her 2020-2021 first line funding priorities as:

  • Safety and compliance needs
  • Legislative and system mandates
  • Debt reduction
  • Requests that increase enrollment and retention
  • Requests that resolve infrastructure issues
