Budget and Planning

UMKC has recently developed a new budget model, called the Resource Investment Model (RIM). RIM is an all financial resources budget model that takes into consideration resources accounted for across a variety of funds. RIM distributes UMKC's financial and human resources to secure its mission, promote UMKC's values and support outcomes. RIM is organized by responsibility centers that fall into three categories that include revenue producing units and support units:

  • Academic Responsibility Centers
  • Auxiliary Responsibility Centers
  • Support Responsibility Centers

Budget Rules, Roles and Responsibilities

The Budget Rules, Roles and Responsibilities (BRRRs) outline procedures and authority for allocating, spending and monitoring campus budget resources. The BRRRs describe the fiduciary responsibility of the central campus leadership, as well as constituent campus groups such as the Faculty Senate Budget Committee, University Budget Committee, Administrative Council and budget committees within the units. This document clearly articulates the fiscal and fiduciary responsibilities expected of deans, in addition to their academic leadership responsibilities.
