Strategic Budget Advisory Committee (SBAC)
Strategic Budget Advisory Committee


Welcome to the Strategic Budget Advisory Committee (SBAC) web page. The SBAC replaces the previous Budget Advisory Task Force and is now a sub-committee of the campus Strategic Planning Steering Committee. The Committee is advisory to the Chancellor on the relationship between long-range planning and budget development, as well as the implications of planning and budget decisions for various aspects of campus operations.

Members of the SBAC represent all major campus divisions so that we have an inclusive and diverse team considering options and forwarding comments and recommendations to the Chancellor.

The charge of the SBAC is to:

  1. Assist in assuring that planning and budget decisions, both short-term and long-term, are mission driven.
  2. Assist in assuring that planning, budgeting, and assessment are integrated to the fullest extent possible.
  3. Assist in identifying planning or budget issues that facilitate or impede the pursuit of UNO’s mission.
  4. Provide advice on budget policies, significant budgetary actions, and institutional priorities consistent with the UNO strategic plan.

The SBAC website is intended to provide information from a range of sources about the UNO, University of Nebraska, State of Nebraska and national budgetary situation.

In addition, this website is intended to provide the campus community with a tool which you can make recommendations and suggestions about how we can continue to work together, focused on ensuring that UNO remains student-centered, striving for academic excellence and engaged with the community. Please utilize the “Submit Comments” section of this website. We hope to hear from you.
