Budget Advisory Committee

      • The Senate Budget Advisory committee (SBAC) is a standing Committee of Senate that advises the President on the preparation of the annual budget.  SBAC's mandate arises from s.62(2) of the University Act: "the president must prepare and submit to the board an annual budget in consultation with the appropriate standing committee of the senate."


        • To review the University's annual budget with respect to its impact upon the University's programs and educational services.
        • To make recommendations to the President sufficiently in advance of the adoption of each University budget as to allow SBAC's recommendations to be considered by the President in making budget decisions.
        • To request, receive and review data and make recommendations in a timely manner to the President as deemed appropriate in relation to the University budget.  
        • To recommend to Senate a draft Senate operations budget, in accordance with Ministry guidelines and University policies.
        • To report to Senate on its activities.
