Annual Operating Budget
Revenue and Expense Allocation
Case Western Reserve University operates under a decentralized structure with the philosophy that each management center is responsible for the planning and implementation of academic programs, revenue development and expense management. This concept is implemented with all revenue, except Undergraduate tuition revenue, and direct expense flowing to their respective management center. Because not all revenue or expense is directly developed by a school, allocation rules assign certain revenue and indirect expense for support services. The operating principle guiding these rules is that it fairly assigns revenue or expense as a proxy for actual direct generation of revenue or occurrence of expense.
Reviewed by the Finance Committee and approved by the full Board of Trustees at their June meeting, the Operating Budget below contains summary and detailed information for all management centers of the university.
The 2021 Operating Budget is a 40-page .pdf document, including four appendices, available for viewing and printing.
