Budgeting and Planning

Princeton’s operating budget is a means by which internal and donor resources are stewarded to maximize the University’s teaching and research mission. With that goal, departmental financial managers partner with the Provost’s Office and staff from the Office of Planning, Budget, and Analysis to create sound, strategic financial plans. In this section, you will find an overview of the operating budget, as well as helpful budget-setting and tracking tools, calendars, and best practices.
